    Do you really think politicians' worldviews vary much? Both parties see this as a class war.

    Watch some debates, political shows such as Meet the Press, and other political propaganda. Now,

    Every time they say 'the rich', 'the top x%' or other such things, replace it with 'Bourgeoisie',

    Every time they say 'small business owners', replace it with 'petty bourgeoisie',

    Every time they say 'the working class' or 'middle class', replace it with 'proletariat',

    Every time they talk about criminals, welfare recipients, et al, replace it with 'lumpenproletariat'


    Now, when we all use the same synonyms, do we find anything new in the materials studied?
