So can a movement be too successful? I think only if its goals are wrongly directed.

I saw this and laughed a little. Just a little, though.

I have to say that I share most — if not all — the goals of the honest Left, which would be embodied in a constantly rising standard of living for the lowest economic classes.

The “Occupy Wall Street” movement is no different, and it is a real pity that all this energy and frustration can’t be put to use toward achieving their goal.

Elizabeth Warren gives a stunningly frightening explanation of what has happened to the Middle Class in America in just one generation. She lays the cards bare on the table for all to see why it is that we are under so much stress and struggling so to keep our ships afloat. You will be surprised at some of the data points she provides. Perhaps we are not consuming ourselves into debt after all. Perhaps it’s something else at the root of our problems. The first 5 1/2 minutes are devoted to introductions and can be safely skipped. But do watch it to find out what is really going on.
