Remember that silhouette jumping from the burning building in England?
She is not just a silhouette; she is person,
She was a productive member of society and fortunately still is, but is she proletariat or bourgeoisie?
It is interesting to note the parallels between the riots in England and Marx's proletariat/bourgeoisie conflict that supposedly would lead to capitalism's demise. First it didn't, at least not directly or under the same definitions for proletariat/bourgeoisie and second, it seems that before capitalism may enter a "Marxist" struggle it must first embrace a social state in which the proletariat become the unproductive and the bourgeoisie are the productive.
Socialism, the last step before equality of poverty.
Still mulling this over...
I don't know where I saw these quotes. so there are no links.
Give a man a fish and he will riot for more free fish.and
These rioters have suffered from not nearly enough incoming fire.
