It appears that an angry faculty lounge member of the Obama Administration in trying to change his beating intellectually at the hands of Tucker Carlson at another forum and took to his blog to make the points he missed. What he missed and “forgot” to actually pull from in his “experience” is Karl Marx, you see Obama and company are nothing if not true Marxists. They have learned it well at the hands of their colleges and they built upon in true Alinsky style in the neighborhoods. They recognize that class warfare can only be fought if they anger one group against another, or create a victim group out of whole cloth. These are sick and deranged people, they have the reigns of power in our beautiful America, we need to take them back Rick Bookstaber, who is a Senior Policy Adviser to the Financial Stability Oversight Council
During the industrial revolution class warfare centered on the length of the working day. A tightly defined working day only appeared with the advent of the industrial revolution. Before then laborers worked when they needed money, and then quit for a time once they fulfilled their needs. But regimentation and a dependable workforce became necessary once there was machinery to run and capital invested, and so with industrialization came the an enforced workday. So it is not surprising that Marx stated the central battle of class warfare at the time in terms of the working day:
“The capitalist maintains his rights as a purchaser when he tries to make the working-day as long as possible, and to make, whenever possible, two working-days out of one. On the other hand, the peculiar nature of the commodity sold implies a limit to its consumption by the purchaser, and the laborer maintains his right as seller when he wishes to reduce the working-day to one of definite normal duration. There is here, therefore, an antinomy, right against right, both equally bearing the seal of the law of exchanges. Between equal rights force decides. Hence is it that in the history of capitalist production, the determination of what is a working-day, presents itself as the result of a struggle, a struggle between collective capital, i.e., the class of capitalists, and collective labour, i.e., the working-class. – Marx, Das Kapital”
