It is the elites and the wannabe elites, the temporarily embarrassed millionaires against everyone else. If you are poor, you must have done something to deserve it. If you're rich, you should be a shining example of American success and pulling yourself up by your boot straps even if the only way you came into that money is by inheritance, or letting someone cum in you.
Class warfare, divide and conquer. When you're outnumbered 99 to 1, your only chance of surviving is by pitting your enemy against each other. For a long time, this was successful in America. It worked in France as well, for awhile. Eventually, people saw past the farce despite the media saying "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain". Eventually, people lost their heads, literally.
It is the 1% against the rest of us, whether you consider yourself a temporarily embarrassed millionaire or a member of the working class. Whether you choose to believe it or not, there is class warfare going on. It is being waged by the rich who get the media to convince the shrinking middle class that the working class and the poor are to blame for their situation. Never mind the fact that the rich are constantly asking for more and more tax cuts which are already at their lowest point in history, or that the whole idea of "trickle-down" economics is being used over and over again to justify these cuts, even though they've been shown to be bullshit.
They want to cut the safety nets of Social Security, Medicare and other social programs, why? Because without a safety net, people become more desperate. They'll vote to repeal minimum wage if it means they can eat from the Dollar Menu even if it means working for 2 dollars an hour, 80 hours a week. It means that companies like Walmart can employ us as cashiers 30 years from now because there's no retirement options left for those of us who couldn't save $500 dollars from every paycheck to go into a 401k plan managed by shysters who made millions by making risky bets with our savings.
It means we will be more willing overturn labor and safety laws if it means the difference between starvation or not. The line in the sand has been drawn, which side are you on?
