This screen shot from a youtube.com posted US military video taken after WWII shows German Nationals, put out on the street by the Allies.
There will be an ironic justice to seeing these murderous pigs (the Allies considered ALL the German people responsible for the war, the horrible travesties committed" Every German was considered to have to take the blame. The German state had brainwashed even the children to worship Hitler and to be committed to dying for the "Motherland."
I know I'm being harsh. These people may even be your neighbors. They may seem nice. But they are warriors profiting from the spoils of the class war. They have gotten their spoils because millions of families lost their homes, tens if not hundreds of thousands died for lack of adequate health care or food or shelter. Part of the challenge in wrapping your head around the class war is facing the reality that the enemy is not an ugly troll, she can be a pretty, well dressed blonde with a platinum credit card and a comfy home with a $4000 or $6000 or $10,000 a month mortgage or rental payment and an $800 monthly payment for their Mercedes or Lexus or BMW lease.
Then, there's the question of WHO? Who will we identify as the enemy, as the people who will be punished-- imprisoned, skinned alive for ALL their assets? Who are the most obvious enemies? Bankers, Finance millionaires, lobbyists, organizations that have worked on the behalf of millionaires and big corporations, and lets not forget legislators who have left congress to become wealthy lobbyists.
Of course, you might argue that current laws protect assets like homes and retirement funds. Those laws are actually part of the weaponry that has been used against the middle class. And why should the apply to criminals who got their homes and retirement nest eggs through war crimes.
OK, sure, I"m going over the top, jumping the shark. But the tendency, by far, is for limp liberals to make apologies for the enemy. They don't even think about reparations and punishments. They just want to make things nicer and fairer. i think we need to aim higher, with the realization that you usually aim higher than you settle for.
The bottom line is that the war against the middle class is being funded by the wealthy and by big corporations. They are setting the world on a non-sustainable trajectory that will not support most of humanity and which will wipe out tens of thousands of species.
We have to fight back and fight back hard. Thinking about fighting hard, it can help to remember how victors have death strongly with the evil people they conquered. Not comfortable with characterizing the enemy as evil? Get over it.
