  1. Reading Steve at the Pub makes me realise that class war is only practiced by those who seek more if they are poor and relatively powerless. If you are not poor, and have a lot, complaining about those who have less, and finding ways to take what they have from them, is not class war, it is just sensible and rational economics. I get it now.
