t's a national meeting on the decline of the middle class and rise of oligarchy.

By April M. Short / AlterNet March 18, 2018, 3:36 PM GMT


"Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Michael Moore have released a video inviting the entire nation to tune into a live town hall meeting on wealth and income inequality on Monday, March 19 at 7pm EST.

At the town hall, the three will lead a discussion on the "decline of the middle class and rise of oligarchy."

"We live in the wealthiest country in the history of world and yet the reality is that most of that wealth is controlled by a tiny little fraction at the top while tens of millions of people live in poverty," Warren says in the video.

The online town hall meeting will discuss the shameful divide that concentrates our nation's wealth at the top of the ladder, in the hands of a small group of billionaires who make up just 1 percent of the population.

The town hall will be streamed live on Bernie Sanders' Facebook page; Moore, Warren and Sanders' websites; and the websites of Now This News, Guardian, Act.tv, and The Young Turks.

Watch the invitation video below and tune into the live video meeting tomorrow evening at 7pm...(6 pm central)..."

Hipster Millennials Aren't Saving For Retirement Because Capitalism 'Won't Exist By Then'

"I do see it as a real possibility that nuclear holocaust or environmental apocalypse will make money completely meaningless."

https://www.dailywire.com/news/28421/hipster-millennials-arent-saving-retirement-emily-zanotti

Some millennials aren't saving for retirement in the hopes that by the time they reach age 65, Capitalism will be a thing of the past.

In an incredible article on Salon, a full two-thirds of millennials admit that they haven't started a savings account for their golden years. But, perhaps more shocking, a significant group of millennials seem to believe they don't need to, because by the time they're old enough to stop working, America will have become a Socialist Workers paradise which will no longer require them to meet financial obligations.

"When I'm at retirement age, around 2050, I think it's possible we will have seen a breakdown in modern society," one millennial told Salon, suggesting that "capitalism" will have morphed into a "complete Plutocracy" by then, even though what the United States has now is not actually pure "capitalism."

Another had an even wilder idea. “Capitalism might still exist [in 2050], but I don’t expect people will be happy about it," he said. "[M]y ideal economic model is one where all basic necessities are abundant and free, everyone works a few hours a week at the necessary chores of society like garbage collection and machine maintenance, then has the rest of their lives free to pursue whatever projects—be they art, leisure, or industry—that they desire.”

Literally, his ideal situation is one in which people don't actually provide any means of financial support to the state. It may come as no surprise that of the three millennials Salon spoke to, none have a real job. One is a musician, one is an artisan chocolatier, and the third is a political consultant.

Another, a "student activist," has already gambled wrong. “Not only am I not saving for retirement, I have never had a serious job because I have thought capitalism would be f**ked since I was a teenager."

Others are banking on a "nuclear holocaust," or an "environmental apocalypse" that will render money meaningless — two things that don't seem like likely possibilities.

Good luck!

This thread is a joke! (It is a joke, right?)

Sanders - +1 million net worth (plus side deals for his spouse)
Elizabeth Warren +/- $8 million, multi-million $ house, earns about $700K annually
Michael Moore - About $50 Million net worth

BTW that puts all of these hypocrites in the top 1%

I like Elizabeth Warren. Don't know Derrick Hamilton.

The other two can go pound sand.

I'd take any one of them over the clueless 1% goon squad in our White House right now.

HONK! Get the hook!

I didn't know who Derrick Hamilton is either--then I realized I was hooked up to the greatest engine to fight ignorance ever devised and googled his name.

I found out that it's Darrick Hamilton and he's got a Ph.D. in Economics and is Professor of Econ and Urban Policy at the New School.

Secondly, I'm not sure that either Michael Moore or Bernie Sanders deserve sand pounding. They're both on to something: too much inequality is socially destructive and Goliath corporations are the enemies of Democracy.

Laissez faire capitalism and democracy are incompatible.

Any 1 of them is worth 10 of the 1% Russian cockmuncher in our White House.

I don't know about that but I DO know I'd pay good money to watch Michael Moore and Donald Trump mud wrestle for the title.



Now, try to get that image out of your head! ACK!

So let me understand hypocrisy. Folks who work for a fair tax code which gives tax breaks to average Americans and not the 1% are now hypocrites. Too funny. The 1% controls the country and you point out that one's income designates your status......well then how does one percent control the other 99 percent? Hypocrisy? geez, how many times does someone have to fall off the turnip truck before they have a clue.

No argument there. I'd take a lawn chair, a turnip, a decorative ashtray, or a half-witted armadillo over what's in the White House now.

Bernie and Michael Moore are good at spotting problems, but I'm less convinced they actually have realistic, workable ideas what to do about them. That's why I haven't been big fans. Plus, Michael Moore's arguments tend to be dumb and embarrassing... I get tired of having to carry that guy when I'm duking it out with Republicans, because he's a lousy example of what's on our side. All he ever does is say "Shame on you!" over and over again, like a scold. It's ineffective. His ideas are okay, but not everyone sharing (most of) my views is necessarily an asset...

I thought MM's TV show was funny and his Roger & Me film did warn us that big business doesn't give shit or shineola about the little guy or real Americans. I also agree with him calling Bloatard the Godfather of fake news. I'm okay with Bernie but I would no more support him in 2020 than I would Hillary.
