Soldiers, Children Of the Poor, Are Collateral Damage For The Rich
A term becomes a myth; the myth becomes a religion. We are all conditioned by the misguided use of terms and connections so a way of looking at things seems absurd. The German economy acts like a bulldozer rather than a locomotive.
Neoliberalism has brought us back to Rockefeller's best times. Bill Gates is 1.4 million times as rich as the average American. A "feudal lifestyle" is made out to be worthwhile and in no way negatively described. Thus "re-feudalization" is dulled as a polemical term.

One of the things that I want to say about this that I haven't yet said is that a two party dictatorship is much smarter than a one party dictatorship.
