Example text

In every other reassignment of social ownership, there was a shift from one minority group to another, essentially preserving the class alignment within society. This quiet revolution, however, nullified all the previous economic wisdom. In America, the percentage of the national wealth owned by the top one-half percent of families had dropped to its lowest level ever, about 14 percent in 1978, from over 30 percent in 1930. The temporary change of course brought by the Reagan administration after 1981, as a conservative backlash against the loss of economic power by the upper classes, served only to postpone for a decade or so the full-scale historical process of the socialization of the American economy.

The Social Market ‹ 35‹ competition, inscribed on the frontispieces of their headquarters, were, in fact, a cover-up for backdoor compromising socialistic arrangements: military subsidies – Boeing, Lockheed, McDonnell Douglas, IBM; direct subsidies – Sun Microsystems, Silicon Graphics; outright bailouts – Chrysler; trade protectionism.

In 1990s America, a stand against socialized institutions is an object of mockery for New York Times' columnists.
