Race, Gender & Class Struggle

Program #PARM026. Recorded in Arcata, CA on April 09, 2006.

Albert Einstein once said that it is easier to split the atom than to crack a prejudice. Prejudices abound about all cultures and societies. In the U.S., we pretend there is no class or that we are almost all satisfied members of the middle-class. Class struggle? What's that about? Are you some kind of Marxist? The evidence is clear and unambiguous. There is massive and growing inequality and huge disparities in wages and benefits. The average CEO earns $42,000 a day. Wall Street bankers and traders are getting year-end bonuses of up to $50 million. When the privileges of the ruling class are not being justified, their existence is being denied. And the politicians, with some exceptions, enable the rich in amassing ever more wealth.
