People have lost jobs today because of corporate greed.
What is corporate greed? Please define it. I hear a lot about how corporate greed is so awful, but no one seems to clarify what it is they are talking about.
Seeking profit? That's a wonderful thing. Without profit as a motivation, you end up wasteful and inefficient like government.
But as it continues there will be more and more people out of work or can't find work.
That's ridiculous. People who are out of work or can't find work are in that position because they chose to be there. What you often see are non-working people who want to pick and choose what work they do, and expect someone else to provide work for them. If you are willing to work, there is work out there. There is nothing stopping you from working for yourself - become a commercial beekeeper, for example.
This will affect the young initially because there is no jobs for them when they reach the normal age of employment.
Normal age of employment? What's that? Any kid old enough to work is old enough to work.
And then it is going to affect the old because there will be no youngens supporting the old geezers.
What responsibility do 'youngens' have to support old geezers? Whatever happened to old geezers living off the accumulated fruits of their labors over the years?
Both groups at that point will be in the mood for a revolution.
A revolution? In what manner? What volute will they be returning to? (You do know that volute is the root word of revolution or convolute, right?)
i'd have to take issue with this one. the French revolution brought chaos, anarchy, and death.
It also brought massive advancements in personal liberties. A little bit of chaos, anarchy, and death is a small price to pay for personal liberty. The American colonists also agreed that death was better than not having liberty.
Last I heard the stock market is over 12,000.
So? What does that have to do with the price of rice in China? It doesn't. 12,000 is a meaningless number. You are actually referring to the Dow Industrial Average, and not the stock market. If a stock price gets too low, it gets booted from the Dow and replaced with a better performing stock. If you kept the same companies in the Dow, the price would be much lower than 12,000.
Then look at what is used to measure the Dow. 12,000 is a measure in US dollars. Price the Dow with a different currency. In 2001, it took something like 49 ounces of gold to buy the Dow. Now, you can buy the Dow for less than 9 ounces. The Dow has 20% of the value it had 10 years ago.
The wealth distribution is going from the middle class to the filthy rich. There is no problem in the investment market. The rich protected the rich, and always will.
They are losing their butt in the stock market. Smart investors bailed out of the stock market already...or rather, they bailed out of the US stock market. They very well may be invested in other stock markets in other countries.
Do you see BP suffering?
If BP is doing so well, why don't you invest your money in BP and join in the party?
Didn't he bring Germany out of poverty? Isn't Germany an economic power today?
Yes, Hitler brought Germany out of poverty and massive debt back then. What Hitler did by replacing the currency has nothing to do with why Germany is an economic power today.
Qaddafi, same thing. Castro, same thing. These people are backed for a reason. There initial platform is to take from the rich and give to the poor.
Where do you come up with this stuff? Qaddafi and Castro came to power by being military leaders and overthrowing the old government. They were backed by people who profited by them being in power, and the few backing them were holding all the guns. The common citizenry submitted to their rule, simply because they had a gun held to their heads.
A democracy requires an educated population.
No it doesn't. It just requires people to find a common consensus. The Old English Common law was set up and instituted by uneducated people exercising democratic processes.
Our constitution, “by the people for the people”, that was intended to mean educated people not all people.
That is flat absurd. That constitution also set up the right to a trial by jury of your peers - common, uneducated people judging both your innocence and the LAW.
Communism and dictatorships are the only form of governments that can control a tribal culture. If these people are not suppressed and allowed to become educated then you have a chance of a good democracy. But not until.
What about the Iroquois League? They had an excellent democracy, involving several uneducated tribes.
