They(Leftists) accept the unfairness as absolute necessity. They merely want to switch the goodies(Endlessly)from those that have them to those that don't. That switching does nothing to disturb life's inequality of outcomes,it just becomes part of the process.

You have been talking about Obama's complicity,but you never mentioned the Federal Reserve?????
How long in your opinion has this policy of printing money to handle short term debt problems been going on? Did it start in Jan 2009? Long term,of course,always has a day of reckoning,for everybody&everything,but short term tactics as a whole,add up to long term strategy.

THE POSSESSED/DEVILS is one of my favorites, but you get into a kind of paranoid anything-is-anything-ism when you implicitly compare the Obami to nihilists and revolutionaries bringing chaos to a Russian province.
That's what is happening at ZC.
CK wrote,"devil or demon"
There is a context for this. Doestoyevsky wrote a novel about leftists in Russia,mistranslated,The Possessed,better translated,The Devils,best Translation DEMONS,then in honor of Doestovesky's novel,von Doderer(Austrian) wrote his Epic,Demons about the rise of Facism. Broch later wrote The Spell,and Mann wrote Dr Faustus,all of which describe the RED and BLACK fascism that swamped Europe. What is happening here is a different process;this is about the collapse of Empires(First the USSR),and the chaos that results therof. WW1,WW2,Russian Revolution were all results of the collapse of the old order of empires in the 19th Century.
"How can Obama’s actions, in regard to the economy, be anything other than intentional? He has to know the long term effect of his deficits. He has to know that they will lead to economic collapse."
If it is factually correct that this is intentional,then he needs to be tried/convicted of High Crimes/Treason,and removed from office. All you need is proof.
arrogance and anger.
hatred and hostility he vomited
rage/level of hatred.
boil leaking pus
Is Obama a smelly,angry,vomiting,crappy,puss filled pig,or a nice 4h raised pig that goes to country fairs like Wilbur?
It is there, like a boil leaking pus all over their faces. We ignore it at our own peril, my frems.
What you saying is they hate what you love,and you hate what they love,and you all hate each other. Where's this going in the "Real" world that we all live in?
I think code words are the key to this dispute. IN MY OPINION,Obama was elected to push our Government CLOSER to the West European model of Social Democracy,but that cannot actually be expressed by a Liberal Politician in America for obvious reasons,so the mandate remains subliminal.
The question that is interesting to me is that kind of pushing for Social Democracy: unconstitutional,illegal,treasonous???
I am linking Jonah Goldberg's piece from Commentary today. "What kind of a Socialist is Barack Obama?" Easy Answer,he's similiar to the kind found in Western European Democracies. It seemed Goldberg was not as comfortable with this subject as he usually is with his Liberal Fascism umbrella."But is it correct, as an objective matter, to call Obama’s agenda “socialist”? That depends on what one means by socialism." Okay Jonah,
