Repetition seems a necessity

Richard at American Leftist notes that there is one set of rules for the elites and another set of rules for the rest of us. Favorite quote:
Raises and bonuses for them, austerity for us.
By the way, that is precisely how neoliberalism works - we get to be on the receiving end of "structural readjustments" as the representatives of the ruling class crack jokes.

We won't go starving without a fight of course, as events in Europe demonstrate. Heck, we're even finding revivals of workers' strikes in places across the globe where such activity had been largely dormant. There is plenty of opportunity for a new left to emerge - although I can imagine the uphill climb ahead of us here in the US, given the national Zeitgeist.
