Class Warfare in 2012. Ho, Ho, Ho
The media are filled with stories claiming that the Obama vs. Romney race is all about class warfare. I have my doubts. Here is why.
Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, in their then-anonymous tract, The Manifesto of the Communist Party (1848), began chapter 1 with these words: “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.”
You would be hard-pressed to find any theory of history more wrong-headed than this one.
