Or: how the disconnect between the Capitol and the Districts, or between the New Class and the rest of us, is leading to “peasant revolts”. This is not just a US phenomenon: it is happening across Europe. A ruling class that is both ever more arrogant and ever less able to “deliver” *will* engender such a backlash. Of course, they may vote something in power that is just as bad as what they had, or even worse — but the current ruling class will have none to blame for that but themselves.
PS: the SCOTUS ruling he is referring to at the end concerns the “sick chicken case” (Schechter Poultry Corporation vs. United States).
