8. I see the attitude constantly in the comments after local news stories.
Frequent comments like "I make less than state employees. They should all be fired!"

The sociologists call it "parallel violence." Oppressed people turn on one another instead of against the people oppressing them.

10. Ah, interesting. I wonder if it's because we feel helpless/powerless
when it comes to the oppressors but can feel some sort of control when we direct it to our peers?

6. The RW convinces low-pay non-union workers that everyone should be paid shit
rather than unionizing and getting politically involved to improve conditions for all workers.

4. That last one is popular opinion around here, too.
Does it ever occur to these people that maybe the reason public employees make more and have better benefits than they do is because they're being screwed bloody by Capitalism?

5. They also fail to realize that we are usually talking apples and oranges in skill sets
I could not be a K-12 teacher. I just do not have the patience or energy to do it.
