Conservatives Turn Progressive?
"The objective of the predatory super-rich and their political handmaidens is to discredit and destroy the traditional nation state and auction its resources to themselves."

Incredibly, that statement is from a conservative magazine. Read it here.

Remarkably, not all conservatives are super-rich, and they're starting to realize that the monster won't stop eating its way up when it gets past the middle class.

The incredible thing to me is the way non-super-rich conservatives still identify as Republican. The party offers nothing to anyone making less than $250k a year except legitimizing their anger at anyone not like them.

A surprisingly good piece, even if the author probably comes at the question from a completely different POV from mine.
