A concise and brilliant analysis of one side of the culture war. I grew up among these people, and this piece is dead on. This class is far larger in Europe and the Third World then it is in America, which I think explains a lot. Friedrich Hayek basically theorized this would happen forty years ago, how state ownership and control eventually creates a stratified overclass suspiciously resembling the feudalism that the state was supposedly intervening to prevent. Chalk up another point for Friedrich Von.
