    ...because freedom.

    Economic discrimination? To the elites, that just means you weren't ruthless enough or smart enough or you didn't have a patron, like Justice Thomas. Never mind that the Horatio Alger meme is mostly bullshit.

    I mean, in these capitalist United States, money is becoming everything -- yet, strangely, having too little of it is, to the ruling class, about exactly nothing. Because money talks and...nothing else. Add that disdain to the rise in automation, and pretty soon the rest of us will all be Luddites.

    Privilege is its own reward, and the privileged increasingly seem to think everyone else can go to hell if they don't like it. But they'll wreck the country pursuing this path, if they haven't already. When they've run out of people to exploit, then what?
