This is not about New Age. When I mentioned spiritual and intellectual happines, I was referring t ...
Few of the big corporations in Silicon Valley or elsewhere would be what they are, if there was no market among much lower educated people to buy their products and services. Those foreign-born immigrants, just like their native peers in USA, would be jobless if there was no American middle-class.
That's actually the problem: the American middle-class is disappearing because blue-collar manufacturing jobs have gone to Mexico while white-collar IT and call-center jobs have gone to India and the Philippines. Meanwhile the tech jobs in Silicon Valley have gone to foreign-born Asian immigrants while the service jobs have been taken up by Mexican illegals. And there's a good reason for this: U.S corporations prefer hiring foreign workers because they have the virtues of discipline, work ethic and loyalty that U.S.-born citizens lack. Even Trump's own company preferred hiring foreign workers for his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida!!!
And that's those "drug-addicted, homo rights, gay marriage and transgender-loving rock-stars" that you seem to despise.
That was a tongue-in-cheek comment about the decline and fall of traditional WASP culture which has undermined the moral, spiritual, social and cultural foundations of the White Working Class in the U.S.A. Starting with the counter-cultural revolution of the hippie generation in the 60s, the traditional values of family, faith, community and nationhood have all but disappeared, only to be replaced by the amoral hedonism, selfish individualism and material greed of post-modern neo-liberalism.
But don't get me wrong: I don't despise them at all but I do pity them because they're the biggest losers in the globalization game played by neoliberal Capitalists.
