Titanic Myths of Class Warfare

Yep, just breaks your heart, doesn't it? Twelve millionaires.
And 1500 other people whose names didn't and don't matter 
a damn.
As you will see here, back in the day, the MSM press crafted a myth of the noble millionaire, who stayed on Titanic and died, to give up a rich-guy's seat to women and children (most of whom were also rich or well off anyway).

A miner's union publication, picking up on this fact, two weeks into the myth-making, launched a critique of this elitist hogwash. Of course any criticism of rich people would pretty much guarantee you would be classified a "radical" or "anarchist", and shipped off to—well, they didn't have Gitmo yet, so often they just shot you and saved the time, you know.
