Don't call them austerians. That implies some sort of virtuous discipline. We are talking about a corrupt elite that wants 16 trillion for banksters and cuts in services for the peasants. They are ok with indiscriminate surveillance at $400 per month per line, they are ok with freedom bombs for Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and whoever. They only want cuts for WIC, Social Security, and Medicaid.
They want to sacrifice ordinary people for the further enrichment of the uber rich. This has nothing to do with austerity and everything to do with Aztec economics.
Words matter. Ideas matter. Every time someone uses the word austerian, we need to put Aztec economics in the comments.
