U.S. Ruling Class and the Expendable Class

Whether it's Paul Ryan showing up uninvited to clean already clean pots and pans at a homeless shelter, or the military and/or SWAT teams hunting the homeless for target practice, or the extensive toxic experimenting on the homeless, African Americans, and the lower-income, inner-city folks , revealed recently, or the overwhelming percentages of people from the lower socioeconomic strata behind bars for non-violent offenses, or the overwhelming number of minority poor awaiting execution,  it's clear how America's "naturally selected" cultural, political and socioeconomic ruling class regard  the lower class: expendable, disposable, nonessential, replaceable, unimportant, and only useful insofar as they function as lab rats to further their own interests...to quench their insatiable appetite for profit, power and privilege.

Just recently, it was reported that potentially deadly human experimentation is taking place this very day – sanctioned by the U.S. government! That's right. Illegal human experimentation by the EPA for the purposes of determining the effect of poisons is taking place right now. And let's not forget that 40-49% of homeless men are veterans. That's the thanks they get for fighting the wars that  line the already lined pockets of the rich and powerful.  That is, those who survive bloody combat.

The aforementioned examples are only a drop in the bucket.   Dig deep enough and one could fill an encyclopedia with cases illustrating the attempt by the "naturally selected" to dehumanize the portion of the population who were not born into, or have not "achieved" worldly success.  In other words, those "unfortunates", who were not naturally selected to become gods upon the earth. Because that is exactly how the ruling class see  themselves--as gods, or emerging gods. 

"The minority, the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the Church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make its tool of them.” -- Albert Einstein
Of course, none of this is new. Not at all. However, there is no doubt that as the wealth becomes more concentrated in the hands of the few, and technology continues to replace human beings in the workplace, and elites have no allegiance to anything but chasing the highest returns and cheapest labor around the globe, an ever-increasing number of us join the ranks of the easily sacrificed.
