Using Marx To Understand Welfare State

Over at, in an article, Michael Bargo, Jr. dissects how Welfare State has created Marx style two classes of exploited and exploiters:


“Through these tactics Democrats have moved the pendulum of exploitation away from the Marxist private sector back to the public sector. Like the Medieval power structure, Democrats base theirs on political boundaries which allows them to the electorate, and the more the electorate are forced to become members of the urban entitlementariat the more power Democrats have.

The entitlementariat may have replaced the proletariat but then one can ask if Marx’s bourgeoisie has been replaced by the Democrat Bourgeoisie. The answer is “yes” since Democrats, not Republicans, have created the entitlementariat and they have complete power over them. And just by coincidence they use this power to transfer the wealth of the nation to themselves through campaign contributors from public sector unions and accumulation of personal wealth.

Everywhere Democrat bourgeoisie are in power, the middle-class workers are exploited and subjugated, while those who are in poverty are forced into the entitlementariat. In Illinois, a prime example of a state dominated by Democrats, we can see what Democrats have done to transfer wealth away from the middle class in order to make themselves elite bourgeoisie and support the entitlementariat. Each household in Chicago now “owes” the Democrat bourgeoisie $88,000 for their pensions and bond debt. This amount increases weekly. And most of this debt was created through public pension funds that go only to members of the Democrat bourgeoisie. So middle-class workers have to subsidize the Democrat bourgeoisie’ retirement of leisure. Elite Democrat Bourgeoisie such as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and the Clintons all earn millions through their government “service.” (from the article)
