The Kochs may be right

Reader comment on: The New Yorker on David and Charles Koch

Submitted by Joe (United States), Apr 3, 2011 23:56

and yet....

Look at how things are going down the tubes before your eyes. It seems obvious to me, as I watch no one even question that any/all jobs should go to the cheapest labor market, and that the money entrusted to the top for reinvestment in our society just hasn't trickled down but has concentrated up there, that what more and more people are realizing is that no matter how one justifies it, the system and policies we have in place are no longer serving the vast majority of the people who live under them. The direction the Kochs want to take things will only serve to exacerbate the situation.

The simple fact is that a consumer based economy depends on having a certain portion of the wealth disbursed in the hands of the working class. Without that, you have what ends up being essentially a feudal system. This level of wealth concentration (or anything worse) is a death sentence for the American way of life.

This is not about right/ left. It's about Haves/Have nots.
