Unlike Most Marxist Jargon, ‘Class Warfare’ Persists : NPR
And I think this objectivity/emotion thing is “age-related” in the Western World. Those who aren’t Baby Boomers haven’t been raised with the fear and real threat of Communism.
In fact, “class warfare” is just about the only phrase in American political discourse where “class” can appear without the all-forgiving prefix “middle.” People who level the charge of class warfare never go the logical next step to extol the virtues of class cooperation. That would imply that there actually are classes in America and would undermine the ideal of a land of opportunity. As the story goes, there are only two kinds of Americans — those who are already rich and those who expect to be. That’s why Americans won’t tolerate tax-the-rich proposals that pit one group against another, when we should be all in it together.
