Liberals, as guardians of the status quo, are class warriors on the side of economic mal-distribution and the immiseration of the labouring classes and poor for the benefit of the rich.

Excerpt:

Where economic power translates to political power, economic power frames the discourse. As the facts have it, this intersection finds the non-racist owners and senior managers of America's dominant institutions being the major campaign contributors to both political Parties and thereby setting both the political and economic agendas of the nation. From this perspective racism is difficult to resolve because it requires the redistribution of social power. And it is this mal-distribution of social power that is the effective residual of the pre-modern past.
