Ep131: Class Conflict Clarity

After a week off I return by wrapping up the topic from last time, namely debunking Micheal Lind and the myth of a professional class, then the original article pointing out the capitalists far away are easier to fight than the ones in town. In the 2nd half I shift to discussing the ‘worker shortage’ with coverage of the latest strike-wave, a Liberals observations, and the insanity of hiring practices. More like a shortage of suckers grinding for the man, Amma-rite?
