  •  British MOD on needed control of middle class (7+ / 0-)

    first edition in 2001 and ideas in line with NSA efforts and treating OWS as terrorists

    have not had a chance to read

    sounds like Cheney's plans

    current edition is at least 2010, maybe 2013 updated version

    need to control the middle class and their protests

    in an article from Guardian in 2007 we find

    "The middle classes could become a revolutionary class, taking the role envisaged for the proletariat by Marx," says the report. The thesis is based on a growing gap between the middle classes and the super-rich on one hand and an urban under-class threatening social order: "The world's middle classes might unite, using access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape transnational processes in their own class interest". Marxism could also be revived, it says, because of global inequality. An increased trend towards moral relativism and pragmatic values will encourage people to seek the "sanctuary provided by more rigid belief systems, including religious orthodoxy and doctrinaire political ideologies, such as popularism and Marxism".

    I have never seen a reference to this document
