One of the worst aspects of our present non-egalitarian society based on class inequality is this: The ruling plutocracy pits ordinary people against each other along racial and other lines in order to divide and rule us. The rulers know that most people hate being ruled over by an extremely rich, privileged and powerful ruling class. And the rulers know that the only way to prevent people from removing them from power is by destroying solidarity among ordinary people. This is why the rulers use lies and manipulation to foment mistrust and resentment (and in some cases even outright mutual contempt, fear and violence) between people of different groups based on race (the main such division in the United States) and other differences such as religion, ethnicity, gender and citizenship status.


Here are links to articles, books and publicly displayed notices that expose divide-and-rule lies and manipulations:
