Charles G. Koch: Why Koch Industries Is Speaking Out - WSJ.com

Charles G. Koch: Why Koch Industries Is Speaking Out - WSJ.com

Claptrap and humbuggery. Why is it that these radical Conservative blowhards are always so interested in efficient markets, but have no interest whatsoever in the people that are supposedly to be served by these markets? What good are the jobs provided by unfettered predatory capitalism when the result is low wages, unattainable health insurance, poor education, and economic insecurity? Sure, it'll be wonderful for the bottom lines of these companies, whose influence and contributions to political candidates assures them full access to the levers of power.

The utopian ravings of Koch and his ilk make for great sloganeering and false economic success. The point and purpose of a humane and humanitarian society and economy is to protect the rights of it's members, and promote their well being also. It is not, in any way, shape, or form, predicated on the unending accrual of wealth by a privileged few, at the expense of the remaining ninety-eight percent.
