Melleuish, G. (2012). ‘Class warfare’ or not, Australia has moved on from Labor’s old-fashioned rhetoric. The Conversation, (14 May)

Abstract

“Class warfare” is an emotive term that would seem to belong to a bygone age when there also existed, as in the minds of many people, something called the “class struggle”.

It would seem strange that in age when blue-collar jobs seem to be always in decline that anyone should be referring to “class warfare”. The classes of an earlier age are no more. Australia is a different country to what it was in the 1930s and 1940s.
