Now that an oligarch owns Twitter, even though he knows how to tweet, and feels like a man of the people, he lives in a different world from you and I. He’s cute but he owns us. He has freedom, don’t believe for a minute that you do. Key point. This is how rich people trick us all the time. They get us to identify with them. That’s why so many poor people vote Republican. This idea goes all the way back to slavery.

A reason for the dismantling of pensions and the attacks on social security is to make us all capitalists through 401ks. The above is as much a description of Trump as it is of Musk. The oligarchs have been at war with the citizens of the United States since the 1930s.
