Remember, a bloated, over-funded, unaccountable government sector is both the hallmark and the ultimate goal of any Bolshevik regime and such a government cannot coexist with a thriving private sector for many reasons, but suffice it to say that they would be competing for human resources, especially highly skilled ones. First, the Democrats in Congress made it nearly impossible to fire a government employee for any reason, making government employment into a lifelong sinecure that once attained, set one for life. Next, the same corrupt individuals allowed government employees to unionize, creating a situation in which the typical negotiations between ownership and employees are friendly rather than adversarial.
The only brakes, if any, are the vague and ineffective limits that the American taxpayers may put on their elected representatives in terms of runaway spending. This corrupt to the core idea of government employee labor unions resulted in the unheard of pension plans that plague the balance sheets of every government jurisdiction.
Finally and crucially, the congressional Democrats and their Republican flunkies with the willing participation of the Supreme Court transferred substantially all of the levers of governance from the legislative branch where the Constitution had placed them to the unelected and unaccountable government bureaucracy. The impact of this last measure cannot be overestimated.
Not only has it resulted in the creation of millions of additional government jobs, not only has it made the policies that affect everyday Americans the purview of unelected personnel with lifetime tenure, it all but effaced the federal nature of the American Republic, making it substantially into a Bolshevik dictatorship. The American Constitution, a document that is diametrically opposed to Bolshevik-style totalitarianism, gave Americans two ways of affecting their lives through the instrument of voting; they could vote with their hands, electing representatives who faithfully reflected their values and desires, and they could vote with their feet by moving to another state should they find themselves in the minority in their own.
The Bolshevization of America, a project that started around the time of the Bolshevik takeover of the Russian Empire, has now all but succeeded in disenfranchising Americans from both of these voting methods. The policies that most affect Americans, from abortion to environmental regulations are not made by elected officials at any level of elected government; they are made in the bowels of the unelected federal bureaucracy we call the Deep State.
Since these policies are made at the federal level, moving from one state to another offers only limited reprieve from their effects. The creation of the Deep State is the biggest and most important innovation of American neo-Bolsheviks. Not for them were hasty actions resulting is civil wars, famine, and the wholesale destruction of invaluable infrastructure as happened in Russia and China.
American Bolsheviks would take power gradually, imperceptibly, inevitably, almost by default. They would boil the American public slowly like the proverbial frog until such time that resistance would be futile, until it would simply be too late. American neo-Bolsheviks understood that the elites — deplorables dichotomy cannot be maintained without two additional classes: a class of technocrats we know of as the Deep State and a class of unaccountable enforcers that can engage in seemingly uncontrolled, but actually highly orchestrated violence.
To be honest, we caught a bit of a break with that last one; the violent enforcer class creation has not gone as planned for our ruling elites. Their first choice were African Americans whom they have been agitating for many decades now. While this project is ongoing, African Americans have not proven to be quite as disciplined or efficient as they were expected to, necessitating Plans B and even C. It is an inspired choice because unlike African Americans it meets both the necessary condition of an innate, inherent penchant for violence with having no love whatsoever for America.
Muslims can openly preach politics and incite racial hate from mosque pulpits without ever getting into the slightest trouble with the IRS. They can create their own private police forces. They can use all social media platforms to spew the most vile hateful speech including targeted threats of violence without fear of deplatforming. Not so.

While Jefferson rejected the aristocracy of money, the Koch brothers have taken the lead in organizing it. As a leaked confidential document revealed, they have aggressively courted other billionaires in order to create an organized network of right-wing political funders. Self-love, therefore, is no part of morality.

Indeed, it is exactly its counterpart. Jefferson recognized that the unfettered greed or recklessness of a few needed to be restrained. The Koch Machine rails against taxes, but Jefferson was a strong supporter of progressive taxation as an instrument for reducing inequality. Jefferson was also open to tariffs.
