    It's cold now but may become hot later.

    Who will be the 1%'s Gorbachev?
    Who will be it's Stalin.

    •  No more Stalin's? (13+ / 0-)

      Perhaps 'the theory and implementation of oligarchical collectivism'. is too big not to fail. Top heavy built of card's structures do fall especially when the base that supports them withdraws consent. This lot has gone to far, and is too arrogant for people globally to not withdraw consent. I also think that  people have access to information the have the tools to organizes and learn. It really is hard to kill an idea.  

      They have underestimated the human spirit and resourcefulness, which is one reason that Occupy has grown. While there are swath's of obedient, frightened, ignorant people for the most part people are just not this stupid. They understand self evident truths.  

         

    •  funny that you ask that (0+ / 0-)

      Since Gingrich's reappearance as a front-runner for the GOP nomination, I have been ruminating that he is a possible American Stalin, Mussolini or Milosevic.  He is a complete megalomaniac and in my opinion is by far the most dangerous of the candidates because of his monstrous ego and patient, clever amorality.  I can see him setting up a gulag.

      I still believe that this country will be the best place to be in the future, because I think big trouble is on the way everywhere.  If Gingrich is elected, though, it will be time to at least think about leaving here.
