Tim Donovan at Alternet writes Today's wealthy are far more likely to have inherited their fortunes. Here's why that's going to doom our politics:
Prevailing neoliberal ideology, which perverts capitalism as an economic system into capitalism as an unyielding political ideology, lurks in the shadows of almost every major issue in America, though nowhere is its influence more obvious or profound than in the spiraling rise of income and wealth inequality today.
When Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the 21st Century” was first released in English, it followed the Culture War Playbook to perfection: First came the triumphant plaudits from like-minded thinkers, followed shortly by the hasty rebuttals of their ideological opponents, followed themselves by a torrent of commentary from pundits left and right who skimmed the book before adding their own two cents.
There's been a lot of musical talent coming out of Australia in recent years, especially from Perth and Melbourne. It's good to see this kind of trend coming from a country that has been largely underrepresented in the music industry. These guys deserve every last bit of attention they get, too, aside from their work ethic that has kept them together for almost two decades, the members of Karnivool are world-class musicians.
Never mind that Bill O'Reilly said earlier this month that calls from the half-term quitta' from Wasilla for President Obama to be impeached was a really dumb idea, he still wanted the "polling people" at Faux "news" to run it past "the folks" anyway, just to see what they think.
