      The boomers are finishing their long work life. The country is damned lucky to have us to fill in for the absent twenty somethings in the work force. With few skills and even less ambition the twenty somethings will be replaced by fast machines and may spend most of their lives in tents and bread lines.
      Some abortive jag to the left will not change this dismal demographic. Zizek might like a european socialist model but how does he avoid fuck ups like Greece and Italy and Spain and Ireland. Work forces that spend great amounts of time on vacation are not competative and run up huge defecits. I think we have a chance as we get rid of Bush`s wars and redistribute the war economy. We`re just paying the interest now but our machines are beginning to chern out products and we can and will pay down our debts. The smaller generations behind the boomers will be hard pressed to keep up production but modernasation will fill in the holes. Socialist idealism will play a small role in all of this. The under employed twenty somethings will live with less and be the new white mans burden. I think if we cut off enemployment now we would face armed rebellion. So do we feed them or fight them. I say feed them and like Rome provide mass entertainment and spectacles for them. For christ sake do not let them become ghettoized and begin breeding out of comtrol. it is control that needs to be maintained and democratic facades can be used where they work. The first half of this new century may be more sparse than the last but if we keep the population in check a new prosperity could replace the present scarcity. We will pay off our defecits and the democracy will fight out the money issues. Printing money a la Europe is only a short term answer. The extremists on both left and right will not have their way because they have no solutions. We will work and pay our way out of this global mess or we will fall into anarchy. These little movements are not the future they are symptoms ,just symptoms. Bill
