It’s part and parcel of the Marxist line that “the wealthy” must be penalized for being so much more comfortable than the proletariat.
The trouble is, of course, as even a superficial examination of history will reveal, that once the wealthy are stripped of their “wealth” then society becomes a poverty-stricken mess with nothing to offer the screaming mob any longer, and revolution and anarchy are the inevitable result. Political revolution is the sure result.
This revolution is Obama, Chaper II. He studied his Karl Marx well, and is employing congress and his voter base well - as the Useful Idiots they are.
Strange that after so much fuss and fury, America has surrendered to Marxism/communism without so much as a ruffle.
Geithner knows he personally has nothing to worry about, as the maxim is , “From each according to his ability..”
How strange. One might conclude we fought and won the Cold War...for this?
