a prominent one, with much Made in China stuff, in a fiercely non-union reactionary part of the country.
The working class in these parts is dumbed down and preyed upon, and wallows in fundamentalist religion as an opiate.
It's frightening to think of the entire U.S becoming this, and seeing how it could work in a brutal way. Where workers are mostly morbidly obese and a too-high percentage noticeably limping. Unread, untraveled, and submissive to authority. And ruled by a nasty elite who mocks and ridicules them.
This is the political worldview that is winning.
