Love this, Chris. Thanks for articulating this birds-eye view, which has been sorely missing in the dialogue on this election cycle. The over-simplistic narrative being pushed by the media conglomerates perpetuates the systemic dumbing-down of the American consciousness and the illusion of moral superiority in the so-called “educated urban upper-class.” These folks have been so spiritually numbed that they sit idly by while growing poverty and homeless accompanies a back-drop of new development and impressive skylines.
