once more comes "the final conflict " ???

"Significantly more Americans see "very strong" or "strong" class conflict between the rich and poor, according to a survey released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center. The results show that Americans think that conflicts between the rich and poor are stronger than immigrant and native born, black and white and young and old."

"In 2009, 47 percent of respondents said there were "very strong" or "strong" conflicts between the rich and poor. In 2011, 66 percent...The perception of class conflict has also intensified -- 30 percent see "very strong conflicts," a figure that doubled from 2009......possibly signaling that the "We are the 99 percent" rhetoric of Occupy Wall Street has had an impact ....Young people -- suffering the highest levels of unemployment -- see class conflict significantly more than older people, with 71 percent of people aged 18 to 34 seeing "very strong" or "strong" class conflicts while just 55 percent of people over 65 see them......whites had significantly larger increases in perception of class conflict than blacks and hispanics, "

Just one maggoty old caribou culled from the herd, but does value these fleeting reminders of the thrill of the hunt...


The balls are in your court, OWS supporters like the SMBIVA crowd - where's the "Occupation" movement now, boyee?
Judging by an echt Naomi Klein rappin' with some OWS dude rev-comm mike-swap over at the suddenly-still dead Nation, it's pure sparklepony time:
"I think there is more possibility right now than I could have ever imagined. I think in the not-so-distant future, we can win a lot of things that actually improve people’s lives, we can continue to change the political landscape, and we can grow into a mass movement with the strength to propose another kind of world and also fight for it. I think we’re only in the beginning of that, and I think there is a ton of potential. And I also see that kind of possibility in the long term."
OK, kid, you shall overcome, capital's going down, we're going to speed-reverse postindustrial civilization, but in the meantime, you're running low on minutes...

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
