Cut away the drama and you get the class struggle

In the United States it has been unpopular to think of American society as divided into economic classes.
It flies in the face of what the United States of America believes it stands for and what we value:
equality and equal opportunity.
The class system is not obvious and gets obscured because the working class and the middle class are effectively pitted against each other via race, religion and sexuality.
Consequently, groups in the same economic classes have animosity and often experience hatred while the super-rich are very much united. It serves the profit margin of the super-rich and corporations when the lower and middle classes are in conflict.
The enthusiasm for poverty of the favored group shows how well the divisions work. They vote against their own interests over and over again.
What do they get out of it?
Not much. They get the satisfaction that they can call themselves better than others who are not like them. This favoritism plays out mainly with skin color.
The plan to eliminate the social safety nets for the poor and the middle class has been in the works since the 1950s-1960s when, after the Great Depression, some public resources had become channeled to the working people for their own social security and safety net.
Time and time again, the group that thinks itself better than others in the same category, believes that the powers-that-be would take care of them if they only supported them by keeping them in power.
That is far removed from reality but so far it has fallen on deaf ears of the people who are in the same boat with all of us but they prefer to look through their red-colored glasses.
We hope that sooner or later people will wake up and start watching out for themselves and realize there is enough for
all of us.
