.. after the world war(s), just about the entire world went back and rewrote what they consider to be their ‘bill of rights’, ‘declaration of independence’, etc – why because they lost? NO, they did so because those old ways of life failed and did NOT work. Well our system has failed, it has not been changed since its birth except to better the 1%. Do the math, when the top 1% were taxed at 90% under FDR they still earned handsomely, and that money that was earned thru taxes went to build infrastructure, create jobs, new jobs, new research programs, we sent people to outer space. Im all for Capitalism, but i am not up for killing off the middle class.
