voting anti capitalist

“The Fly Bottle” reports on the relationship between voting patterns and employment.

Observe: Support for the Democrats is high and rising amongst those who derive their wealth from state regulation and state imposed monopoly. Oh what a big surprise

I bet we would see the same support for the Democrats among accountants as amongst doctors and lawyers. And where the state makes it a restricted privilege to do people’s hair, a similar swing amongst hair dressers.

This fits pretty well with the standard Marxist account of people voting their self interest, though I suspect it is more complicated than that. Rather, people whose wealth and power derives from government regulation need to believe that government regulation is wholly good, so come to believe in the Democrats.

The more socialism we have, the more socialism people are apt to vote for.   The Road to Serfdom.
