    Default Return of the class war

    In the UK today the coalition of Conservatives and Liberals today announced that they where preparing to change the laws in the country governing trade unions and strike action on the same day that one of the banks dependent upon the taxpayer announced it planned to grant a board room bonus of two million.

    To me this just proves that the class war is back and back big style but there arent any socialists anymore, there arent any really powerful unions or unionisation across trade and industry. I think the capitalists will be kicking against an open door and they're going to totally trample everyone else.

    I think so too. But these things are cyclical.

    I hope that it's cyclical. The pendulum swings too far one way and then swings back...I hope. I'm havin' my doubts this time.

    Wouldn't you think the knowledge of types would put an end to class wars?

    Why is the world so slow to adopt typology into it's political policies. Everyone jumped on freuds bandwagon and used his theories to make us want a whole load of junk we don't need. Why can't everyone jump on the Jung train?

    Imagine how better off society will be when it finds it's soul.

    Nothing new, there has always been a class war... and it is still ongoing. Isn't hard to notice it in California.

    Big businesses pay big bucks to those who would make it easier for them to make money.

    Unions support those who will make it easier for the union to have a stable income and etc.

    Yeah I'm not likeing this class war, especially with the lower and upper classes rising while the middle class slowly vanishes away. But surely, there must be some economic method that can prevent or change that, right?

    This always bring me back to this video about how the rich are afraid of their fortunes being taken away.

    Most probable solutions have been met with aggression in every way possible. Some of them, I even have problems with them myself on every side of the political spectrum.

    Thanks for the link to the videos, I'll check them out later (not enough time for now).

    Anyway though, overly wealthy people in general make me sick, and I'm not talking about those that make an above average living, I'm talking about those that essentially make millions of dollars a minute; or if the saying is true how 90% of the wealth in this country is owned by 5% of the population. Personally I think people of this kind of wealth should be taxed out to kazoo so that money can go to those that need it; that or change within the basic infrastructure of our economy.

    Ohhh...I think you'll like watching the video then. I do say that it is kind of long though.

    Unfortunately, that's called socialism by other people. And in the words of those other people, socialism is evil. (note: by other people)
