We are a classless knock-off society

Daily Kos :: State of the Nation: "I've come to believe that this 'fuzzy middle' myth that has no real meaning in relationship to power hierarchies or dynamics is probably one of our greatest obstacles against working for meaningful change and redistribution of wealth."

It is pricing and alleged value that now defines us all. Class is meaningless and has been so for decades. Marx was wrong in his analysis but right on this conclusion. Capitalism creates and maintains the knock off society where cost is a function of wealth not utility and in some cases not of quality. Only when hurt is real does what used to be class emerge.
