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?

It's right up there, dude. Above your comment.

Jet Bin Fever
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.

Park Avenue? http://youtu.be/6niWzomA_So

Citizen Kock? Not yet, it's got 20 days to go on Kickstarter now. kck.st/159gqqp

Watching Park Avenue now, thanks for the heads up.

Whoops, I mispelled....



nah, nevermind.

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.
SteamPoweredKleenex
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.

SteamPoweredKleenex
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.).

I think some of it is the whole, "you don't work hard enough, so you don't deserve money, I hate you", but I think another philosophy amongst this lot is, "We were smart enough (or inherited the means) to game the system and you didn't. I gots mine...and I'll take all of yours as well cause I can. Tough shit you're one of the dumb, unwashed masses.".

These people gamed the system so badly that they broke it and tilted it completely in their favor. They can now move the goal posts wherever they want and any rules/regulations that would fix and reset some of the damage is tore up before it hits the table...or there is something in place to make it ineffectual...or the rule's final version has so many loopholes that nothing changes...or the penalties are so miniscule and insignificant that there is no reason to not reap the rewards of breaking the rule...

I think we're well beyond ever fixing this shit. We're just riding the whims of a group that wants to see how much they can get away with. OR this shit has been broken for so long, that we just conveniently notice it in our age of immediate information and self surveillance?

It's so cute how you think it doesn't work this way EVERYWHERE.

Hint, it totally does.

memedumpster
"work" is the complete opposite word for it.

sosage
Not as cute as assuming I wasn't referring to it being this way EVERYWHERE

We developed a bad case of Koch-rot, doc says it might be incurable.

Can we just, I dunno, abolish money now? For a while there it seemed like a really great idea to have a medium of exchange for goods and services, but it's not really working out anymore. Oh well, back to barter until we find something else!
