Just as with the neoconservative foreign policy of simply roll over any
potential military opposition, there is a wing of the US capitalist class
that believes the same is possible domestically. Are they right?

"The SF Bay Area sports world is in a tizzy about the owner of the SF
(baseball) Giants having donated to the campaign of the racist Cindy Hyde
Smith of Mississippi. They’re missing the point. The issue is not the owner
of the SF Giants. Back around the time that Trump was elected, somebody I
know had pointed out to me that he must have some support from some of the
capitalists; he can’t be a total outsider. I’ve thought about that in
relation to a related issue: There always has been a wing of the capitalist
class that never has accepted any of the changes that have come about in
the US. Workers winning some rights through the labor uprisings of the
1930s? No. Black people putting an end to the worst excesses of racism?
Nope. Women being regarded as equal to men? Scratch that too. Even the few
social benefits put into effect by the New Deal, done to prevent an even
worse crisis. No need for that...."

As Trotsky put it: “History says to the working class ‘you must know that
unless you cast down the bourgeoisie (the capitalist class), you will
perish beneath the ruins of the capitalist civilization. Try, solve this
