Deutschlands "Eliten" wollen unter sich bleiben und machen mobil gegen Hartz IV Betroffene

Die sog. Eliten und Wohlhabenden machen Front gegen Hartz IV Bezieher, dass jedenfalls behauptet der Soziologe Prof. Dr. Michael Hartmann in einem Interview in der Zeitschrift "Die Zeit". Es würde eine "Radikalisierung" der Eliten stattfinden, die immer mehr auf fruchtbaren Boden stoßen würde. "Seit Wochen läuft die Westerwelle-Debatte um angebliche Sozialschmarotzer, der Philosoph Peter Sloterdijk macht sich für die sogenannten Leistungsträger stark, die der Steuerstaat zugunsten der Unproduktiven enteigne, die als kultiviert und nachdenklich geltende DIE ZEIT malt auf ihrer ersten Seite das Schreckbild der ´Einwanderung in die Sozialsysteme´." so Hartman.

Der ehemalige Berliner Finanzsenator und heutiges Bundesbank-Vorstandsmitglied Thilo Sarrazin behauptet, Geldmangel sei nicht immer das Problem, ein Teil der Hartz IV-Bezieher würde an "Verhaltensarmut" leiden.

Anlass der neuerlichen Hartz IV-Provokationssprüche des Thilo Sarrazins war eine Diskussionsveranstaltung in Berlin. Sarrazin war neben der TAZ Redakteurin Ulrike Herrmann eingeladen, die gerade ihr neues Buch "Hurra, wir dürfen zahlen" vorstellte. Herrman zeigt in ihrem Buch auf, dass die Mittelschicht gegenüber Hartz-IV Beziehern (sog. "Unterschicht") aufgewiegelt wird, obwohl sie schon Jahrelang die steuerlichen Entlastungen der sog. Oberschicht bezahlt. Dennoch würde sich die sog. Mittelschicht zu den "Gewinnern" zählen und sich pardou von sozial Schwachen abgrenzen. Das Unwort "Sozialschmarotzer" würde für die Armen dieser Gesellschaft verwendet werden, obwohl die Reichen immer weniger Steuern zahlen müssten und defaktisch der große Anteil der Steuerlast bei der sog. Mittelschicht hängen bleibt. "Die Mittelschicht sieht sich an der Seite der Elite, weil sie meint, dass man gemeinsam von perfiden Armen ausgebeutet würde." Der Mittelschicht wirft Herrmann vor allem eins vor: den Selbstbetrug. Lesen Sie weiter:

Ein-Euro-Jobs verdrängen reguläre Arbeitsplätze

SGB II sieht die Ein-Euro-Jobs als letzte Möglichkeit „ultima ratio“ der Eingliederung von Hartz IV Beziehern vor. Allerdings haben sie in der Praxis nicht nur oberste Priorität, sondern vielfach den traurigen Rekord der Ausschließlichkeit gegenüber anderen Maßnahmen erreicht. Die betroffenen Erwerbslosen erhalten ihre Hartz-IV-Leistungen weiter. Weiter lesen:

Hamid Karzai, R.I.P.

A Prediction

By Justin Raimondo

The war in Afghanistan, which George W. Bush started and Barack Obama pledged to win, is over - and we lost. No one realizes this, quite yet, but give them time - because the fruits of our defeat are already a veritable cornucopia. And the reason can be summed up rather neatly in two words: Hamid Karzai.

Iraq: Seven Years of Occupation

Raed Jarrar, Truthout: "On April 9, 2003, exactly seven years ago, Baghdad fell under the US-led occupation. Baghdad did not fall in 21 days, though; it fell after 13 years of wars, bombings and economic sanctions. Millions of Iraqis, including myself, watched our country die slowly before our eyes in those 13 years. So, when the invasion started in March of 2003, everyone knew it was the straw that would break the camel's back."

Like so many of his peers, therapy was bypassed for “meds.” Similar to fighting in Fallujah and Ramadi, he never expected that his life would be threatened by psychiatric drugs......

A baffling defense of Bush policy

Christian Science Monitor
by Walter Rodgers

04/13/10

In April 2003, I was embedded with the US Army’s 7th Cavalry in the western suburbs of Baghdad, sleeping on top of a Humvee. Seven years later I still wonder why we were there. So, I suspect, do many Americans. What responsibility — what options — do generals have when they believe civilian leaders, the president, the vice president, and the secretary of Defense, are bent on a ‘wrongheaded’ war? I recently put that question to former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith, who served from 2001 to 2005 and was a major architect of the war in Iraq. ‘If it’s a debate over what’s the smart and right thing to do,’ he said, ‘the president is the elected representative of the American people. Somebody has to make policy for the country, and the country decides by democratic means [that] it’s going to be the president.’ His implication seemed clear. Americans elected George W. Bush, and the public must live with the consequences of its former president’s decision...

On the campaign trail, Barack Obama promised to get tough with lobbyists; ‘They will not work in my White House,’ he declared. ‘We’ve excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs.’ But Obama’s stimulus plan has created jobs for those evil lobbyists. Tom Schatz of Citizens Against Government Waste writes that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is dishing out grants for lobbying groups that want to change how Americans live. States can’t wait to get their hands on the cash. … Well, Obama did say his stimulus plan would create jobs.

The real intern scandal: Privileges for the privileged

Christian Science Monitor
by Danielle Connor

04/08/10)

During this great recession, more and more students and young people are accepting unpaid internships because there simply aren’t paying gigs available. Some employers are taking advantage of this, deceiving young people and offering shallow experiences that won’t actually help them develop professional skills. Now the Obama administration wants to crack down on these abusive practices. … Such accountability is welcome, but there’s a deeper issue at stake: the way internships today privilege the privileged. In an environment where getting a good job requires a long stint as an unpaid intern, only those with substantial savings can get ahead. So rather than act as a leveler, this great recession may end up providing a further boost to the prep-school crowd...
