Let me clarify that this is a post on "elitism". Similar terms are "the establishment" or "the system". These terms, it seems to me, encapsulate the two major parties. The elites are the all encompassing elected and unelected decision makers. To control their success and power they set our division in the terms of men vs. women, black vs. white, rich vs. poor, old vs. young, or English speaking vs. non-English speaking.
Not to minimize these divides, but these are not the real divides. The real divide is over foreign policy and war. The people who have ruled us and want to rule us want to make the world over in the American image, with American values.
They are more concerned with affairs outside the US than they are about fixing our domestic needs like open borders, education, medical insurance, social security,energy, environment, economic globalization, and so forth.
