Imaginary Universe

Of course, in the imaginary universe where a billionaire can empathize with and defend the interests of working classes, it totally makes sense to have rich kids who think they can empathize with and defend the interests of the oppressed. It’s all part of a mentality that rejects class solidarity to reinforce a classist structure where workers are considered to be so irredeemably dumb that they can’t even articulate their own interests and need the rich to do it for them.

  2. Is this one reason the rich are so paternal/maternal/condescending/patronizing towards all those “lesser” types they dutifully “feel so bad for” in their tokenistically charitable fashion?
