PoliEdPod 2: ‘Diversity’ is a Ruling-Class Ideology (w/ Christian Parenti)

“Those who own the country ought to govern it.” (John Jay)

“…if elections were open to all classes of people, the property of the landed proprietors would be insecure. […] our government ought to secure the permanent interests of the country against innovation. […] [it] ought to be so constituted as to protect the minority of the opulent against the majority. […] The Senate ought to represent the opulent Minority…” (James Madison)

“…nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” (5th Amendment to US Constitution)
