The more things change...

Is it just me, or would the Koch brothers have fit in really well in 1930's Germany? Let's see, break the unions? Check. A handful of super rich industrialists? Check. A small managerial class? Working on it. An inexhaustible pool of scared, desperate people, willing to work for less, with few benefits, and little chance for advancement? Check, check, and check. Throw in fear of the 'other' and a homicidal anger toward the weak and 'deviant', add a handy scapegoat or two and mix well...all to a soundtrack of Richard Wagner's greatest hits.
