I'm not going to answer the question, but I will observe that the UK newspapers in the 1970s were full of statements of declaration of war between "the Workers" and "the Establishment". Lurid and overstated articles described the imminent ending of "Our way of life and existence as we know it"** on this sceptre'd isle.
The Daily Express was heavily involved then too, as was the one-time Hitler-supporting Daily Mail.
There is war and war. One form results in the death of 20,000,000 Russians, 5,000,000 other nationalities, and ultimately 6,000,000 Jews, the other....... Doesn't.
** My quotations, for the purpose of emphasis - I didn't pick the wording from any particular newspaper.
