“It’s been said that the rich are different than you and me. What most Americans don’t
know is that they’re also quite different from each other, and that which faction is currently
running the show ultimately makes a vast difference in the kind of country we are.
Right now, a lot of our problems stem directly from the fact that the wrong sort has finally
gotten the upper hand; a particularly brutal and anti-democratic strain of American aristo-
crat that the other elites have mostly managed to keep away from the levers of power since
the Revolution. Worse: this bunch has set a very ugly tone that’s corrupted how people with
power and money behave in every corner of our culture. Here’s what happened, and how it
happened, and what it means for America now.”

As always with AlterNet, this article is a damn good read,
and an excellent perspective of our shared Pax Americana reality.
Have you noticed how many articles I link from AlterNet?
It's because they do an excellent job of allowing truth to be authority,
rather than like FOX, where authority is manipulatively displayed as truth.
And like CommonDreams, et al, the "Comments" section is quite often
as enlightening as the article itself, sometimes even more so.
