Best summary of the month: It's the philosophy, stupid

Or, more accurately, It's the stupid philosophy.

From bink, one of the notable bloggers on political economy at DailyKos:
It's easy to see villains everywhere -- banks, corporations, politicians -- because the villains aren't just people or institutions but an entire philosophy that came to pervade every aspect of public life in the West, whether it was business or government:

Let Democracy step aside and Markets will take care of the people.

Well it didn't work.

And everyone is pissed.

Problem is, the conservatives are hysterically refusing to accept the reality that their theology of greed has failed to deliver the goods.
