Failed Reconstruction

In the Peter Sellers comedy The Mouse That Roared, the tiny Duchy of Grand Fenwick provoked the USA to attack, hoping the money pouring in for reconstruction after they lost would rescue their crumbling finances. If that logic were true, Afghanistan should be rolling, however, it is now the poorest country in Asia, behind even North Korea and Myanmar.

The political struggle in the USA is clarifying and simplifying. On one side are the grossly obese, grossly greedy, grossly selfish, grossly overpaid, grossly consuming, grossly out of touch — the likes of Chris Christy, David Koch, Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh, wall street bankers, corporate CEO (Chief Executive Officer) s and their Republican toadies. On the other side are the middle and lower classes who have been bamboozled over the last 60 years into handing more and more of their share of the wealth pie to the pirates. The situation is similar to France in 1789 when the nobility had completely lost touch with the plight of the common people and had allowed their belief in their superiority and privilege to balloon absurdly. The consequence was they literally lost their heads. It has happened many times in many places when the upper classes got too successful, too greedy and full of themselves. It could happen again in the USA.
