Faith is not certainty so much as it is acting-as-if in great hope.
Yes it is indeed class warfare. And we're losing the war.
Paul (A.), I'm afraid you're right.
But it's NOT Class Warfare (two combatants).It's Class Massacre [I would know: I'm in the massacred side. :-( ]
I'm with JCF. I'm reminded of Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class: ". . but I wouldn't call it a 'war,' exactly. 'War' implies both sides have an equal chance of winning."
Warren Buffet would agree with JCF.
Well, it's surely not a fair fight. It's the big bullies against the little guys.
It definitely is not a fair fight.
What frightens me - as much because of my own morbid curiosity and secret delight in the idea - is that there are a lot more of the poor than the rich, and . . . well, I'm sure the words "Bastille Day" might give a clue as to my worries. Poor people, desperate, ignored and driven to the wall, will become an indiscriminate and murderous mob fairly quickly. It's only in hindsight that those mobs are given the generous term "revolutionary."
Mark, you know me and my decided aversion to any talk of violence. Having said that, I believe that the have-nots will not put up with the broadening inequality forever.
I'm not advocating, simply stating what I believe will happen. When I confess my horror at my own twinge of pleasure at the idea, it's only to keep myself honest.
