4. Well that's the thing, isn't it

Neoliberal economic policies have lead to these crashes worldwide without fail since 1973. And how many so-called conservatives lost their jobs and homes and everything else along with the rest of us in the Great Recession? You can't persuade these people that the economic policies they support are detrimental to them, because all they see is that society's poor and needy no longer get any help from them, and that makes them warm and fuzzy all over. How dare a homeless person be fed by some small percentage of everyone's income? Let the unfortunate among us starve for a while and they will learn to be self-sufficient. That is the core philosophy of Libertarianism. And never forget that the deluded middle-class supporters of this fuck-you economic program fervently believe that they will someday get a piece of that glorious wealth pie, if only they stay the course.
