According to Marx, a social class is a set of individuals with the same relationship to the means of production. Class conflict is usually a reference to a conflict between the proletariat on the one hand and the capitalists and the middle classes on the other hand. Class conflict has been replaced by caste conflict, or rather the battle between those who produce wealth and social services and the parasite class, the caste. The comparison is not simple. Itís not as straight forward as it was in the past: proletariat against capital , but its like the leopardís spots. In fact the castes are everywhere - all around us. They are the cholesterol in the veins and in the arteries of the nation. The castes are united and joined together and they form an immense body, a super social block, that nullifies any push for change. A bulimic rubber wall, that feeds itself with an increase in taxes, in stamp duties, in arbitrary imposts. The State-Caste only talks about taxes, IMU, IVA, IRES, and IRPEF, topics that by now have absorbed every corner of political communications. Blood transfusions from those who produce to those who waste money to keep them alive. The power of the caste does not stem from the control of the means of production, but from the control of the media. Without the daily lies, the caste would be nude and visible in their arrogance and uselessness. Those keeping them alive with massive daily sacrifices would come out into the streets like the people are doing in Egyptís Tahrir Square and Turkeyís Taksim Square. Everywhere thereís a parasitical class, there thereís a caste that uses its nails and its teeth to defend its privilegesThe political caste, the caste of the newspapers, the caste of the bureaucracy, the caste of the public administration, the caste of the useless entities, the caste of the companies partially owned by the State, the caste of the companies managing concessions, the caste of the golden pensions. Infinite castes that strangle the citizen like a boa constrictor. The Italian castes are like a parasite that kills its host organism, and is indifferent to the fact that that way it is also condemning itself. The battle against the castes is the true political battle: take away the power from those that exercise power to perpetuate themselves and their dominating position. Italy is a petrified forest where nothing must change and if it changes, itís only an apparent change, to keep up "democratic" appearances and to keep things unaltered. Immobile. Immutable. Anyone who lives in the forest can make their voice heard, a voice that apparently will be welcomed, to make the person feel free, but it will never be listened to.
