A Rasmussen poll from early March revealed just 37 percent of Americans earning under $30,000 annually supported U.S. military involvement in the event of a wider war in Europe; a staggering 66 percent of those earning more than $200,000 supported such an endeavor in that poll.
The most shocking – and, arguably, most troubling – numbers were the 51 percent of those earning $50,000-100,000, and 52 percent of those earning $100,000-200,000, who would support such military action.
If the working class doesn’t want its children to go to war, the professional class must maintain they are simple-minded.
If Russian political interference (whether facts support it or not) is connected to former President Donald Trump, then the professional class must despise Russia to maintain a place in polite society. Disappointingly, even something as terrible as nuclear war seems worth the effort of the professional class to separate itself from the working class.
So I implore my fellow middle-class Americans to stop the irresponsible saber-rattling. This isn’t our war. This isn’t an excuse to send our children to slaughter. This isn’t worth nuclear missile attacks. Challenge Putin’s madness, but please don’t get us into a war we will surely regret.
