Agelbert RANT :

The favored Orwellian phrase that Social Darwinists use to disguise their mens rea modus operandi
“Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.” 

While the above quip is of occasional accuracy, it seldom applies to Social Darwinists, no matter what wing of the American Duopoly, and the behavior they elicit.

In fact, this Orwellain phrase was itself cleverly formulated with the malice aforethought goal of wide dissemination through frequent repetition. That purpose is to keep observant humans from following the advice that experience teaches all of us to wisely heed:

“Never attribute to stupidity that which is adequately explained by malice.”

For those who may find the above to be merely a "conspiracy theory" that "violates" Occam's razor, let me make it clearer to you.

You are all familar with the phrase, "Follow the Money". Nobody calls that "conspiracy theorist" methodology. Everybody agrees that it is a rational course of action.

How would you respond if you were told, over and over that, "Following the money is for envious fools who see crime where there are only riches that resulted from hard work and great skill"?

How about this one?: "Where there is smoke, assuming there is a fire is for irrational nervous nellies."?

What about these three iterations of Capitalist (i.e Social Darwinist) happy talk?:
1. Behind every great fortune lies a great mind.
2. Every great fortune begins with a job creator with a great idea.
3. At the root of every great fortune there was a gifted individual.

Knowledgeable individuals may have noticed the above seem slightly, to put it mildly, inaccurate.

Here are the more correct versions of the above:
1. Behind every great fortune lies a great crime.
2. Every great fortune begins with a crime.
3. At the root of every great fortune there was a crime.

The above three are all popular versions of this one that you have all heard: "Behind every great fortune there is a crime."—Balzac
Although Balzac didn't actually say the above, that's what most of us have read. Most intelligent and observant people accept that as mostly, if not always, true.

IOW, when crime is involved, the default reason is mens rea, not stupidity. That is the wisdom that the Social Darwinists scheme to try to remove from human consciouness though Orwellian phrases.

Here's what Balzac actually said:
Here is the original in French from a serialization of “Le Père Goriot” published in “Revue de Paris” in 1834: "Le secret des grandes fortunes sans cause apparente est un crime oublié, parce qu’il a été proprement fait."
English translation published in the year 1900:
"The secret of a great fortune made without apparent cause is soon forgotten, if the crime is committed in a respectable way."

Balzac saw through the facade of "civilized" Capitalism. He exposed the criminal depravity of the rich, not just in pointing out the mens rea behind fortune building, but in their deliberate corruption of the fundamental values of society (i.e. "rich equals respectable").

The fact is that the the term "Rich equals Respectable" is, in additon to being an oxymoron, Orwellian.

The purpose of falsely equating riches with respectability is to eliminate morallity, the true measure of respectability, from public consciousness.
   
What I want to communicate to you is that the work of the   mens rea crowd cursing humanity is to convince you that, not only are their in-our-faces crimes, "not crimes", but their (despicably immoral) behavior is "respectable" behavior that we should all "admire and wish to emulate".

FAR more often than not, Rich equals Unrespectable.

They are not stupid; they are evil.


“Never attribute to stupidity that which is adequately explained by malice.”  
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
