Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I doubt that it is really their goal ... most don't have a clue what places like Haiti are really like and what it means.

Though, perhaps the right analogy is Singapore, which, in many ways, meets the right-wing ideological dream state with vast difference between wealthy and the majority of the population, and a working nation that they respect.

When I saw what the [walled, guarded,] "gated communities" in Palm Springs were like I cold hardly believe it. Yes, I think people know exactly what they want and, like you say, they think they're personally going to be among the "winners".

but yes, it really is their goal.  

Their obsession and greed are so great that the future does not signify.  

Franklin Delano Roosevelt saved capitalism for them in the 1930s:  Were they thankful?  Not at all.  They excoriated him, then and now.  The New Deal has finally been overthrown:  Now they are trying Nazism.  Will it last a thousand years?  It DID NOT, last time; it CANNOT, this time.  No matter:  Anything less than everything is not worth even thinking about.  

A death trip.  Most likely, they are even destroying themselves.  

It does not matter at all.  

The Fates are kind.
