11. The main difference is the American Reich...
makes the cut between Volk and trash more on the basis of class than race. And exploits American indifference to class issues to disguise what's going on. After all, that's why *every* time someone points out the ways the rich benefit disproportionately from a new policy the immediate chorus from the right is "that's class warfare."

In other words, *engaging* in class warfare is OK, but pointing it out when it happens is verboten under the current rules of public discourse.

* is *very* kind to "his base" (i.e. the "haves" and the "have mores"), rewards them richly, does not ask them to share in wartime sacrifice, etc. His racket is even better than Hitler's because the folks who can be readily hypnotized by "cultural" issues like gay marriage and the Schiavo circus scarcely even notice as he picks their pockets and sends their children off to die for Halliburton.
