Plutocracy Now: What Wisconsin Is Really About

I wonder if the problem is that most conservatives are still looking at the world through the lenses of political ideology when they've been co-opted by people who look through the lenses of economic power? Is it that they see "rugged individual responsibility" instead of "if we can keep them from hanging together, we can hang them individually"?

middle-class voters who keep getting the short end of the economic
stick—that the policy preferences of the business community are good for
everyone. But in practice, the benefits have gone almost entirely to
the very wealthy."
