Paul B. Farrell sends a chilling warning in this article from MarketWatch, cautioning that unless the Super Rich start getting taxed right now, the United States risks another American Revolution -- or worse -- a meltdown and the Great Depression 2.0.
Warning: Mubarak, Gaddafi, Ali, Assad, even the Saudis also lived in the Super-Rich Delusion. Have for a long time. Were vulnerable. Ripe for a revolution. They, too, honestly believed they were divinely protected, chosen for great earthly wealth, enjoyed great armies.
Then, suddenly, out of the blue, a new "educated, unemployed and frustrated" generation turned on them, is now rebelling, demanding their share of economic benefits, opportunities, triggering revolutions, seeking retribution.
I guess this is what Thomas Jefferson meant when he warned that "Occasionally the tree of Liberty must be watered with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants."
