    I'm sure your quick perusing of Wikipedia lent you to perhaps some discussion of the difference between de jure oppression and de facto oppression, which the latter was certainly quite common in Germany shortly before the Nazi party's rise and reinstatement of de jure oppression. It would have also demonstrated that they were certainly not part of the backbone of the German state or society.

    The wealthy, in the United States, on the other hand, certainly hold power and influence. The revolution was largely crafted by them, the state which existed afterwards was molded in their image, the industrial capitalist who superceded the original wealth crafted the rise of modern America.

    Hardly comparable situations and plights, I'm afraid.

    Ok, so Republicans use terms like "takers," therefore Republicans are like Hitler!

    Lol

    Here is a hint.

    If it's voluntary, then by definition, it's not slavery.

    And this guy doesn't see the irony of talking like this in a thread about demonizing people.

    You claimed the wealthy deserve "so and so" -- respect, their wealth, whatever -- because of the risks they take. I explained why they don't take risks, and how this fact is evident in practical things anyone can understand. You then further claimed that the wealthy's personal use of their wealth creates jobs, I guess to shock and awe me into silence or something. I then explained that their personal use of their wealth is extremely inefficient at job creation, again in terms of practical things anyone can understand.

    Their "public" use of wealth -- to create jobs via corporations or business -- is also increasingly inefficient at job creation because modern economics and marketing is the science of creating as much wealth as possible while creating as few jobs as possible so that a greater portion of the wealth will be reserved for shareholders and for executives (in the distant past, separate entities, but these days, mostly the same people). If you do create a job, it's better to create it in China and India where they'll work for pennies and then sell it back wholesale to the domestic market on credit. A process that creates serfs and slaves.

    In the old, old days when modern capitalism was just starting out, "executives" (merchants and artificers) performed their service on behalf of shareholders who were usually landed aristocrats who backed economic endeavors (such as the establishment of a windmill to power simple machines) on the surety of their lands and properties. These days, the source of wealth is the capability to create wealth, so executives carry value that used to exist in land and property in their own person and reputation as wealth creators.

    Which means Donald Trump is the guy who both creates and has all the wealth, as opposed to the guy who creates wealth on behalf of others in exchange for a fee. That's basically the resuscitation of the lord class.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Maybe, but we are all in servitude to someone or another as we are beholden to someone. Our wives or family for instance. So this, in itself isn't an automatic bad thing.
