Republican Party is opposed to ALL of this now.

They want to kill unions, provide no job security by offering only part time or contract jobs, roll back worker protection laws, deny increases in minimum wage, keep us CONTINUALLY in war, and ELIMINATE social security.

Its nice of you to strawman the 'enemy'.
It makes it so much easier to hate them.

Unions are in cahoots with Big Business. Anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional.

Minimum wages also benefit big business, who can afford to automate, or trim those costs elsewhere. If you think it will EVER come from executive compensation dream on. The government hiked minimum wage where I live so businesses cut back on the number of staff they keep around, and squeeze the workers in the middle that much more. I know entry-level professionals only make a few dollars an hour above minimum wage who previously would have made half again. Is it fair to those who got an education and skills to lose out to those who did nothing to better themselves?

Public sector pensions are another boondoggle. Look at Illinois. People can enrich themselves on the taxpayer's dime and then when they retire, they move to a low-tax state where they no longer pay into what they leech out of.

Thank you for your feedback on a perceived weakness in my being. As a result of your comment I am going to review and reflect on inherent biases in my reaction to "the opposition" and what purpose this has served in my life. And whether it is time now to reevaluate that position.

Autoworkers.

They lobby the government for massive subsides to the automobile sector.

They were also behind the bailout for General Motors when they nearly went under in '08.

yeah sad.. and in the end the few jobs they were spending all their money trying to save get destroyed by automation anyway.

hardly equivalent to the1% scamming the country out of trillions in Trumps tax fraud to buy back shares and outsource overseas and ramp up the technology on the automation... they are about to throw the drained body of the corpse they have been feeding off for the last 2 centuries into the bone grinder.

Nobel laureate James Buchanan is the intellectual linchpin of the Koch-funded attack on democratic institutions, argues Duke historian Nancy MacLean

Ask people to name the key minds that have shaped America’s burst of radical right-wing attacks on working conditions, consumer rights and public services, and they will typically mention figures like free market-champion Milton Friedman, libertarian guru Ayn Rand, and laissez-faire economists Friedrich Hayek and Ludwig von Mises.


James McGill Buchanan is a name you will rarely hear unless you’ve taken several classes in economics. And if the Tennessee-born Nobel laureate were alive today, it would suit him just fine that most well-informed journalists, liberal politicians, and even many economics students have little understanding of his work.

The reason? Duke historian Nancy MacLean contends that his philosophy is so stark that even young libertarian acolytes are only introduced to it after they have accepted the relatively sunny perspective of Ayn Rand. (Yes, you read that correctly). If Americans really knew what Buchanan thought and promoted, and how destructively his vision is manifesting under their noses, it would dawn on them how close the country is to a transformation most would not even want to imagine, much less accept.

That is a dangerous blind spot, MacLean argues in a meticulously researched book, Democracy in Chains, a finalist for the National Book Award in Nonfiction. While Americans grapple with Donald Trump’s chaotic presidency, we may be missing the key to changes that are taking place far beyond the level of mere politics. Once these changes are locked into place, there may be no going back.

An Unlocked Door in Virginia


MacLean’s book reads like an intellectual detective story. In 2010, she moved to North Carolina, where a Tea Party-dominated Republican Party got control of both houses of the state legislature and began pushing through a radical program to suppress voter rights, decimate public services, and slash taxes on the wealthy that shocked a state long a beacon of southern moderation. Up to this point, the figure of James Buchanan flickered in her peripheral vision, but as she began to study his work closely, the events in North Carolina and also Wisconsin, where Governor Scott Walker was leading assaults on collective bargaining rights, shifted her focus.

Could it be that this relatively obscure economist’s distinctive thought was being put forcefully into action in real time?

MacLean could not gain access to Buchanan’s papers to test her hypothesis until after his death in January 2013. That year, just as the government was being shut down by Ted Cruz & Co., she traveled to George Mason University in Virginia, where the economist’s papers lay willy-nilly across the offices of a building now abandoned by the Koch-funded faculty to a new, fancier center in Arlington.

MacLean was stunned. The archive of the man who had sought to stay under the radar had been left totally unsorted and unguarded. The historian plunged in, and she read through boxes and drawers full of papers that included personal correspondence between Buchanan and billionaire industrialist Charles Koch. That’s when she had an amazing realization: here was the intellectual linchpin of a stealth revolution currently in progress.

A Theory of Property Supremacy

Buchanan, a 1940 graduate of Middle Tennessee State University who later attended the University of Chicago for graduate study, started out as a conventional public finance economist. But he grew frustrated by the way in which economic theorists ignored the political process.

Buchanan began working on a description of power that started out as a critique of how institutions functioned in the relatively liberal 1950s and ‘60s, a time when economist John Maynard Keynes’s ideas about the need for government intervention in markets to protect people from flaws so clearly demonstrated in the Great Depression held sway. Buchanan, MacLean notes, was incensed at what he saw as a move toward socialism and deeply suspicious of any form of state action that channels resources to the public.

Quote:"Buchanan was incensed at what he saw as a move toward socialism and deeply suspicious of any form of state action that channels resources to the public. Why should the federal government be able to force the wealthy to pay for goods and programs that served ordinary citizens?"

Quote:"Buchanan’s view of human nature was distinctly dismal. Buchanan insisted that people were primarily driven by venal self-interest. politicians and government workers were out for themselves, and so, for that matter, were teachers, doctors, and civil rights activists."

Quote:"Buchanan saw society as a cutthroat realm of makers constantly under siege by takers. His own language was often more stark, warning the alleged “prey” of “parasites” and “predators” out to fleece them. The economist launched a center dedicated to his theories."

Another not so fun fact. Prior to the recent tax cuts, the US had some of the highest corporate tax rates in the world, and oppressive income taxes are the norm in the progressive left's exemplar countries.

And that was remembered fondly as THE MOST prosperous time in America. In fact given his age, I have NO DOUBT that THIS is the era that Donald Trump refers to when he says.. "Make America Great AGAIN."

Doesn't it seem funny that, here on a Conspiracy Forum of all places, that even when an article is posted about a 1% eliiter and the fleecing of America, they STILL won't believe it unless it has something to do with poor people fleecing America.

Who do you think would have the greater advantage in a conspiracy? 1% of the population, or the masses themselves?

explain exactly why it is even remotely neo marxist propaganda?

you have no fkn idea do you?

you have been trained like a good dog to attack relentlessly anyone that advocates protection of the environment or social groups that are struggling at the low end of the economic scale.. with largely meaningless accusations repeatedly

it means nothing to me or to anyone else who sees it for what it is..

it is more about you pushing ad nausem propaganda to invoke fear and hatred in your narcissistic group that is now verging on the very volatile and totally manufactured, full blown group NPD

[Image: Dh3QLkMX4AEoXrJ.jpg]


it is propaganda , no problem about that.. but this propaganda explains pretty clearly with clearly definable words, the propaganda used against you that makes you parrot the same repetitive lines over and over again every time your cognition is challenged.. it's a sub-conscious response. It feels natural to you and even legitimate but Trump's propaganda is anything but, it was manufactured and highly weaponized elsewhere as a psychological warfare attack designed to destroy the USA as we know it.
