Who Runs America? - Have your say

In a recent article in the Jewish Press, Caroline Glick wrote an article entitled: Israel's ruling class in which she discussed a recent article in The American Spectator titled "America's Ruling Class," written by Prof. Angelo Codevilla who describes the divide between those who run the US - the politicians, bureaucrats and policy establishment - and the rest of the country.

  • He [Prof Codevilla] laments that, "Never has there been so little diversity within America's upper crust."

    In his view, the American ruling class "was formed by an educational system that exposed them to the same ideas and gave them remarkably uniform guidance, as well as tastes and habits. These amount to a social canon of judgments about good and evil, complete with secular sacred history, sins (against minorities and the environment), and saints. Using the right words and avoiding the wrong ones when referring to such matters - speaking the 'in' language - serves as a badge of identity."

    The main unifying characteristic of the American "ruling class" as Codevilla describes it is inexhaustible contempt for the majority of their countrymen who are not part of their clique. In his words, "our ruling class does not like the rest of America. Most of all does it dislikes that so many Americans think America is substantially different from the rest of the world and like it that way."

Both articles are extremely interesting reads.

What do you think about the situation?
