How the American class struggle works.

Lenin's Tomb is a personal blog that was started in 2001 and has continuous monthly blogs. When i first went onto his blog there were posters for Tunisia and Arab groups which may indicate his views towards America anyway, let alone their political beliefs

He starts by quoting the New York times, which basically said how Americas business's are on the rise and how people may still be having economic difficulties. It also records many facts and figures about how much Americans economy has risen, and tries to make the article as positive as possible, however it doesn't look into how the people of America are still struggling and how many are truly in poverty.

'These, aspects of an increasingly brutal, exploitative and repressive capitalist system, are among the reasons why Obamamania has bitten the dust.' As previously said its clear that his views towards Americas politics and Obama aren't positive as in this statement he is clearly placing the blame all on the President and doesn't even look into other possibilities for the downfall.

Although when he does offer his opinion that there are job opportunities for people to create a better life for themselves, he then again spins a negative thought on it suggesting the work offered is low paid, labour work. However surely this work is better than nothing if you need to provide for yourself and your family.

Overall this is a very negative opinion about the current situation, this may be down to his background and beliefs due to the Arab influences posted on his blog.
