Culture War, Class War Intro

Culture War Is Class War

Class War is disguised as Culture War. The Wealthy Elite–the “Filthy Rich”–foment Culture War among the masses to distract and cover their real economic motives.

Culture War, Class War explores the resulting cultural divide and how it was instigated and kept alive for fifty years in America by certain elite powers and how and why they choose to benefit while tearing families in two and keeping America paralyzed.

This website looks into why America’s “privileged class”its “royalty,” “blue bloods”started a “culture war” against the middle class, working class, the poor…and the educated, artists, and RichestPulledAwayhumanists in the early 1970s. We discover how their fear of Sixties activism panicked them into an all-out assault against elements that threatened their wealth and privilege in all institutions of American societymedia, education, medicine, government, politics, publication, religion, especially higher education, and so onand restructured them.

Finally, we see how this culture war continues today: blatantly so in the Tea Party movement, the Republican Party, the Wall Street giveaways at the expense of jobs, tax cuts for the “filthy rich” and corporations, budget battles and cuts in government services and entitlement programs, rampant anti-environmentalism, and anti-minority, anti-immigrant laws and attacks.

TaxCutsVsBudgetCutsFor example, we see rabid culture war/class war in the abortion debate; attacks on unions in Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, and many other states; ever shrinking civil and human rights, including suspension of habeas corpus; runaway imprisonment of minorities and free-thinkers through egregious anti-drug and anti-sex/anti-gender laws; indefinite imprisonment without trial and torture of political prisoners; and much, much more. A few recent examples of the extremes of this attack include politicians like Congressman Barton who kowtow to corporations, even defending British Petroleum from having to pay for its atrocious oil spill, and a candidateRepublican of coursefor the Arizona Senator’s race who actually ran on the platform of doing away with Social Security and Medicare.
