Calculated Suffering as a Governing Strategy

http://www.salon.com/2015/09/30/10_ways_monopoly_airlines_are_actively_trying_to_make_your_life_miserable_partner/

This long article is about how airlines make the flying experience so miserable that people will pay exorbitant fees to escape said misery. Never mind that these services are ones that in the near too distant past were free.

It seems to me that this calculated suffering model is one adopted by the baggers to inflict misery upon society. Make government so dysfunctional that those who can pay, will pay to escape the misery. Toll roads, private fire departments, private security firms guarding protecting gated communities, private schools, universities with tuitions so great people become indentured to attend, the list is endless.

The baggers shutting down the government is one of the best examples of calculated suffering as a political strategy.

1. Well could be. There's enough crazy anymore that many things once implausible now

seem plausible. We're living through some pretty strange times.
