Where its due, part whatever

This digby post, unless my reading comprehension is failing me, is shockingly on-target and undeluded.
It’s an article of faith among financial elites across the planet that the welfare state is an abomination and this is a global opportunity to end it. Each culture will deal with it slightly differently --- riots in Greece, marches in France, blog posts in America. But in the end, the result, short of revolution, will be similar everywhere --- the post-war welfare state will be weakened or destroyed. The left is barely relevant anywhere anymore and they simply do not fear any kind of serious populist uprising.

By the way, Ethan, how are you doing? It's been a long time since I heard from you.
