The Ruling Class Mostly Views You As Sub-Human

I used to do gigs with the scion of an executive from a major Midwestern industrial company, whose workers frequently were on strike in the late 90's. As is the case with a lot of children of the ruling class, she felt the need to play artist but lacked the talent to really make it. Anyhow, she had nothing but vitrol and contempt for the workers at the plants her father oversaw from the boardroom. Not a shred of pity for their economic situation, and not a shred of respect for the work they did. It's worth remembering these incidents, the few times one gets a peak inside the mindset of the barbarians who run the United States. You - we - are less than a piece of shit to them.

Back in the early '80s, workin' in a factory. One of the office higher-ups came through, giving some people a tour of the place. "Wonder who they are," I said. Randy said something I never forgot. "Oh, they're the scientists," he said, "here to study the lower forms of life."
