Workers of the World

Dear Mr. Marx:

What is the income limit for the proletariat?

Just kidding. I’m sure that’s one of those “if you have to ask” questions.

Forget class consciousness and controlling the means of production. It’s simpler than that. Does the proletarian spend more on internet connectivity than she does on clothing? Does she drive with the air conditioning on and the sunroof open? Does she worry about whether her cell phone matches her PDA?

No. She doesn’t.

I deserve this guilt.
