When those who called themselves capitalists, but were corporatists (protected from capitalistic pressures and many government pressures) brought the world the Great Depression, the people spoke up and unions gained power, social security protected the little old guy and lady.

Since the days of Ike, there has been a consistent thrust to undo new deal protections set up by democracy and the little guy. Milton Freidman and his Chicago Revolution tore up Chili, and is responsible for the lax rebuild, you can say RAPE of New Orleans.

These neo-liberal, now known as neo-conservatives have been at it for way too long. America works best and is great BECAUSE the little guy stood up to the fief lords. A blend of capitalism and protections for those who cannot care for themselves, ie social security is what works best.

Damn, I need to get off this thing, I get so mad.
