In One Eye

Molly Ivins' lastest piece has to do with how FDR ("I don't want to see a single war millionaire created in the United States as a result of this world disaster.") must be spinning in his grave.

This relates in a way to Marshall's piece cited a few blogs ago: How can we hope for a demonstration of morality from a group that is clearly amoral?

Call them oligarchs. Call them plutocrats. I do. The names themselves imply a lack of ethics.

Trying to advance a moral argument vis-à-vis these guys is clearly impossible as they just don't, won't, can't respond to that kind of thinking or feeling.
