  6. Hmnn…How can a definition (which is all that “wealth” amounts to) be pathological? Human nature’s reaction to wealth on the other hand, can be exactly that, seems to me. But blame that on the people, not the wealth…

  13. In Naomi Klein’s excellent film follow-up to Shock Doctrine she runs down the whole horrible Milton Friedman experiments & their epic failure. It’s an ideology that depends on the plutarchic bell curve based on vast pillage of resources & lives, and now of capital itself.

    Weird, just don’t get the allure/addiction of prospering beyond all reason, and especially at the expense of everyone & everything else. (But then I don’t get most things people seem to thrill to, like Nascar, war, video games, Vegas…).
