You’re All Losers
6 months ago

The other day someone asked the question: when did it become so common to disparage anyone who hasn’t made it big, hasn’t gotten rich, as a “loser”?

the term “losers” has become much more common since the 1960s. And I think this word usage reflects something real — a growing contempt for the little people.

OK, I know what the answer will be: conservative policies will lead to economic growth, and that will raise all boats, the way it did in the days of Saint Ronald. Except, you know, it didn’t.

So what is the GOP agenda to help people who aren’t going to build businesses and get rich? There isn’t one — partly because they really can’t reconcile any real agenda with their overall ideology, but also because, deep in their hearts, they consider ordinary people trying hard to get by a bunch of losers.
