It's the economy, stupid.

Check out Jim Webb’s piece in the WSJ.

Many WSJ readers will no doubt call this a declaration of class war. Well, I would say that would more accurately be labeled as a declaration of the end of the unilateral disarmament of one side in the ongoing class war that has been going on.

The sooner this country wakes up and realizes (especially those on the left, or those concerned with human rights) that in our system, economic rights translate into civil rights, this becomes even more important. We can read PC demagogery all we want about how we joke about disadvantaged groups, but until those groups gain the economic wherewithal to wage their own fight, they’ll never matter.

For every minority, it’s the economy.
