Not reading or acknowledging doesn't make things go away - it doesn't change facts either. This is from 2010- I've posted it before, and as before I doubt anyone will read it- it's more than 10 words and lord knows the group think crowd (R and D) wants ro be told what's in it- by someone who didn't read it

America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution




Today's ruling class, from Boston to San Diego, was formed by an educational system that exposed them to the same ideas and gave them remarkably uniform guidance, as well as tastes and habits. These amount to a social canon of judgments about good and evil, complete with secular sacred history, sins (against minorities and the environment), and saints. Using the right words and avoiding the wrong ones when referring to such matters -- speaking the "in" language -- serves as a badge of identity. Regardless of what business or profession they are in, their road up included government channels and government money because, as government has grown, its boundary with the rest of American life has become indistinct. Many began their careers in government and leveraged their way into the private sector. Some, e.g., Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, never held a non-government job. Hence whether formally in government, out of it, or halfway, America's ruling class speaks the language and has the tastes, habits, and tools of bureaucrats. It rules uneasily over the majority of Americans not oriented to government.

It's sad when mentally defective trolls are reduced to begging for attention.
