Occam's Razor... at what point does the razor get blunt from overuse? [View all]

Let us accept the age old liberal argument that the Plutocracy is not actually trying to kill off the excess workers that can't find a job in the new economy.

The Right keeps cutting jobs and sending them overseas, while cutting welfare and even benefits for the troops. Each time they do this, it costs lives and drives people into abject poverty and homelessness. Liberals remind the Plutocracy of the consequences of their actions. The Plutocrats, upon hearing this, go right back to doing it again. This process has repeated itself repeatedly over the last TWO HUNDRED years.

Now let's look at the example of a homici-er, um, inconsiderate driver. This driver takes a Hummer and drives to the country club, but along the way there's a bunch of schoolkids making their way to school. His Hummer brutally plows through them as they cross the street, killing 5 kids and wounding a dozen, and he never slows down to so much as look at the carnage left in his wake. The cops arrest him and he chastises the kids for being in his way. His defense fails, he pays a fine, but he doesn't see a day in jail. The next week he comes back down that road and kills another 5 kids, all without even slowing down. This time he has bought the judge and gets off scot-free. The kids change their route to school, and one of this guy's country club buddies runs them over along his route.

Occam's Razor says this is not murder, but rather a case of reckless driving. That works the first time, folks. That doesn't work the second time, or when his cohorts do the same thing. The razor gets blunt from overuse.

At what point does repeated acts of negligent manslaughter become murder, especially when you can clearly establish a motive? Eventually you must abandon the liberal use of Occam's Razor and accept the Leftist conclusion that this is being done intentionally. The working class is being culled.

This is the reality of the Capitalist version of population control: it's the poor that get controlled. By intent, not accident.
