  •  You have to think in terms of multiple windows. (5+ / 0-)

    The system of rule by the 1% can accommodate social liberalism if it has to; homophobia, sexism, racism, all that ugly stuff, are useful tools of control, but hardly the only weapons ones in the arsenal of oligarchy.

    It's true that socially the window is moving left, and will continue to during Mr. Obama's second term.

    What the oligarchy absolutely cannot tolerate is economic justice. On that front, the 1% is barely being challenged at all. As the chasm between haves and have-nots--in America and worldwide--widens, as organized labor withers, the economic window moves ever-rightward...

    towards the true end-game of the 1%: Neo-Feudalism.
