Class Consciousness

Class consciousness is the idea used by Karl Marx to mean that the lower orders, the poor were victims of the bourgeois, the rich, the Capitalist Swine. He thought that the workers should rise up, take over the means of production then live happily ever after. In the Communist Manifesto he wrote:-

The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win

It did not happen but it sounded plausible to a lot of people at the time. Lurking behind the idea is a decent instinct; Altruism, caring for the underdog, the small, weak, oppressed. It is something that is abused by the cunning, repackaged into Pathological Altruism

Mothers in particular care about their babies. They also wish the best for other people's children but not to the same extent. This has been turned into Guilt, in particular Western Guilt, the claim that Europeans, that Western Civilization generally has victimized people of the Third World. This particular story is based on corrupt history teaching, emphasizing the bad, hiding the good. It worked. The originators of this movement, the Frankfurt School are largely Jews. Their attack is driven by Fear, Paranoia, Hate & Racism. They use the  Holocaust® Story in their marketing. It may be some Jews believe it. They certainly have made a lot of money from it. Once politicians and such like have fallen for the racism line it became possible to flood England with millions of Third World incomers. This is Ethnic Fouling which leads to Ethnic Cleansing, then Genocide.

Anyone who does not believe in class consciousness is alleged to be a victim of False Consciousness, the idea that dissenters are stupid. It implies that The Left Wing Establishment think they are Morally superior to us.


Class Consciousness ex Wiki
Class consciousness is a term used in social sciences and political theory, particularly Marxism, to refer to the beliefs that a person holds regarding one's social class or economic rank in society, the structure of their class, and their class interests.

Marxist theory
While German theorist Karl Marx rarely used the term "class consciousness", he did make the distinction between "class in itself", which is defined as a category of people having a common relation to the means of production, and a "class for itself", which is defined as a stratum organized in active pursuit of its own interests.[2]

Defining a person's social class can be a determinant for his awareness of it. Marxists define classes on the basis of their relation to the means of production – especially on whether they own capital. Non-Marxist social scientists distinguish various social strata on the basis of income, occupation, or status.[3]

Early in the nineteenth century, the labels "working classes" and "middle classes" were already coming into common usage. "The old hereditary aristocracy, reinforced by the new gentry who owed their success to commerce, industry, and the professions, evolved into an "upper class". Its consciousness was formed in part by public schools (in the British sense) and Universities. The upper class tenaciously maintained control over the political system, depriving not only the working classes but the middle classes of a voice in the political process."

Georg Lukács' History and Class Consciousness (1923)
Class consciousness, as described by [ the Jew ], Georg Lukács's famous History and Class Consciousness (1923), is opposed to any psychological conception of consciousness, which forms the basis of individual or mass psychology (see  [ the Jew ], Freud or,  before him, Gustave Le Bon). According to Lukács, each social class has a determined class consciousness which it can achieve. In effect, as opposed to the liberal conception of consciousness as the basis of individual freedom and of the social contract, Marxist class consciousness is not an origin, but an achievement (i.e. it must be "earned" or won). Hence, it is never assured: the proletariat's class consciousness is the result of a permanent struggle to understand the "concrete totality" of the historical process.[citation needed]................

Non-Marxists have criticized class consciousness on a variety of grounds.

Economist Ludwig Von Mises[6] argued that “Marx confus[ed] the notions of caste and class.” Mises allowed that class consciousness, and the associated class struggle, were valid concepts in some circumstances where rigid social castes exist; e.g., when slavery is legal, and slaves thus share a common motive for ending their disadvantaged status relative to other castes. “But no such conflicts are present in a society in which all citizens are equal before the law,” according to Mises. “No logical objection can be advanced against distinguishing various classes among the members of such a society. Any classification is logically permissible, however arbitrarily the mark of distinction may be chosen. But it is nonsensical to classify the members of a capitalistic society according to their position in the framework of the social division of labor and then to identify these classes with the castes of a status society.”
We are allowed to take this kind of drivel seriously. The sane response is get to the core argument then know it is worthless. Try reading Das Kapital then wonder why people take it seriously. Also wonder whether Marx knew what he was talking about.
