This is one war that very few talk about. However, you can see it being waged everyday.
You can see it in the posts and comments in WB and other social media. You can see it at family gatherings. You see it in the workplace. It is the polarizing of our society which is being crafted and perpetuated not by either side, but by the Elite.
Who are the Elite? They are the Billionaires in the world who want their descendants to stay Billionaires for generations to come, they are the royalty of our generation. Do they have a secret council who meet and decide the fate of the world? Are they the ‘Illuminati’ or other terms used? Maybe, but I think they are just behaving in a way which serves their interests and may cooperate from time to time in a subtle way, however it is very simple what they are trying to achieve, so they do not need big think tanks or clandestine gatherings.
All the Elite have to do is keep the non-elite fighting and blaming one another for what they see as the problems of the world in general. They do this by making the common working people think that the bad people in the world are the intellectuals. The ‘libtards’ is a term used often by the working people to describe their adversaries. And the intellectuals keep calling the working people uninformed or stupid, and the fight is on.
The intellectuals and the common people have far more in common with one another than they do the Elites. Intellectuals are not rich, however most of the common working people think they are and that they are the same as the Elite. Yes, they make more income, but most are not even millionaires let alone Billionaires.
The Elite are successful and becoming more successful with this game. And social media platforms are making it even easier with the use of “bots” and hired trolls.
I think most of the bots are hired by Big Business to rile up the working people who feel ripped off that all they do is work and debt keeps piling up. (American Dream, make America great again and all that) The bots would tend to focus more on the "Fox news fans" and further rile them up by making them think that the immigrants and non-whites are keeping them from having the wealth they so deserve. Meanwhile what the Elite/Big Business types (talking Billionaires) are achieving is keeping the working class fighting with the intellectuals, and Big Business wins! Just look at the income gap widening over the last 20 years for proof that they are winning! Meanwhile the working class blames the intellectuals (Libtards and all that) for all the problems. Trump said he "loves the uneducated", and that is one thing he is not lying about.
