Thoughtcrime - 31 Jan 2013

In a political sense, I no longer fear the obtuse, headstrong robber barons, who do as much to antagonize the lower classes - opening them up to organization and activism - as they do to oppress them.  Given the tools available to activists today, the backlash against the brutal austerity policies these blood-sucking leeches apply is likely to be strong enough to at least put the fear of the people back in politicians' hearts.

What I do fear are the wolves in sheep's clothing - the smooth-talking, charismatic 'populists' who are just as sinister (if not more) as anyone, yet understand the mentality of those who want to change the world for the better, and can effectively bottle that energy up into token reform which placates the masses while preserving the status quo.
