In the past eighty years Democrats chose to use the rhetoric of Marxism to construct an entitlement state. Since FDR the Democrat Party has also used its political power to expand government’s control of all aspects of life. This expansion has long outgrown its mission of reducing exploitation of workers and has created a new form of social exploitation. In short, Democrats have replaced Marx’s two classes, the bourgeoisie and proletariat, with two new, different classes based on government control of the economy and society. These two Democrat-created classes are the Democrat Bourgeoisie and the Entitlementariat.
To test if this Marxist view of the Democrats’ entitlement economy fits the economic and social facts, it is useful to review the social and economic status of the Democrat bourgeoisie and the entitlementariat.
The entitlementariat may have replaced the proletariat but then one can ask if Marx’s bourgeoisie has been replaced by the Democrat Bourgeoisie. The answer is “yes” since Democrats, not Republicans, have created the entitlementariat and they have complete power over them. And just by coincidence they use this power to transfer the wealth of the nation to themselves through campaign contributors from public sector unions and accumulation of personal wealth.
Everywhere Democrat bourgeoisie are in power, the middle-class workers are exploited and subjugated, while those who are in poverty are forced into the entitlementariat. In Illinois, a prime example of a state dominated by Democrats, we can see what Democrats have done to transfer wealth away from the middle class in order to make themselves elite bourgeoisie and support the entitlementariat. Each household in Chicago now “owes” the Democrat bourgeoisie $88,000 for their pensions and bond debt. This amount increases weekly. And most of this debt was created through public pension funds that go only to members of the Democrat bourgeoisie. So middle-class workers have to subsidize the Democrat bourgeoisie’ retirement of leisure. Elite Democrat Bourgeoisie such as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and the Clintons all earn millions through their government “service.”
Up to now, since America is a wealthy country, it was temporarily able to afford to subsidize the entitlementariat. But no longer. The money needed to sustain the entitlementariat is obtained from national debt which will, in the long run, result in the oppression of the working class.
