I’ve written before on the extreme social dangers that come about from excessive concentrations of wealth in the hands of a few. A very important series of articles by Robert and Pamela Bunker in Small Wars Journal has taken this idea one step further: they have identified the current vast income disparities as a form of insurgency warfare. This is a very significant step, and one that is supported by the facts. This condition–in all its forms–they call the plutocratic insurgency. This podcast discusses some of their conclusions, and asks readers to ponder the implications of this insidious form of warfare on the social health of Western nations.
