more people have died in the class war than in any other war

A friend said he didn't like the term "class war." The friend makes what Americans call "good money"; I completely understand why he doesn't like the term.

But the class war has been waged for as long as there have been classes. Every war that has ever been fought was only a skirmish in the class war. Everyone who has suffered because wealth wasn't shared is a victim of the class war. Everyone who benefits from the class war is a war criminal or a collaborator.

Yes, those are ugly metaphors. But the deaths in the class war are real, no matter how much the rich try to ignore or excuse them.
