21. Agree with your post, but there hasn't even been a recovery from the last crash for most.

If by "next crash" you mean another huge leg down for most of us, then yes I agree. That will undoubtedly happen too.

TPTB just continue to grind us down (i.e. 99%) year after year, and that will NO DOUBT continue until more of us wake up and make the Democratic Party embrace progressive politics again. To do that, the Third Way/DLC/New Democrats have to be exposed and KICKED OUT of the Party. Right now, they are in firm control, and the Senate is where they have things locked up right now. I can't believe how many Democratic Senators currently embrace Third Way policies.

A SUSTAINED movement will be needed to clean things up, and that will mean primaries. Otherwise, we're just going to continue our current economic trends (upward redistribution of wealth/income to the 1% from the 99%).

Above all, we will have to break the corporate media hold that has brainwashed so many Americans. If Americans don't even know what's happened and what NEEDS to happen, then I have no hope things will improve. Currently, I have no hope, but I have hope that one day in the future Americans will know what's needed (i.e. PROGRESSIVE politicians) and we will turn things around.
