That is, the rich would rather deal with the poor, who are easier to buy and manipulate, than with the middle class, which has its own stubborn ideas about the way things ought to be.
This phenomenon is made visible in the relationship between, say, billionaire George Soros and street czar Al Sharpton. Virgil has no idea if the two men have ever met in person to strategize, but Soros has given away tens of billions of dollars in “charity,” mostly, of course, to left-wing activist groups, including those that have helped elect turn ’em loose district attorneys in cities, including now- crime-plagued Chicago and San Francisco. Thus it’s a cinch that Sorosian gravy has poured into Sharpton’s train. And in any case, both Soros and Sharpton support Democrats and left-wing causes; they are, for sure, allies.
So if the high and the low are together, what about the middle? Well, the middle class, you see, tends to be different from those above and below. The middle class tends to have moderate, even conservative, values, including the honoring of family, tradition, duty, and patriotism. After all, the middle class has achieved its status by forming stable families, working hard, and embracing bourgeois values–and thus it has deep stake in a normal order that reinforces those values.
