Karl Marx's Manifesto On Modern America

"The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggle. Freeman and slave, lord and serf, capitalist and proletariat, in a word oppressor and oppressed, stand in opposition to each other and carry on a constant fight. In the information age, in which knowledge is power and money, the class struggle is fought between the educated elite and the undereducated masses."

Ouch. Are you trembling yet Martin? There might be some good reasons in this for you to change your views. In all seriousness, I'm pretty impressed with that rant. I do wonder if it found its way onto that particular journalists page in the manner he claims, but it isn't like he can come out and say that sort of thing and keep his job, or life as such. I'm heartened to see that there are still some Reds under the bed. There is something in this that will upset almost every political persuasion.
I wonder how the relavent socio-economic statistics in Australia stack up now, and how they will look in 10 years time?
