Let"s simplify things. Karl Marx identified the bourgeoisie and proletariat. Then he pointed to the conflict between them and he pointed out that the bourgeoisie controlled the means of productions etc. etc. The oppressors and the oppressed.

Okay.

So now we have the Cultural Marxists. For some reason, they seem to have replaced the bourgeoisie with "white middle-aged men" and the proletariat with "everyone who isn"t white middle-aged men". The new oppressors and the new oppressed.

Okay.

And so you hear mantras like "white middle-aged men have all the power". Yes, many company directors in Europe are white middle-aged men. So are many garbage collectors. So are many plumbers, miners, taxi-drivers and factory workers.

But it sure makes it easy to be a rich and privileged, bourgeois Marxist, as long as you vilify these white middle aged-men, doesn"t it?

Only it"s based on a lie.

The bourgeoisie, by definition, actually did control things. If you were a poor worker with no power, you didn"t belong to the bourgeoisie. You couldn"t. You were the oppressed proletariat. And if you were from the bourgeoisie, you couldn"t claim to be part of the oppressed. However much you wished you could. It was clear. It was logical. And it was true. So "most company directors are white middle-aged men" means that "most white middle aged-men are company directors"? Far from it!

The Queen of England is a grey haired woman. Does that mean that all grey-haired women are the Queen of England?

Are you familiar with the term "scapegoat"?

So we point the finger at the percent of a percent of white middle aged-men in Europe who are actually company directors and then by interpolation, blame white middle-aged men for all the ills of the world. It"s a familiar tactic. Hitler identified rich Jewish industrialists and blamed them and them alone for all of Germany"s problems. Then, he expediently redefined all Jews as being the same kind of "villains of international capitalism". And he did this while conveniently ignoring the vast majority of working-class Jews who didn"t fit the bill as international capitalists. And by ignoring those international capitalists who were in fact "Aryan".

So what do we learn from all this? We learn that it"s very easy to manipulate the truth and manufacture group identities to fit your needs when you are a power hungry, egotistical bastard. It was true in Hitler"s day. And it is true today.

But we need nice, convenient dogmas to be wielded like an axe for today"s Cultural Marxist fairy tale. Only in this fairy tale, maybe the woodcutter isn"t quite as nice and benevolent as he"s made out to be. And neither perhaps is the big bad wolf as bad as he"s painted. Just as it was back in the 1930s, it depends on who"s telling you the story.

Now while he stands tough
Notice that this man did not have his hands up
This free world got you gased up
Now who's afraid of the big bad wolf

But I know something about you
You went to Cranbrook, that's a private school
What's the matter dawg? You embarrassed?
This guy's a gangster? he's real name's Clarence

And Clarence lives at home with both parents
And Clarence's parents have a real good marriage
This guy don't wanna battle, He's shook
'Cause there no such things as half-way crooks
He's scared to death
He's scared to look in his f*cking yearbook, f*ck Cranbrook
