Pigs refers to those who get too greedy...

and that includes political and business leaders who think they can create a brave new world where pigs rule and never get slaughtered. Bulls and bears refer to market players who are either bullish that markets are going up, or bearish because they believe markets are going down. In summary, bulls and bears play by a rational set of rules but pigs ignore the rules (government and market) and in the end, get slaughtered because of their greed and ignorance. Slaughter in this case is a metaphor for the pigs losing their financial and political power.

What do we do when the pigs are in charge. First of all, it's nothing new, pig profligacy led to the American and French Revolutions and it will happen again. I advocate for a non-violent revolution modeled after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who put his life on the line educating and motivating people to stand up for their rights. It's never easy and there's no guarantee of success, but the evolution of rights and limited government to secure those rights, has over time, greatly improved the human condition. One example of this is all nation states have outlawed slavery based on a universally accepted notion of morality and human rights.
