Oh yes I understood that reference as well.....the left and the communists have been pushing the other view for decades. Animal Farm is hardly where we are.... but if you want to be that pessimistic have at it

It’s good that you understood “that reference” as well, since it is the primary one—my post was a quote from that work after all. That police in some states happen to be even more privileged than police in other states leading to additional levels of meaning to the quotation was merely a nice literary bonus.

If you don’t think that there are in fact different classes in society, and that certain classes of government employees are effectively a privileged class in some ways, enjoy your fantasy world. Do you have a government pension, or do you try to get away with what a cop can get away with?
