Every day we hear mention of a class war in the U.S., but not everyone agrees that it’s real. In Class Warfare, philosopher Charles D. Hayes takes up the issue, offering observations about the shrinking of the middle class and how values have shifted since the 1950s among political conservatives. Pulling together a wide range of provocative ideas about what’s lacking in our education system and why hating the government is counterproductive, Class Warfare delivers new insight into the fundamental reason Americans have trouble getting along. Wanting something better for future generations, Hayes aims to motivate all citizens who want to save their democracy. (5267 words)

About the Author
Charles D. Hayes is a self-taught philosopher and one of America’s strongest voices in support of lifelong learning. Promoting the idea that education should be thought of not as something you get but as something you take, his work has been honored by the American Library Association and featured in USA Today, in the UTNE Reader, and on National Public Radio’s Talk of the Nation. Hayes’ September University: Summoning Passion for an Unfinished Life has been described as a “must read” for anyone aspiring to a better world. His previous book, The Rapture of Maturity: A Legacy of Lifelong Learning, upholds the importance of seeking truth and serving others to achieve our full potential as human beings. Hayes spent his youth in Texas, and then served as a U.S. Marine and a police officer before embarking on a career in the oil industry. Alaska has been his home for more than 30 years.
