23. I've heard tell that there are competing factions within the bourgeoisie (those who

 

own and control the means of production). One faction seeks order first and foremost as a necessary precondition to make money, its sole raison d'etre, and will make grudging concessions as the price of doing business. Worryingly, though, the other faction seeks riots, civil war and mayhem, with an eye towards further dialing back workers' gains since the New Deal and consolidating their grip on the neo-Feudal landscape.

One imagines at the country club golf courses, around the corporate boardrooms (and at the watercoolers) and in the tonier redoubts of Foggy Bottom and Westchester County, NY that the two factions are engaged in a lively debate with neither side having yet controlled the field decisively.
