Leaked CIA Memos Confirm Class Warfare
The current craze, known as Occupy Wall Street, focuses on income inequality as the major source of complaints launched against Corporate America, which has apparently merged with the U.S. Government in what is known as an “Oligarchy” (rule by the few). Hence the enforcers work for the plutocracy (rule by the rich). According to secret memos, leaked by the CIA, organized class warfare by the top 1 % against the bottom 99% is having a destabilizing effect on civil society.
To wit: “Continued unrest, organized by educated but unemployed college students, will become a permanent part of urban, suburban, and small town landscape in America under the current system” (Memo No. 999, entitled: OWS Protests).
More: “Young people and their sympathizers are in contact with their Tunisian, Egyptian, and Libyan counterparts. Decentralized leadership is a threat to top-down hierarchies in both the Corporate and Government status quo (Memo No. 666, entitled: Threat Assessment).
Finally: “Today’s electronically wired populace, supported by urban outfitters and self-sustaining secret networks, are capable of disrupting the peaceful image of America as a democratic beacon for the foreseeable future” (Memo No. 1776 entitled: Longevity).

(Google CBO Summary)
From 1979 to 2007, real (inflation-adjusted) average household income, measured after government transfers and federal taxes, grew by 62 percent. During that period, the evolution of the nation’s economy and the tax and spending policies of the federal government and state and local governments had varying effects on households at different points in the income distribution: Income after transfers and federal taxes (denoted as after-tax income in the study) for households at the higher end of the income scale rose much more rapidly than income for households in the middle and at the lower end of the income scale.
For the 1 percent of the population with the highest income, average real after-tax household income grew by 275 percent between 1979 and 2007.
For others in the 20 percent of the population with the highest income (those in the 81st through 99th percentiles), average real after-tax household income grew by 65 percent over that period, much faster than it did for the remaining 80 percent of the population, but not nearly as fast as for the top 1 percent.
For the 60 percent of the population in the middle of the income scale (the 21st through 80th percentiles), the growth in average real after-tax household income was just under 40 percent.
For the 20 percent of the population with the lowest income, average real after-tax household income was about 18 percent higher in 2007 than it had been in 1979.
As a result of that uneven income growth, the distribution of after-tax household income in the United States was substantially more unequal in 2007 than in 1979:
The share of income accruing to higher-income households increased, whereas the share accruing to other households declined. In fact, between 2005 and 2007, the after-tax income received by the 20 percent of the population with the highest income exceeded the after tax income of the remaining 80 percent.
