There is a Class War occurring in the United States today.
I will identify the individuals who are waging this war and who are benefitting from it below.
Before that, a short statement on Economics and Class War will be helpful:
Class war today is waged by private individuals and corporations who interfere in markets for their private gain at the expense of everyone else.
There is no recognized school of Economic thought which supports private, non-governmental interference in markets. It is true that the Keynesian school of Economic thought supports GOVERNMENTAL market interference for the common good.
Interference in markets which arises from private, non-governmental actions is universally condemned as monopolistic, oligopolistic and/or rent seeking behavior which harms the overall economy.
Occasionally, some ignorant individuals claim that Economic theory does justify monopolies, oligopolies and other non-competitive behavior. This claim is false. While this claim is often used to justify Class War tactics, the claim is always incorrect.
CLASS WAR OBJECTIVES
The sole objective of Class War is to make the perpetrators richer by stealing from those people who have less money and influence than the perpetrators.
This motive is directly contradictory to the founding principles of the United States of America.
CLASS WAR METHODS
Class War perpetrators use the Federal Government of the United States of America to change the laws and regulations to benefit their interests. They do so by bribing legislators and regulators to remove laws which interfere with their actions and to create laws which support their actions. They also support the selection of legislators and regulators who support their war.
LIST OF CLASS WAR PERPETRATORS
This list is developed with gratitude from DARK MONEY, 2016, Jane Mayer, Doubleday, New York.
Charles Koch and David Koch organized a movement to undermine United States laws and regulations at a conference in January 2009 in California; they invited many billionaires to the conference laid out an agenda of propaganda, lobbying, bribery and support for elected officials designed to facilitate a Class War.
Richard Mellon Scaife, heir to the Mellon Banking and Gulf oil fortunes.
Harry and Lynde Bradley, defense contractors.
John M. Olin, chemical and munitions titan
Coors Family of Colorado, beer.
DeVos Family of Michigan, Amway.
There you have it.
These are the most influential people who, together with their employees, contractors and sycophants, are actively subverting the United States of America today for their own personal monetary gain.
