The whole left/right thing is about as important as the Jaguars winning a playoff game. Just entertainment.

Columbia University Sociology Professor C. Wright Mills wrote The Power Elite in 1956.

In 1961 two-term President and 5-star General Dwight Eisenhower warned of the rising power of the Military-Industrial-Complex in his Farewell Address.

However, in the last 60 years the Power Elite have not lost power, but instead have evolved into the Military-Industrial-Pharmaceutical-Educational-Banking-Congressional-Etc.-Complex with, imho, the CIA, not the Executive or Judicial branches of government, in the catbird seat.
