    Re: Dictatorship of the proletariat vs. dictatorship of the bankers

    I prefer Dictatorship of Me.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Which is exactly what the 99%ers would do. Big deal, I still prefer those who have earned it over those who just want to be handed it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    bingo. If American foreign policy has to be directed by people who specialize in brutally seeking advantage for their own team by putting counterparties in no-win situations....

    Neither, of course.
    Or, which is the lessor of the two evils (dictatorship) the banker or the working man !!
    Man should not have to live as he did two millenia ago, or even two centuries ago.
