The establishment, like the deep state, is not a monolith, meaning that, 
as vulgarly conceived, it does not exist, and it never has. Karl Marx 
understood as much. In his analysis of the French coup that brought to 
power a “caricature of the old Napoleon” by the name of Bonaparte, “whom 
even his enemies do not make out to be a sorcerer,” Marx observed that 
it was only through divisions amongst the ruling class that a classless 
usurper—with his “childishly silly proposals”—was able to consolidate 
control over the state.
