"In the face of this slow destruction of the urban poor, liberals have only one question: can’t we have fried chicken and cupcakes, too?"
When I want to examine the limits of liberal ideology, I look for class struggle; when I want to find some class struggle, I simply step outside my door. You don't have to live in Washington, DC, like I do, but it helps. Like a lot of cities, Washington is really two cities in the same space.

"'We have found it impossible to give our support to conventional sexual morality or to approve highly of the means by which society attempts to arrange the practical problems of sexuality in life. We can demonstrate with ease that what the world calls its code of morals demand more sacrifices than it is worth.'

Independent Lens | Park Avenue: Money, Power & the American Dream | Clip | PBS
Alex Gibney doesn’t do much with his initial premise in “Park Avenue: Money, Power & the American Dream,” but he certainly accomplishes one thing: If you were still on the fence about whether to despise the superrich, this film will almost surely make a hater out of you.
“Park Avenue,” the Alex Gibney documentary on PBS, focuses on how the superrich ensure that they will stay that way by manipulating the political process.
