43. Bee, I honestly didn't mean to offend.

Disagreeing about 'perspective' and another individual's perceptions, doesn't make me feel offended or want to offend you, or Fawke.

All I can offer is my perception, subjective not objective, phenominal not noumenal.

Where F and you say to empire and 1%ers 'Try it again, wacko. We'll beat you again.', I'm 100% with you. 99% anyhow.

Where H points out that the 1% is causing austerity problems by being in the driver's seat - and that they are using austerity to 'try it again' (with a new nazi initiative), because they're wackos, I agree. It's just a warning of how they're trying to step on the gas, which doesn't say they'll win THIS time around either.

All those 1%er empires fell. French Royalty, German fascists, Roman Ceasars, even Greeks under Alexander of Macedonia. The O.P. warning doesn't pre-clude another sucessful resolution.

I don't think 'Nazis. Oh, I'm so scared. Might as well give up. We always lose.' But I do like to get a warning that the 1% is trying to use nazis again, to further consolidate power. Their current power level is shown by their success in enacting austerity measures, so they're the guy with the most toys who didn't die yet. And they are trying to use the backlash vs. austerity to drive a new nazi push, to get more toys. If the nazis anywhere had their 10%, they'd be driving their tanks down the street. They don't, so H is free to warn that they are trying it, and you are free to tell them they're crazy losers who will be crushed again if they 'bring it on'.

My perspective is that they are trying it again because they are aware of the destabilizing socio-political effects that global climatic change is causing. The system that gives them the most toys is causing both ecosystem and civil destabilization, which threaten their grip on their system and their toys. So they're trying to tighten their grip thru totalitarianism. Doesn't mean they'll win.
