You might say that their first loyalty is to the 1%, and that loyalty “Trumps” (wink) any other loyalties that they may have to party, ideology, nation, faith, morals, allies, really anything.
In other words, the 1% is the 1%.
There is the “Democratic” 1% and the “Republican” 1%.
There is the “liberal” 1% and the “conservative” 1%.
But at the end of the day, they’re all just the 1%, and I assume that they are all holding hands with each other, going to same conferences, endorsing each other, plotting together, partying with one another, marrying each other, etc.
Marx would say that these people have one loyalty and one loyalty only: they are loyal to their class interests, and everything else be damned. Marx would be right. People don’t read him enough.
