I don't romanticize any working class.

But I don't de-humanize them either.

All those things you mention will be the first signs of a clear 
division within the US, and in fact some are taking place already.

I am not expecting a socialist revolution to take place soon in the 
US.  I only said that the road to the banks would be bumpy.

And a Fascistization of the US is, in itself, a dangerous issue.  
Ruling classes expect to avoid this kind of things or at least to 
keep them reduced to emergency situations.

And for good reasons.
