US Republic If I am understanding what you were saying in your most recent (4th total) comment, and I'm not sure that I am, you are frustrated at the amount of power the wealthy elite, ie. bankers/the CIA, have over the average American in this country and agree with that. Although I am more concerned with the power that the ultra-wealty in the private sector have, ie. corporate executives paying large sums of money to influence elections, I understand the fear that powerful people might use said power to limit the rights of individuals. The difference, I think, is that I see AOC and her ideas for legislation as a way to protect the rights of the disenfranchised from those who would ignore them for the sake of gaining more power whereas you seem to see the real threat as the government using 'fake issues' to gain more power for themselves. I suppose that it all comes down to whether you trust the government or the corporations more. Me personally, I'll stick with the thing that the people have the power to change.

Sean McElroy And as for your second comment (third of you count the original response), the idea that it is ideal to be morally right is also the basis of Confucianism. To me, the system of ethics a particular elected official subscribes to takes a back seat to the policies they advocate for as any number of forms of ethics can make an argument supporting or rejecting a given idea. Really so long as I can trust that a politician will do what I feel is right, I don't much care about their personal justifications for it.

I heard this again recently - loved it but had the following thought. The 70s were famous for highish inflation and high unemployment- stagflation. How does that work with the theory?

If you're looking for a podcast that'll put more money in your pocket, while you're still on this planet, then I heard the Millionaire Interviews podcast has a lot of sweet guests sharing their entrepreneurial journey... 😱

I ask for peace and good things; no one notices. I work for peace and good things; no one notices. I make a move out of dissatisfaction, fatigue, confusion, and suddenly someone's a psychopathologist with a perfect encapsulation of my behavior and absolute potential.
