We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The New Deal was a genuine revolution, whose deepest purpose was not simply reform within existing traditions, but a basic change in the social, and, above all, the power relationships within the nation. It was not a revolution by violence. It was a revolution by bookkeeping and lawmaking. In so far as it was successful, the power of politics had replaced the power of business. This is the basic power shift of all the revolutions of our time. This shift was the revolution.
And to the earnest and somewhat credulous folks, this was a feature and not a bug. Many genuinely think that business is bad and manipulative of people's lives, and yearn for political power to redress what they see as injustices.
Alas, just as business is a fine tool for its purposes within the economic development of society, it has some inevitable consequences that may not always be positive to all citizens. The same is true of government and politics as a countervailing force to business.
The true believers just know that with the right people in charge, the destructive effects of government and politics can be eliminated. Since they really don't understand economic forces that well, they assume business will always be the evil oppressor that cannot be mitigated.
