That is, the Ponzi scheme that is Empire would not function were it not for an infinitely LARGER cohort of self-serving, venal, "investor-participants"--We, the Sheeple--hoping against hope to be the next "big winner!" in the casino-capitalism carrot-on-a-stick known as "the American Dream."

There is no "nation" because there is no "community." There is only, "where's MY piece of the action." A "nation/community" implies a more stable--less volatile--social, political, and economic environment. That is why a relatively few DC/WallStreet satraps can quite readily--and opportunistically--manipulate what is essentially a now careening financial grab bag posing as a nation.

"Me. Me. Me. Me. Me. Me. Me. Me. Me. Me..."

Once again-- the argument as stated by Charles--and, to a lesser degree, Scott--is that the ills which have befallen us are owing to a cohort of venal, self-serving, money-obsessed Ivy-League inebriates, i.e., drunk on Power. What is being proffered here--by way of "remedy"--however, is more of the 233-year old Ponzi scheme that is Empire: the lure--the seduction-- of "sound investment."
That "remedy" is merely putting more fuel on the G-Sax fire.

That is, the Ponzi scheme that is Empire would not function were it not for an infinitely LARGER cohort of self-serving, venal, "investor-participants"--We, the Sheeple--hoping against hope to be the next "big winner!" in the casino-capitalism carrot-on-a-stick known as "the American Dream."

Charles and Scott: the System, is utterly and ineffably CORRUPT, i.e., it cannot be "rehabilitated"--nor can we be "rescued"--not by "sound" investment, nor by "sound"-er investment. We do not need any more casino "investors"--we need participants in a participatory democracy.

Madoff is a master thief, we are petty thieves

Empire: through a glass, darkly
