Nothing like making a drama out of a crises.

One (somewhere) of the many articles I've seen on this pointed out that United ought to know that fewer travelers than formerly have flexible enough schedules to be able to handle overbooking. Time is money, and the money offered in compensation is hardly enough. That's why they could get no volunteers. This was a Sunday evening flight, probably full of people expecting to be back at work on Monday morning, and the next flight was not till mid-afternoon the next day, thus meaning they'd lose an entire day.

So, though your article's author may not realize it, the opening comparison to "You hate Mondays/You hate capitalism" is not just a comparison, it's directly relevant to the point. Probably doesn't realize it, since the end of the article is just a random litany of What's Wrong With Life Today and not about the root causes of this incident.
