“Clinton, Inc., Trump, Inc., Bush, Inc., Kennedy, Inc., O’Bama, Inc. (October 24, 2016)” Four Years Later (October 26, 2020)

. . .

K          “Add Biden, Inc. to the mix.  The Bideni gang rides again.”

J          “Over six years ago it was clear that the sons of the Ruling Class like Kerry-Heinz and Biden were positioned and poised to make a killing.  No matter how things stay the same, they stay the same.”

. . .

K          “Professor G. William Domhoff’s classic examination of power in America, Who Rules America?, revisited and explored observations developed earlier by Professor C. Wright Mills in his seminal The Power Elite.  I read Mills in high school and Domhoff in college.  Now there is Professor Peter Phillips who has written Giants, Who Really Rules The World? and refines and updates the analysis.”

J          “Phillips in the graduate school of life.  His division of the new “Global Power Elite” into four sections includes four archetypes: 1) Managers (i.e., the financial elite), 2) Facilitators (i.e., bureaucrats and policy planners), 3) Protectors (i.e., military-intelligence apparatus of power), and 4) Ideologists (i.e., public-relations operatives and propagandists) is frighteningly insightful.  An inquiry into the absolute domination of the powerful over the powerless.  To continue the tradition, he may need to add an initial to his name . . . say Professor P. Peter Phillips.”

. . .

K          “That uneasy feeling in late October 2016 manifested itself in the political surprise of our lifetime.”

J          “I’m still uneasy.”
