    In his unbound stupidity he removed property rights and the wealth of the people. Hell, the little retard just gave the state control over all capital.

    THat is the primary problem that so many don't seem to understand. Competition is good for productivity. Rewards for effort work to create a better economy for all involved. The sky's the limit when you know that you can be whatever you want to be, given the drive, opportunity, and skills. Being treated like an ant in a colony leads to apathy.

    There are those that fail when they did everything in their power to not, and then there are those that went out of their way to fail. Not surprisingly, the later group bitches more about their failure.

    That is the OWS mantra in a nutshell.

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

    Not sure this us what you meant.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Heh, just razzin the usual suspects.

    In all seriousness I think some of these policies would be great. The shortsighted viewpoint only sees this as taking from the haves and giving to the have nots as though it is merely a shallow redistribution scheme meant only to create dependents. In the long term these kinds of things build strong, confident societies that increase and diversify in functionality thus relieving the burden of welfare, of redistribution through a more natural, market driven balance in which power is restored to a more egalitarian structure.

    In Rolling Stone this former Occupy wackobird gets full coverage with his tripe. Warner Todd Hudson sums it up best in Breitbart:

    "Recently Rolling Stone magazine published a story that urges the millennial generation to demand communism in America by eliminating private property, "guaranteeing" everyone a job and turning banks into state property. After finding some opposition on Twitter, the writer let loose some ideas that didn't make the cut of his article: "exterminate" the rich and take away their money and property.After reading the article published on January 3, one thing we learn from former Occupy Wall Street organizer Jesse A. Myerson is that he thinks things are bad in America today. America is so bad--or, as he so eruditely puts it, America "blows"--that he thinks it is time to institute some of the worst communist tropes in the anti-capitalist's bag of tricks, all the same boring ideas that have been proven disastrous everywhere they've been tried for over 100 years."

    'Rolling Stone' Writer Wants Communism, Redistributed Wealth

    All I can do is shake my head at these people....What is the matter with people today?

    The problem is some dont know better, they never saw the evils of communism and socialism. Its just a bunch of movies to them.

    You also cant blame them-we have a bunch of neo marxists in the media, pop culture, and the political parties youth are more likely to affiliate with. Its all they know, and thats a tragedy.

    Not sure they work for me. Not that I'm opposed to reversing some of the redistribution we've being doing, from working man to wealthy.
