Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That is: "The end effect for the consumer is the same." The class question is answered.

As to: "But applicable solutions are different", I disagree. There is only one solution, and that is to level income and asset distribution to a major extent. That is the class-based solution. After that - or along with that - we can work on social, energy-related, and economic-control issues.

Income and asset inequality do get themselves resolved - temporarily - every so often at the same time that a lot of economic and social resources are destroyed. That's where we are headed. Meantime, we should continue to try to resolve the main issue - the class issue - because it's possible that the process of solidifying a class-conscious solution might create conditions for a larger solidarity of opinion on the other issues.
