how about work all your life in govt slavery, and be lectured about how evil you are day in and day out,
and how if you dont give up even more of your rights and money your hard work may not lift you up.

Ask me how I know Michael Ryan knows nothing about postwar America.

Ask me how I know Lynn Stuart Parramore knows nothing about postwar America.

(As an aside I wonder how many Cinderella-loving parents would want their young boy to be brought up wanting to be a prince?)

The author does understand who pays most of the income taxes in the US doesn’t she?

The people who have fortunes (and make the press, especially the tabloids) seem to be trapped. I have the freedom to walk into town for a paper, and would not trade this for anything in any world.

Quoting the thoroughly debunked Thomas Piketty in a non-ironic way helps your narrative about as well as quoting David Icke in a non-ironic way.

And hate to break this to you but Cinderella is not an American story, or a story that has anything to say about America. It was written in 1634 and kudos to Branagh for not doing a Cinderella retcon aimed at pleasing leftist American cultural critics.
