David Simon on America as a Horror Show | Moyers & Company | BillMoyers.com

I should make the point and David Simon does allude to it, that the economic greed and pillaging is now affecting the white population.

Part of it became what we all loathe, the Tea Baggers. The other part became the Occupy movement. But that isn’t going to be the end of it, not by a long shot.

No – I suspect push is going to come to shove and that we’re going to see the heads of corporate leaders, politicians et al on spikes. It’s going to happen. If history is any lesson it has happened time and again, not just here in the U.S. but elsewhere.

People will only take so much shit before they rebel.

  1. I don’t know if you saw my blog post the other day. It was about that Tom Perkins remark- totally offensive- how the 1% is being treated by the public like the Jews in the Nazi time. In my post I made the case that there is a far closer parallel historically speaking. The French Revolution and the years leading up to that.

    Weirdly as if by magic another member of the super-wealthy made a remark that Obamacare was allowing people to buy guillotines. (I admit I didn’t read the statement. It was too stupid.) The truth of the matter is that they are getting a little worried that things are getting out of their control.
