Try This Instead

March 25th, 2013at 07:31am Posted by Eli

Yves makes a good case for calling the billionaires who control our country “oligarchs” instead of “elites” – my only hesitation about endorsing the switch is that it clears the field for the right to continue accusing progressives of being “out-of-touch ivory tower elitists”.  I think it’s valuable to point out who the real elites are in this country, but I do agree that “oligarchs” is a better descriptive term, and immediately conjures up all the right overtones of power, avarice and corruption.
