I'm trying to recall the name and author of a short story. I read it in an
anthology in the mid to late 80s. Stylistically it was "New Wave", so it
likely was written in the late 70s. It was set in a future where
civilization was falling apart. The thing I recall about the plot, is that
periodically, some organization would publish what the new class of "enemy"
was. These proclamations started very specifically (members of splinter
revolutionary parties, for instance), but gradually grew more general
(racial or ethnicity), until at the end, war was declared between men and
women. Does this ring any bells?
