Dregs on show 5/11/2014
A lifetime friend – a legal academic and orthodox Marxist – reflected recently that the Left’s leadership had changed from decent men and women to thugs and hate-filled pseudo intellectuals.
It’s a deterioration best described in the words of the late Kim Beazley snr: “When I joined the Labor Party, it contained the cream of the working class. But as I look about me now all I see are the dregs of the middle class. And what I want to know is when you middle class perverts are going to stop using the Labor Party as a spiritual spittoon.”
Events today support this position. It’s certainly clear they wouldn’t know much about class struggle – they haven’t got any. Class that is.
