Yes, you must be a bum, a scum, a worthless nobody and perhaps a drug addict with a felonious heart ready to rob, rape and rampage throughout society if you are not one of the worthy people.
If you are not at least a millionaire or better you have proven yourself to be a failure and social Darwinism declares you are an abject failure. Perhaps worthy of dying and not being a burden upon your betters.
Even if you have “played by the rules” your entire life if you have not attained a position at the upper levels of the social-economic hierarchy that is proof to at least some folks that you are a failure, a loser, scum, filth or whatever word best describes what you are in the minds of too many wonderful folks in the USA.
However, some of those folks with those beliefs are the products of the most effective indoctrination systems ever created.
Consider the many folks crying out in anguish at those horrid working-class labor unions that combines the power of the group into a mutually beneficial whole.
Sure, there have been abuses and criminal conduct within some of the union’s ranks but was those negatives bad enough to negate the positives of folks working together for mutual benefit?
How about the other end of the spectrum… monolithic corporations amassing the power of a multitude of people with enormous wealth and often immense influence upon governments? How can an individual ever compete against THAT “union”? Where is the constant demonizing of corporations by the propaganda machines as has been done with the unions?
Folks, class warfare is real. The evidence bombards us constantly. And the “hearts and minds” of the masses have been controlled by the few for their benefit since the beginning of time.
Technology has assisted the few in their ceaseless lust for power and wealth.
I do see a minute glimmer of possible change of thoughts and attitudes within a small but growing number of us commoners, the serfs of society, the dregs who have been indoctrinated for so long that if we do not achieve the lofty economic levels of the folks filling the ranks of the upper levels of the hierarchy we are losers.
