It’s Still Class Warfare

Pretend All You Like, It’s Still Class Warfare by DAVID MACARAY It’s an old joke, but it bears repeating: An Oxford professor meets a former student on the street. He asks what he’s been up to lately. The student tells him he’s working on a doctoral thesis about the survival of the class system in the United States. The professor expresses surprise. “I didn’t think there was a class system in the United States,” he says. “Nobody does,” the student replies. “That’s how it survives.” The growing chasm [...]

Unfettered Corporate Greed

5 Ways America Is Being Hollowed Out by Unfettered Corporate Greed Paul Buchheit There's no free market -- just businesses doing whatever they please with virtually zero accountability. Conservatives believe that enriching individuals will eventually enrich society, and that government should not get in the way of the process. This is what happens as a result: (1) The tax loss from one scheming businessman could have paid the salaries of 30,000 nurses The lack of regulation in the financial industry allowed hedge fund manager John Paulson to [...]

Corporate Fascism

Corporate Fascism By John Johnson    The current media onslaught of political mud slinging and hate-based self-promotion (“I’m tougher on immigration than my opponent,” for example) is beyond absurdist/comical.   The world totters at the edge of disastrous climate change. Wall Street, banks and corporations are putting the cash they swindled into Cayman island accounts, destroying most of the world’s economies. Including our own.   The war against women, abortion and contraception is just another sideshow, but is, in the meantime, putting the lives of women and [...]

The Abandoned Class

NYPD purposely runs over an Occupier The Abandoned Class by Robert C. Koehler Will Occupy Wall Street hold together long enough to cut to the deep chase? Will it find a voice to articulate not merely the pain of the struggling middle class but the endemic unfairness and racism of inescapable poverty? “Everyone is important,” read the sign of an elderly protester. My God, what if it were true? What if we could see, in the desperate thrashing of the abandoned class, everyone’s future, that of the [...]

Class Warfare

By John Johnson During the past few months leading up to the mid-term elections, we have experienced some of the most blatant acts of class warfare in recent memory. And they won’t stop no matter the outcome. A small example is Joe Miller, the Republican Senate candidate from Alaska, whose private guards roughed up, handcuffed and detained Alaska Dispatch blogger Tony Hopfinger as he tried to ask the candidate a question at a forum in a public school, later described dishonestly by Miller’s people as a “private [...]

Class Warfare 2

By Laurence Lewis It’s not class warfare. Don’t you dare call it class warfare. The Republicans may relentlessly pursue policies that favor the wealthy and hurt everyone else, but it most emphatically is not class warfare. The arbiters of appropriate political discourse will be most put out if you call it class warfare. You will not be welcome in the Village. You will not be invited to appear on the Sunday talk shows. Class warfare is such an ugly term. To begin with, it suggests that we [...]
