Most of the top 1% today are senior corporate management, high-paid attorneys and other professionals, reflecting the growing managerialization of American society and the incorporation of a white collar New Class into the old plutocratic elite. And the effect of this class on the society it oversees is almost uniformly pernicious — as evidenced by the career of Clinton herself, whether as a tool of Walmart and Monsanto in her Rose Law Firm days or as an advocate for police state surveillance and drone killings in the State Department.
