A ruling class need not be monolithic, however. In fact, most ruling classes are divided into two broad factions, which we may call the political class and the corporate class. The political class comprises those who are in direct control of running the state — politicians, civil servants, and the like; the corporate class, on the other hand, comprises the wealthy quasi-private beneficiaries of state power — the collectors of subsidies, government contracts, and grants of monopoly privilege. These two groups might be called the Bureaucrats and the Plutocrats.

I know. I know. You never heard about this in history class. Talk like this destroys any semblance of faith that you enjoyed. True. This doesn’t comport with your history. Double true. But as Tolstoy said, history would be a wonderful thing if only it were true. Such is reality, impression and the news. Wonderful if only it were true. True if only it were wonderful.
And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye. Who cares about Alba, right? I care. I cared that maybe this would strike a blow against globalism and the subjugation of sovereignty through the barbed wire of the dread Union. Globalists yearn for the future EUs. Now, look. Lest you be confused. The UK ain’t the EU. Dig. But there’s something that’s completely inconsistent with and antithetical to freedom and that is consolidation and shared sovereignty. The notion of shared and concomitant partnership are wonderful, but that’s not what I’m speaking of in this world we live.
The NFL is brain scrambled toast. I’d have never imagined that the bastion of maleness would capitulate like a bunch of little sissy boys especially under the tutelage and stewarding of Roger Goodell. Why must the NFL have a policy on domestic violence and child abuse? Tell me what Whole Foods’ policy is. Or GM’s. What utter rubbish. And what’s feint the maelstrom is social media. Yet again.
And behold miscellany. The myriad. The mosaic. The plenary and assorted and sordid. Stream of unconsciousness. Enjoy.
