Conspiracy Theory? – Or – Just what Everyone was Saying…?

I wrote this post pointing out a common example of Conspiracy Theory-ish claims that don’t look too crazy — if you have some familiarity with Philosophy and Science and Literature from the past…

Just look at a more contemporary phenomenon: When you see people everywhere – from Entertainment big shots to Power-Players in Washington DC to comic books — using references like — Trailer Trash – White Trash – and other variations of Redneck — You kinda get the feeling — something in the culture of that day — has a massive hatred for the Working Class – and more specifically – those with a particular skin color….

…I feel I know enough to say with at least a little confidence — Such contempt expressed like that isn’t limited to just low-income white people who happen to live in a trailer or trailer park…  That if you are black or Asian and live in one — they look down on you too… And that it is highly likely some amount of contempt is felt for all low-income workers and household —– no matter where you live or what your race, religion, gender, or whatever might be…

I’m not going to write a long post on this – but – if you were around in the 1970s – you’d have heard a lot about —- The Coming Global Catastrophe of Over-Population and Resource Scarcity…

— It was written about much in Intellectual-type material from Government Studies to Think-Tank stuff to the more literary products of the Intelligencia…

If you are cynical – you might start summing it up something like “Poor people take up too much Oxygen…”

And if you think I’m joking:
