It's like the Republicans have built a scale where the fulcrum is so far to the right that conservatism would be in the center and issues most Americans support are "far left".
Oligarchs despise peace and shared prosperity. They know that they can only monopolize power if the majority is divided and busy at each other's throats. The viciousness of partisanship in America as the oligarchy seized power is not a coincidence, it's a key part of the plan.
