@Jack. I love you man. You're a rational ideologue who is wired into the real world existence of the unemployed and the underemployed; and the working poor, and the poor (including moms and dads- fully 1 out of every 5 children in America) . One can stay in the tower or get down in the weeds but as someone who has some smarts both learned and street, the action is on the streets. I have the benefit of hindsight in posting this comment tonight- weeks after you. Tonight I'm watching social unrest unfold not in Tunisia, Bahrain, Yemen, Egypt, Libya or Syria....but England for God Save the Queen's sake. For a fifth surreal night. Societal rebellion is a non-quantified externality of inequality, and one that increases exponentially as does the inequality gap. In the global Twitter generation in which we live, America and England are separated by no more than one degrees of tweetaration. Social conditions in the US are such that I fear we're floating into the perfect storm. Unchecked and unabated, how long might you expect the disenfranchised to behave like sheep? Those costs will not be insignificant. Think.
