The lower middle class, the small manufacturer, the shopkeeper, the artisan, the peasant, all these fight against the bourgeoisie, to save from extinction their existence as fractions of the middle class. They are therefore not revolutionary, but conservative. Nay more, they are reactionary, for they try to roll back the wheel of history. If by chance, they are revolutionary, they are only so in view of their impending transfer into the proletariat; they thus defend not their present, but their future interests, they desert their own standpoint to place themselves at that of the proletariat.

The “dangerous class”, [lumpenproletariat] the social scum, that passively rotting mass thrown off by the lowest layers of the old society, may, here and there, be swept into the movement by a proletarian revolution; its conditions of life, however, prepare it far more for the part of a bribed tool of reactionary intrigue.

Since I doubt that US levels of welfare benefits, even enhanced by any special pandemic relief elements (I don't know how it works in the US), can be terribly generous, that does rather raise questions in my mind about levels of pay generally in those two lines of business in your area.
Yeah, COVID didn't really cause this problem, it just accelerated it and brought it more into the light.

From the Past, a Chilling Warning About the Extremists of the Present (msn.com)


They robbed an armored car outside a sprawling Seattle shopping mall.

They bombed a synagogue in Boise, Idaho, and within weeks assassinated a Jewish talk radio host in Denver.

Then a month later, they plundered another armored car on a California highway in a spectacular daylight heist that netted more than $3.6 million.

What initially seemed to F.B.I. agents like distant, disparate crimes turned out to be the opening salvos in a war against the federal government by members of a violent extremist group called the Order, who sought to establish a whites-only homeland out West.

Their crime spree played out in 1984. Fast forward to 2021. Federal agents and prosecutors who dismantled the Order see troubling echoes of its threat to democracy in the Capitol riot and the growing extremist activity across the country.

Further down the Bernie thread, the Q documentary guy chimes in.
And someone hits the nail on the head.. I didn't watch all of "Into The Storm", but the parts I saw didn't deal with that aspect.
You'd think he'd have known about the group in WolfEyes' post.

Waiting to hear about this from the folks who get so vexed about "religious freedom" in the context of abortion, same sex marriage and contraception.

Many of those that have been indoctrinated weren't even born yet when the Order was taken down.

It's also a rather odd coincidence that the Order's crime spree took place in 1984. Or is it a coincidence? 🤔

Same old shit, different day. They clad themselves differently, they preach differently, but it always comes back to the same basic hatred.

A welcome move, I think, that recognises how necessary a reliable internet connection now is.

(It may not go far enough, and certainly isn't the only help people on low incomes need, but it's a start).
