The aristocrats must not abandon their people

As the bottom third (under the guise of the 99%) attacks the top third (calling them the 1%), the top increasingly abandon and shelters itself. The US is becoming more like Brazil.

I wonder if the top isn’t making a mistake as they, quite sensibly, pursue self-preservation. Perhaps they should make a more deliberate effort to provide arguments, a vision, and a positive example to the bottom. Or else the Cathedral will mobilize them for its own purposes.

In other words, I wonder if the beliefs and norms of the bottom third isn’t the “decisive terrain” in the struggle to shape modern society.
