And the people explode: On capitalism, pressure and rage.

900jeffdorchen

It can be argued that Western democratic republics evolved to be adaptable to popular rage. They were designed with stopcocks and pressure valves. Our government in the USA has evolved to be large and complex not because of some philosophy that big government is better. It's evolved to be large and complex to regulate the rage of the people against the multidirectional injustices of capitalism.

In a Moment of Truth, Jeff Dorchen mounts the world's priority pendulum, stuck firmly in the "greed" half of its arc between communalism and self-interest since the Reagan/Thatcher years, and warns that mounting debt for the poor and bailouts for the rich, and shrieking bats for CNBC and riots and corruption and naked greed only last so long before the violence swings back around.
