The history of all previous societies has been the history of class struggles
- Karl Marx
Marx's prediction that capitalism would lead to an ever-increasing concentration of wealth in the hands of a tiny minority and the increased exploitation of the vast majority worldwide is graphically borne out by the reality at the beginning of the 21st century.
Capital has been concentrated in fewer and fewer hands at the same time as it has grown beyond the wildest dreams of the Victorian capitalists.

Fiat money allows the central governments to dilute the money you own.
