Class Struggle Until a Sectarian End

Karl Marx used to say that England was the country where class struggle will travel to its end. Can we say that Lebanon is the country where class struggle goes to its sectarian end? When observing the political spin of March 14th leaders and their media outlets in Lebanon it becomes clear that such fraudulent ideas are being directed toward the open sit-in in downtown Beirut. “Culture of death” is the key phrase for the downtown sit-in used by government leaders attempting to undermine all it represents.
