Murray's New Book
The weakness of Murray's work is his idealism, its total disregard of the economic infrastructure of his findings. He ignores Hegel's dialectics and ignores Marx's materialism, that class is consequence of the social mode of production and the new American class structure grows out of America's new methods of production.
Five or six thousand coal miners produce all America's coal, a few thousand farmers produce mountains of soybeans, corn and wheat that feed half of the world, a few dozen nuclear power plants generate much of America's electricity. Modern factories (and I know a few in Israel) are ghostly: large floors full of silent machines and nowhere a man to be seen. Simply put, there is no need for nor use for uneducated males. The economy can employ technically educated people, and not too many of them neither. There is unemployment among mathematicians too.
Murray describes what the surplus males do: Sunshine Club. They work and strive less than former American generations, they spend time in games and meaningless sex. Men will not marry.
All in all, America's GNP and military might will grow (without need for the White male proletariat). But the solution is obvious - America will be the New Rome. To keep the suprlus proletariat busy and maintain social stability, they will be give PANEM ET CIRCUS, social security and free TV. Maybe foreign low-tech wars to maintain their male self esteem.
Thanks to our abominable, beastly, heinous, vile enemies that give us no pause, we in Israel are free of America's social problems.
