Political Cartoons and Political Commentary
Can you explain this cartoon? I would expect a Socialist level as opposed to Marxist. I understand the "class struggle" issue, but Obama's government-run healthcare & "tax the wealthy" ideas smack of wanting the middle class (Proletariat) to replace the wealthy (bourgeoisie) and end the "class state" (communism) thus destroying capitalism ( a Marxist ideal). Why did you chose Marxism?
Although I'm supporting Obama this year, this cartoon makes a legitimate point about the issues. It's a bit over the top, of course, but hey, that's what political cartoons are all about.On the other hand, his ears seem to be getting bigger as the cartoons progress.-James
Yes, I had a choice of level lables. Capitalism seems to be the target, the elite will not want to give up status.The ears were easier to enlarge than having a nose grow longer as campaign rhetoric increases.
