It's sarcasm. Really, though, I prefer social democracy/Scandinavian style over capitalistic swindle. Socioeconomic status trumps all else, and the people have more in common with their class than they do with superficial nonsense such as race, nations, and religion.
Basically, the classes are the nations in the real world. Every other "nation" and flag is nothing more than a superficial, man-made location on a map.
Might as well jump on board, because resistors have not historically fared so well.
