America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution

August 9, 2010


The ruling class taking its cues from a single Leftist/Statist orthodoxy absorbed at Harvard, Princeton and the rest. Whatever happened to those selfish Republican/Capitalist plutocrats? Nothing, except now they’re mostly Democrats, they’ve got THEIR money sheltered [and their consciences cleared] while the rest of us get taxed to death, paying for their Good Works.

  2. […] “Camelot” has never existed except as a Broadway musical. “One brief shining moment that was known as…” Just one of those catchy, romantic bits of idealistic whimsy that hit home at the time of JFK’s murder, reputedly concocted by none other than Jackie herself with the slavish collusion of Kennedy sycophant Teddy White. The Kennedys were a Hollywood version of patrician Progressivism still lapped up by  modern Democrats. It’s an inexplicable longing for serfdom, a craving for the care & approval of those golden-hearted rich people who live in the big house on the hill, summoned by God to the higher purpose of Taking Care Of Us Little Folk, our kindly, more powerful Big Brothers and Sisters. When powerful, rich and influential enough themselves such as in present-day Hollywood and in the multinational corporate world, today’s Liberal Democrats happily, greedily join the ranks of the annointed Ruling Class.

    […] Some of us think rough bedrock beats smooth BS, particularly when making our political choices.

    […] How else to explain the  apocalyptic ravings of those famous multi-millionaire “activists,” desperate to be “relevant,” fancying themselves the grandiosely heroic Roosters of The Apocalypse when in reality, they are just tiresome, deranged Henny Pennys? One suspects many of these celebrity narcissists are simply projecting their own terror of mortality onto yet another imagined, incipient Armageddon, “global warming” and “rising rightwing fascism” being the latest fabricated excuses for “emergency measures” to be carried out by an Elite Ruling Class.
