Sa va Morty - What are you doing these days?


::Recalling those dark days of October 1917, when the toiling masses had nothing to lose, they did something most extraordinary. One must understand starvation in order to understand the Bolshevik revolution---and this understanding, I am sure, escapes all of us here.

:Indeed, but starvation doesn't explain bolshevism.

Maybe it depends on whose doing the starving. If a serious crash thrusts "middle" class America into precarious existence - watch out. It could get very ugly. Naturally those in power will try to channel rage (and there will be plenty) in the direction of a State Capitalist dictatorship to avoid a socialist threat to their position of relative privilege. As things stand now, they would very likely accomplish this disaster.
