If you have government, you have a ruling class, by definition. No, I'm not talking about governance, the sort we see in managing property, a business, a charity, or any other private organization. A ruling class are those who calls themselves "government" or "the state", or in some times and places "the church", the organization(s) in society whose sole purpose of existing is to make and enforce rules, the first of which involve the generation of "revenue". While that's what the ruling class does, that's not what the ruling class is. Here is the essence of what the ruling class is.

In light of the many and varied types of unfairness that both men and women endure today and have endured throughout history, I can't say that one gender has been treated more unfairly than the other. Both are and have been treated like shit for the benefit of others. But maybe we can agree that the one group of people that is and has been treated the most unfairly... is children.

My three-year-old is full of life and has a great, fresh sense of humor. Her favorite word, if you ask her, is "fuck!" She uses it quite often, much to the delight of myself and her older siblings. A few weeks ago, she started spitting. This doesn't seem uncommon for little kids. They eventually discover the process and she found some joy in it. So much so, that she thought she'd share it with me, and spit right on my face.
