Class Struggles

Do check out Mark Steyn again.  On the mark (sorry) as ever, but I especially appreciated this turn of phrase:  The "malign alliance of the statism class and the dependency class currently crushing the Western world."

It occurs to me that the old labels, i.e., the poor, the working class, the middle class (lower and upper), and the wealthy, don't seem to fit anymore.  And especially so in America where everyone fashions themselves middle class or are called as much even if they don't.

So how about, as Steyn suggests, the government (statism) class and the dependency class, who mostly vote the same ("malign alliance") and the productive class?

Works for me.
