All you ever hear about in this country is our differences-- that's all the media and the politicians are ever talking about: the things that separates us. Things that make us different from one another. That's the way the ruling class operates in any society-- they try to divide the rest of the people. They keep the lower and the middle classes fighting with each other so that they, the rich, can run off with all the fucking money. Fairly simple thing. Happens to work.
If you know anything different, that's what they're going to talk about: race, religion, ethnic and national background, jobs, income, education, social status, sexuality... anything they can do to keep us fighting with each other so that they can keep going to the bank.
