In H.G. Wells “The Time Machine”, the future is populated by the bifurcated evolution of the human race into the Morlocks and the Eloi. The Eloi live an apparently care-free life, above ground, in the light, and are, seemingly, nurtured by the Morlocks. However, the truth is far more horrific. The Morlock – Eloi relationship is one of ranchers and livestock, the Eloi being the latter. The Morlocks periodically summon a portion of the Eloi, take their pleasure from them and then feed on the remains.
This is the true Liberal vision for their America. They (the Liberals, the Government) are to be the Morlocks, we (the ordinary citizens, aka the mud people) are to be the Eloi.
