Class Warfare: Financial Interests, Funds, and Tax Codes


Class conflict, frequently referred to as class warfare or class struggle, is the tension or antagonism which exists in society due to competing socioeconomic interests in between men and women of different classes. Class conflict can take several distinct forms: direct violence, such as wars fought for resources and low-cost labor indirect violence, such as deaths from poverty, starvation, illness or unsafe functioning circumstances coercion, such as the threat of losing a job or pulling an essential investment or ideology, either intentionally (as with books and articles marketing capitalism) or unintentionally (as with the promotion of consumerism by way of advertising). In addition, political types of class conflict exist legally or illegally lobbying or bribing government leaders for passage of partisan desirable legislation such as labor laws, tax codes, customer laws, acts of congress or other sanction, injunction or tariff. The conflict can be open, as with a lockout aimed at destroying a labor union, or hidden, as with an informal slowdown in production protesting low wages or unfair labor practices. In the previous the phrase Class conflict was a term used largely by socialists, who define a class by its partnership to the indicates of production — such as factories, land and machinery. From this point of view, the social manage of production and labor is a contest between classes, and the division of these sources necessarily includes conflict and inflicts harm.

Corporations are the ones that provide the monies for pensions of union retirees. Even if you own a simple life insurance policy you are a participant and also benefit from their investments in corporations. Don’t let your envy for those who do better money wise. Cloud your judgement. I don’t think you can ever count on getting a job from a poor man.

If the American people could think in a logical way they would not be clamoring for higher taxes for the so called wealthy. The ones who provide all the money are sure to have more clout. The more money they provide the more attention they get. So….the wealthy will have even more power. Thanks to those who want to relieve them of their dollars.

I feel that the American people have come to accept the fact that lobbyists and money control Washington. They accept it, and they feel that it is at least moderately acceptable, just “the way it is.”
