Surplus populations grow at the same rate as surplus capital accumulates. The US economy is awash in capital without any investment opportunities to either make things or provide services, and average household net worth has still not recovered to 2007 levels since the great recession. Surplus populations become class conscious, so they must be divided with nationalism and racism to avoid revolution. Trump has exploited Americans fear of their precarious situations caused by a neoliberal economy, and defended by Clinton. Whether caused by revolution, counterrevolution, nationalism, or racism, violence appears to be on America’s horizon.
