Just because they are intelligent, doesn't mean they aren't stupid. Just
because they are consistent in their loyalty to capitalism, doesn't mean
they aren't unprincipled.
Just because he's conservative doesn't mean he isn't spineless.
He is, and they are, all those things. Their, the bourgeoisie's,
intelligence is a marketing mechanism. Their stupidity is their
intelligence in that both are based on a disavowal of history, and of the
reality of the society they create.
Look at how quickly the "free market" investment bankers ran for the cover
of the public treasury when their investing long ran into their borrowing
short. Does that make them liberals, spineless, conservatives, courageous,
It makes them the bourgeoisie, doing anything and everything to preserve
And that, being the bourgeoisie, makes types like Bernie Madoff and types
like Warren Buffett two peas in the same pod, no matter how much Warren may
wish it weren't so.
