The election of 1912 Eugene Debs espoused a view of labor equality and socialism. He argued for a transformation that would make “the working class the ruling class”.***

That seemed to have been the position of Lenin, Stalin, and other Marxist leaders.

Is it possible that Debs was in fact a Marxist shrouded in Socialist clothing?

Are we hearing some of the same argument in the U.S. today?

    There's a fine line between Marxists and Socialists and the two philosophies often overlap.

    I haven't heard anyone recently who states that the working class should be the ruling class. Have you?

    You are correct, I have not recently heard of anyone who states that the working class should be the ruling class. I wish that were true, maybe then, the high unemployment situation that we are presently dealing with would improve!
    Thannk you

    Amen!
