Follow my reasoning. Consider that his Administration is not really discouraging class conflict but is enhancing class consciousness. This supports the inference that -- but is not the same as -- his Administration or its policies are designed to stoke resentment of the "rich" in order to make the "rich" want to self-isolate. Then you have to think how the "rich" are defined. Suspend rationality. In a world sanctifying envy on every level, being "rich" simply means you have something which someone else wants and thinks they're entitled to take from you.
Consider that in most societies, the "achiever" class ends up being clostered behind high fences, in policed communities or otherwise segregated. (How the achievers got their wealth, and the merits and demerits of feudalism, are related topics and useful for discussion, but not in a short blog post.) Think back to the classic medieval protections of the high castle walls and moats. The "haves" recognized that their possessions, their status, even their literal physical safety, were at risk from the "commoners."
What if current policies are either designed to enhance this new class consciousness, this new (or a return to the old) awareness that relative wealth carried with it the penalty of being at risk from the class envy or raw rapaciousness of the street mob?
Could the effect (if not the objective) be to make the self-isolating achievers more dependent on government for their protection?
Could the effect or objective be to induce the "haves" to seek government protection or interference?
Could the effect be to have the "haves" realize their common class interest with the government class?
Could this all be about a reordering of American society into a two-tiered structure, one much more in line with classic human societal boundaries in which you have the "owners of the means of production" (whether that means the literal owners or the managerial class), and then you have...well...everyone else.
Could America be turning into the classic aristocracies of Europe (see why they're imitating European government policies?), and in such a new social utopia the power and influence of the meritocracy and aristocracy is actually magnified?
What if America, and the concept of a democratic, pluralistic, relatively equal (if illusory) society, is really the outlier in human history -- many argue that this is what makes America unique -- and is merely regressing to the norm?
Incidentally, Obama is not the cause of this mentality. His presidency, at most, is only a symptom. Blaming Obama is the biggest waste of time in addition to being a huge strategic blunder. It would be hilarious, if it wasn't so boring.
What do you think?
