If our political discourse and the macinery of government are so hell-bent on increasing the disparity between the rich and the poor, to the point of being dysfunctional, what do we do next? The wealthy and powerful cannot be trusted to see further than the next quarter's earnings report. The do not function in a sustainable manner; they shit where they eat. This is self-destructive behavior.
Perhaps we should focus on destroying the two-party system. An "alternative vote" scheme, such as the one recently rejected by the British, might be better. Could hardly be worse.
