The Marxist epiphany of the ruling elite, as Chomsky reminds us, is that nations are no longer relevant.
We find this precept illustrated perfectly by an “honest” investor, referred to on this page, who forthrightly confesses that, should tax rates on the wealthy rise too high for his taste — should they, indeed, merely return to their traditional levels throughout most of the post-World War II period — he will simply transfer his operations to the United Arab Emirates.
No victims of the “patriotic” propaganda that the more thoughtful of them fund as being incalculably helpful to their class, the elite are realists. They understand — almost “instinctively,” for their existence relies upon it — the central facts: that there is and always has been a class war; and that to win it, they must maintain class unity across the spurious barriers of nations and their professed creeds, and prevent the lower classes from doing the same.
We, whom the elites sunder into armies of pawns to be pitted against one another in the mortal chess game by whose results vital resources are won and lost, would do well not to forget this.
