Trumpism and Modern American Feudalism



I found this conversation with Sam Vaknin very enlightening. He believes that there are only two economic systems in the world: Capitalism and Feudalism.

Vaknin says that Capitalism always deteriorates into some form of Feudalism as did Communist Russia, Nazi Germany and the
present day US.
Feudalism is defined by
*Enormous income inequality- 100 of the richest Americans own 50% of The World's wealth.
*Lack of upward mobility for the working class.
*Politics and the economy are controlled by Family Dynasties and there is glorification of those dynasties. IE" the Royals" and the
Trump family imitation of "The Royals"
* There is absence of inflation because prices are set by the elites.
* There is lack of geographical mobility.
* Anti-Globalization and anti Global trade sentiment is strong. IE: immigration policies, trade sanctions.
* Lack of rebellion by citizens, because people prefer safety and security to economic and social opportunity.

Does this speech sound familiar (TDS)



Same old DoubleSpeak, new year.

Unidentified Furry Animal Problem

Just laughing over mahatmakanejeeves post from Craiglist about a woman who mistook a Bobcat for a domestic cat. It seriously ages me but it made me remember this request from A-Schwarzenegger for help identifying a new pet he inherited.
Brought to you from the DU WayBack Machine:

28. It lets you pet him
but it makes this sound that sounds like
a combination of growling and purring and
a upset stomach so your never quite sure.
It's fur feels like the end of a old broom
and runs in different directions and different
lengths so your hand gets tangled in it. To be
honest I wear miner's gloves when petting it. It
watches your hand with its eyes wide and dilated
and its mouth open. But it seems to like it. Its
breath is like that water in a vase when the flowers
go bad. I don't think my uncle must of petted it much.
It brought home a old bucket it found and keeps nosing
it down the stairs and then gets it and brings it back up
and noses it down the stairs again. My neighbors are
watching it through their blinds.
