36. Dave C. Johnston's book 'Free Lunch' has a ton of good info on

the zillion ways our tax-dollars go to subsidize the 1%ers' biz ventures, while they don't deign to pay their taxes.

I don't disagree with nationalization, as long as it isn't the 'national socialization' form, which only benefitted Krupp, IG Farben, Deutsche Bank, Siemens, etc. There isn't a road map to non-nazi nationalization from here, that I can see. We had the perfect justification for nationalizing the banks after '08, and it didn't happen. Progressives are more in the 'mobilization' phase, rather than the 'nationalization' phase.
