Yanis Varoufakis, new finance minister of Greece:
“About a year ago, I was having lunch with member of House of Lords and he said to me, “Listen, after 1945 WE made huge concessions to THEM. We allowed THEM a national health service. Later on we even built universities for THEIR children and we paid for them. After 1991 there was no longer any reason for doing it and we stopped.”
Here, here, Lord Snout-in-trough! There is “WE” and there is “THEM”. Mitt Romney’s statement that 47% of Americans are hopelessly irresponsible and worthless is in the long tradition of (what you cannot call) Class Warfare, because that’s a commie phrase.
Because Marx talked about class struggle, there must be no such thing as class struggle, because we all know (though we have never read Marx) that he was always wrong. He never said a true thing in his whole life! When he said, “Jenny, let the dog out, he’s gotta go,” he was wrong-because he was Marx.
Don’t talk about WE and THEM. Naughty, naughty. That sort of talk is reserved for Economic Royalty, snuggled in the bowels of their posh clubs, brandy in one hand and pricey cigar in the other.
