How many people complaining about a struggling Class under Capitalism know?
…that this is actually part of the Communist Manifesto?
I. Bourgeois and Proletarians
The section goes on to argue that the class struggle under capitalism is between those who own the means of production, the ruling class or bourgeoisie, and those who labour for a wage, the working class or proletariat.
“The bourgeoisie, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. It … has left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, than callous “cash payment” … for exploitation, veiled by religious and political illusions, it has substituted naked, shameless, direct, brutal exploitation … Constant revolutionizing of production, uninterrupted disturbance of all social conditions, everlasting uncertainty and agitation distinguish the bourgeois epoch from all earlier ones … All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses, his real conditions of life, and his relations with his kind.”

It’s almost as if Marx traveled in a time machine to modern day America and recorded what he saw.
Why are so many different models lumped under the name of capitalism?
There’s the guy who opens up his own restaurant featuring his own style of cooking.
There’s the corporate franchise that opens 20 locations in a small town featuring identical burgers world-wide
There’s the huge mega-food corporation that exploits third-world countries, replaces family farms with agri-business, and crams gmo franken-foods down our throats
There’s the mutual/hedge fund operations that buy and sell stock in multiple industries.
There’s the WTO that can sue a city, a state, or a nation if they try to outlaw carcinogenic gasoline additives.
There’s the huge investment firms that print their own money by creating caliban instruments like cds & cdo & derivatives having no discernible connection to anything tangible.
We’re being sold a bill of goods by those who try to say it’s all the same “capitalism”
Just because I want to see the incubi from GoldmanSachs &c being dragged naked through the streets doesn’t mean I don’t applaud the entrepreneur opening his own restaurant.
