Ivy towers and filthy gutters

Continuing from this post, more response from reading Thomas Frank’s Listen Liberal concerning the establishment Dems. They are intellectuals from the best ivory towers, real smart in book lernin’ but not in touch with the people they supposedly represent. Most of them have never had to work 2-3 shit jobs to feed their family, or make choices about health care versus paying the rent. Our suffering never factors into their economic or philosophical models, isn’t even registered. It’s why all to often their remedies never do much if anything to ameliorate the suffering of the masses, being so top heavy with theory and idealism as to miss the boat entirely.
