One in which everyone, regardless of birth status, income, race, or gender, can have the opportunity to get a good education, earn a living wage, and theoretically have full social, cultural, economic, and political equality in what the history books once preached was the most democratic society on earth. An idea some no longer believe in.

That ideal of an egalitarian society has, sadly, become an anathema to so many on Wall Street and their representatives in Washington and the presidential race. Thus you have Santorum infamously attacking the French Revolution goal of "fraternity" and suggesting that it, and President Obama, are leading everyone down the path to the guillotine.

If a little more clumsy, Santorum is hardly the only one letting slip that the idea of an egalitarian society is one to be discarded.

Indeed, when Mitt Romney attacks "liberals" for questioning his many homes and cars as showing they are "jealous of success," and Romney, Santorum and many others attack the Occupy Wall Street movement for questioning what the 1 percent has done to America, they are making it clear they like the way things are and they intend to keep it that way.
