We cannot run our economy with a bayonet like that. But what are the protesters protesting? Democracy? We’re not a democracy, IMO. We’re closer to a plutocracy and not just in politics but also in education.

I don’t know if we’re a plutocracy or not (I see both sides of that argument) but there’s no doubt our democracy is compromised in many ways. There are large groups of people who cannot vote for a candidate they substantively agree with, because no such candidate exists.

It’s why E.Warren wants to forgive these loans and provide not just a chance but change the mix of who get’s into power and influential positions. What this system does is limit who gets to play — meaning the top 1%.

Although I disagree with the “forgive loans” proposal, I completely agree that we’re creating a multitiered society by training and avocation.

But look whose going to have to work and risk their lives, the top 1%? No, the most fragile will. And the conspiracy theorist in me says, that’s the way we want it, we cannot change.

Hmmmmm. Seems to me that this is just a variation on a well-known historical economic reality, that being that during times of recession, inequality increases.
