Social engineers vs. the USA: Seminal essay captures an America at swords point between arrogant, imperious ruling class, and everyone else

From:
A Splendid Essay on the Two Great Classes in Contemporary America
(Independent Institute) -- by Robert Higgs --

Angelo M. Codevilla, professor emeritus of international relations at Boston University, has written an extraordinary essay for the July/August issue of The American Spectator. It’s called “America’s Ruling Class – And the Perils of Revolution,” but it deals much more extensively with the anatomy and functioning of the class system in the United States today than with the prospect of revolution.

Codevilla cuts immediately to the core: the United States today is divided into (a) a ruling class, which dominates the government at every level, the schools and universities, the mainstream media, Hollywood, and a great deal else, and (b) all of the rest of us, a heterogeneous agglomeration that Codevilla dubs the country class. The ruling class holds the lion’s share of the institutional power, but the country class encompasses perhaps two-thirds of the people.

Members of the two classes do not like one another. In particular, the ruling class views the rest of the population as composed of ignoramuses who are vicious, violent, racist, religious, irrational, unscientific, backward, generally ill-behaved, and incapable of living well without constant, detailed direction by our betters; and it views itself as perfectly qualified and entitled to pound us into better shape by the generous application of laws, taxes, subsidies, regulations, and unceasing declarations of its dedication to bringing the country—and indeed the entire world—out of its present darkness and into the light of the Brave New World it is busily engineering.

This class divide has little to do with rich versus poor or Democrat versus Republican. At its core, it has to do with the division between, on the one hand, those whose attitudes are attuned to the views endorsed by the ruling class (especially “political correctness”) and whose fortunes are linked directly or indirectly with government programs and, on the other hand, those whose outlooks and interests derive from and focus on private affairs, especially the traditional family, religion, and genuine private enterprise. Above all, as Codevilla makes plain, “for our ruling class, identity always trumps.” These people know they are superior in every way, and they are not shy about letting us know that they are. Arrogance might as well be their middle name.

The ruling class, not surprisingly, is also the statist party:
[O]ur ruling class’s standard approach to any and all matters, its solution to any and all problems, is to increase the power of the government – meaning of those who run it, meaning themselves, to profit those who pay with political support for privileged jobs, contracts, etc.
Despite the rulers’ chronic complaints about people’s exercising “discrimination” of one kind or another, they have no intention of treating everybody equally. Hence, “[l]aws and regulations nowadays are longer than ever because length is needed to specify how people will be treated unequally.” As the recent health-care and financial-reform statutes illustrate perfectly, however, much of the inequality is achieved not directly, but by the statutes’ delegation of authority to countless regulatory and administrative bodies, which will use their ample discretion to do the desired dirty work...MORE...LINK

Murder Of The People By Ruler-Class Is Integral Part Of Spenglerian, Cyclic (Western) "Decline"
(Apollonian, 26 Jul 10)

Well, there's one obvious problem w. Codevilla's otherwise excellent essay--it's "politically correct" (PC) itself, even as it decries PC. And obvious proof is Codevilla attempts to cover-up blatant fact Jews are integral part of the "ruling class," NOT part of "country class," at all.

Some (relatively) lower-level Jews, sociologically however, are wise enough to fact they're being sacrificed by the topmost mastermind Jews and their few gentile associates, and these lower-level Jews (who are still extremely rich themselves compared w. gentiles) are the ones backing Alex Jones (InfoWars.com) and Ron Paul (CampaignForLiberty.com).

But let us get even more specific: the "ruling class" consists simply in a gross CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY--these behind the US Federal Reserve Bank (Fed) COUNTERFEITING scam/operation/mechanism--see RealityZone.com for expo/ref. For that's what Fed is LITERALLY--a COUNTERFEIT racket, pure and simple.

And let's get further explicit for real truth: the people ("country class") are being steadily MURDERED, literally, as Alex Jones so brilliantly pt.s out with his most excellent journalism and collection of verifiable facts.

People are being destroyed by POISONED water which is tainted w. Flouride contamination--same goes for food additives, "aspartame" and MSG. Further, the genetically-engineered food products are themselves horrifically toxic and destructive, even if in slow-kill, gradualist manner. Birth weights of babies are going steadily DOWN; sterility of male population is INCREASING dramatically.

Vaccinations are tainted and contaminated DELIBERATELY to harm and de-populate the people, while laws are passed to force people to be vaccinated, diseases deliberately spread by these vaccinations. Autism among the children has gone up because of these toxic vaccinations and vaccines--AND IT'S ALL DELIBERATE.

But observe this horrific, gross murder of the people is rather natural consequence of CYCLIC historic process of "Decline of the West," by Oswald Spengler. Thus the ruler class despoils the evermore hubristic and over-populated people prior to inevitable crash/collapse of the economy which rulers must cover by means of keeping people diverted, confused, and in-fighting by means of Orwellian "perpetual war for perp. peace."

CONCLUSION: Thus people will suffer as population is steadily reduced and misery increased--until finally a core of survivors is able to coalesce and unite against the now over-populated, PARASITIC ruler class which itself must begin to fall-out with one another due to greatly reduced host-victims, there being "no honor among thieves." Internet blogs and blogging have been particularly instrumental for alert and uniting of the people--the "country class." Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

To apollonian,

your comments will be deleted unless they are germane to the post and not mere repetition of the same talking points. -- CM

Right--same old censorship--just a novel excuse for the occasion, eh?

Chris Moore said...

If I was interested in censorship, I would have banned you long ago. But the repetition grows tiresome. In the first comment above, you expanded upon some of your theories/talking points, so I left the post up. That's not the mark of a censor.
