“America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution” by Angelo M. Codevilla from American Spectator July/August 2010 issue.   “Hence our ruling class’s standard approach to any and all matters, its solution to any and all problems, is to increase the power of the government — meaning of those who run it, meaning themselves, to profit those who pay with political support for privileged jobs, contracts, etc. ”  versus … “In general, the country class includes all those in stations high and low who are aghast at how relatively little honest work yields, by comparison with what just a little connection with the right bureaucracy can get you. ”  (h/t Instapundit … so “Read the whole thing.”) 🙂
