My mother has been a die-hard, Reagan-loving conservative for most of her life. Two days ago she watched a documentary called "Park Avenue" on Netflix that was about the absolutely disgusting greed and wealth of the Kochs and their buddies and their influence on politics, tea party, etc.
She says shes a liberal now, and I'm very happy for her.

Also, anyone know where I can find this documentary?

I meant the whole thing, but anyway... I didn't realize it wasn't even released yet. I guess I got excited and missed that part.
Whoops, I mispelled....

I'm rather amazed that the decline of western civilization isn't an active tag. I guess it's just usually assumed to be present on most videos here.
oops it is, I fixed it

When America finally collapses the rest of the world is going to vomit from motion sickness, progress will happen so fast.
I'm hoping for "loses hegemony" rather than "collapse." Besides, it's not like the Kocks couldn't easily leave the country and set up their corporate haven somewhere else without breaking a sweat.
America wont let itself continue to exist as anything but the dominant empire of the earth. If it loses control, it will end itself to remove the competition of future endeavors by the rich to rule the planet. That being said, I remain hopeful that other countries will slay these fucks in the streets. I hope they move to France first, and half of them don't make it to Britain while Germany denies any American rich ever tried to live there at all, while disposing of their bodies in Somalia.
the thing that annoys me the most is that wealth inequality bad for the entire economy...rich people are robbing money from poor people and in the process devaluing all money for everyone
actually that annoys me the second-most
It's The Joke. The one people say is a component of reality itself. The Primary Hilarious Contradiction Against Reason. The most successful humans are the worst. The ones who delight in the enjoyment of cruelty and death. All God's prophets are bastards.
Reality prefers the Koch brothers.
"The most successful humans are the worst."
That's capitalism in a nutshell.
I think even these assholes realize fucking over the middle and lower classes is bad, numbers-wise.
That doesn't overcome their apparent hatred of those who haven't become rich. They might know that overall, they're helping sink humanity, but it won't keep THEM from living in the lap of luxury, and it feeds into their prejudices about the 99% (they're poor because they don't work hard, so I should pay them less, making them poor, because they don't work hard, etc.).
It's so cute how you think it doesn't work this way EVERYWHERE.
Hint, it totally does.
"work" is the complete opposite word for it.
Not as cute as assuming I wasn't referring to it being this way EVERYWHERE

Blah. Shortsighted. They will just pull out their funding in a few years anyway.
