: I think socialists should be less worried about capitalism and more worried about anything that simply isnt socialism, I mean if you get locked into this whole puesdo-marxist critic of capitalism alone how do you fight against pre-capitalist or post capitalist oppression?

SDF: Well, in the category of marxist critique of capitalism, there's the theory of social classes, I dunno, it seems a lot better than just splitting the income curve into levels. You know, the idea of "middle class" as measured as, say, above $15,000 yearly gross income for a family of four and below $75,000 per year as Paul Samuelson does in ECONOMICS (13th edition)...

Folks, there's two classes in the theory of class society. Can you name them?
