I think he's on to something with the series, but as he often does, I think he probably overthinks things by half. After 2008, the Masters Of The Universe classes came face to face with the fact that their gods are false, and thus their castles built on sand. There is only one way a ruling class ever reacts to that revelation, and it is how the current oligarchs are reacting today.

"If you can not bring yourself to grapple with that which literally built your capitol, then you are not truly grappling with your country. And if you are not truly grappling with your country, then your beliefs in its role in the greater world (exporter of democracy, for instance) are built on sand. Confronting the black experience means confronting the limits of America, and perhaps, humanity itself. That is the confrontation that graduates us out of the ranks of national cheerleading and into the school of hard students."
Black culture and the culture of poverty are not the same thing.

+Elizabeth Nolan Brown seems to get this one right:

I suppose the animosity shouldn't be surprising—Walmart can do no right in some eyes—but that Walmart is an affordable and accessible option for many on food stamps seems like a benefit to me, not a bug. If there is cause to be upset at here, it's the fact that so many Americans are unemployed, living in poverty, and forced to rely on food stamps in the first place. It is not the fact that a company provides them with a place to buy affordable food (no matter how much you might personally not like that company).
Last Friday, Walmart filed an annual report with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. On a list of the many factors that could hurt the company

I don't have a problem with the idea that WM offers affordable options to those on food stamps. However, one of the routes by which WM is able to offer those low prices is via a workforce that is paid so little that many of its employees have to use food stamps. And, in doing so WM forces competitors to lower prices, also leading to lower wages and more working poor using food stamps. 

So, WM is able to offer the benefit by being part of the bug.

Here's a well-worded contribution I just ran across:
"It doesn’t matter that an individual Republican may not [be racist]. If they reliably and consistently ally with others who [are], and if the result of that alliance is to persistently disadvantage one group of Americans out of proportion to the rest, then they have to answer for their party’s racism."
If there were a sane person in the Tea Party, that would be my message to him or her.

A child born in the last 0 casualties month, February 2003, would be halfway through fifth grade today.
There were no American troop casualties in Afghanistan or Iraq in March, for the first time since February 2003, ending 133 straight months when at least one U.S. service member was killed. U.S. deaths in Iraq peaked in November 2004, and in Afghanistan in August 2011

"We are so used to thinking of the capitalist market and government as the only two means of organizing economic life that we overlook the other organizing model in our midst that we depend on daily to deliver a range of goods and services that neither market nor government provides. The Commons predates both the capitalist market and representative government and is the oldest form of institutionalized, self-managed activity in the world.

The contemporary Commons is where billions of people engage in the deeply social aspects of life. It is made up of literally millions of self-managed, mostly democratically run organizations, including educational institutions, healthcare organizations, charities, religious bodies, arts and cultural groups, amateur sports clubs, producer and consumer cooperatives, credit unions, advocacy groups, and a near endless list of other formal and informal institutions that generate the social capital of society.

Currently, the social Commons is growing faster than the market economy in many countries around the world. Still, because what the social Commons creates is largely of social value, not pecuniary value, it is often dismissed by economists. "
