View Full Version : Know Your Enemies :The Four Post-Marxist Social Classes

There are four major social classes in the post-Marxist system.

(1) The Parasite Class

Liberal Word Games :Political Correctness is Cultural Marxism .

This class creates a negative value for society because they suck up more value from society than they create through their labor. It includes not just people in prison and people collecting welfare, but the working poor as well. In the United States, government spending per capita exceeds $20,000 per year, so the way I see it, a person who makes less than $20,000 per year is most likely creating less value than he sucks out of the system. Now it’s true that the person earning $20,000 per year is actually creating more value than his salary because some of the value he creates has been transferred to the value transference class before he receives his paycheck, but the working poor also tend to use up more government services than people in the higher classes; their low class behaviors place greater burdens on the police, they receive various public benefits because society deems them too poor to get by on their own, and their children are more expensive to educate because they are “at risk” and cause behavior problems in the schools, etc. Additionally, their low class behaviors create negative externalities, imposed mostly on the class immediately above it, the proletariat. snip

2) The Proletariat

This is the modern-day laboring class, not too much different than Karl Marx’s proletariat. This class has a higher IQ than the parasite class below it, but a lower IQ than the college graduate class above it.

This class is predominately a value creation class. Being even minimally successful at legal forms of value transference requires higher IQ than most people in proletariat possess. Maybe some people from this class are working as car salesmen are in other low-paying value transference jobs, but for the most part the men from this class do traditional blue collar work, and the women do low-paying office work, retail work, or medical work.snip
(3) The College Graduate Class

This class has a higher IQ than the proletariat, and the overlap in IQ with the class below it is rather minimal. Most people whose IQ is high enough to graduate from college do so. And the proletariat contains many people who started college, but their IQ just wasn’t high enough for them to last long enough to graduate.

This class is the most productive class in terms of value creation, which explains why they have higher incomes than the proletariat. In a modern society such as we live in, value creation requires a high IQ. At the top end of this class are people making six figure salaries doing technical work like engineering or computer programming. This class includes middle management, but not upper management.

Compared to the class below, a higher percentage of the work done by this class is value transference work, but members of this class are not successful enough at transferring value to themselves in order to be part of the value transference class. They may make work in value transference industries like finance or advertising, but they get paid regular cubicle-worker salaries. snip
4) The Value Transference Class

At the top of the Marxist class structure was a class called the bourgeois or the capitalists. This class owned the “means of production,” and thus they profited from the labor of the proletariat. The “means of production” meant owning a factory.

There are some members of the value transference class class who own factories, but what has changed since Marx’s day is that owning factories is no longer the primary means by which members of the value transference class transfer value. What we can say is that members of this class have value transference capital, and it’s this value transference capital which allows this class to be far richer than the value they create with their labor.

There is some value transference capital which can be bought and sold. You can buy or sell a value transference business, which I define as any business which primarily makes money by transferring value rather than by creating it. But much value transference capital is human capital. The CEO of a corporation has a great deal of value transference human capital. He is unable to sell his CEOship, but as long as he works as the CEO, he transfers value from the corporation’s employees and shareholders to himself.

People will say, “Half Sigma has become a leftist because he sounds like he is sympathetic to Marxism!” But is Half Sigma really a leftist for writing this?

Much of my analysis is based on the innate genetic IQ differences between the post-Marxist classes, and leftists are the people who are outraged at the idea that group differences in IQ are responsible for group differences in outcomes.

Furthermore, as I’ve pointed out before, the modern left is no longer very much concerned with issues of class struggle. Instead, their focus is on egalitarian issues such as affirmative action and gay marriage, and on promoting the new religion of Gaia worship. In the last presidential election, Obama carried the majority of the value transference class.
