Who's Winning The Class Wars?

Keep in mind that the US doesn't even mention the term "class."  But social classes still exist, and something like a class war is an ongoing project.  As long as the top classes are safely winning we don't hear it called "war," by the way.  Just the way things are.

But the recent increases in wealth and income inequality have made the class wars more visible.  I write about the language of the right in this post from last fall

And this is what has been happening about income inequality more recently:  Even the Democrats can't agree whether it's good to talk about it or not.  Probably because politics runs on donations and richer people can donate more.
