The lumpenproletariat exist in a different economy to the rest of the world

I don’t think you know how the black/illegal market works, and how it props up the white/legal market. You sound like an AnCap when you say shit like that.

Watching tumblr argue over the the term lumpenproletariat is fucking hilarious.

Whether we work in coal mines or coffee shops, on factory assembly lines or at grocery store conveyer belts, whether we are undocumented, single mothers, or queer, as working class people we are all similarly deprived of the wealth we create. To assign a revolutionary role to the working class does not mean to value miners, construction workers, or factory workers (all very masculine roles) over social groups such as the undocumented or the unemployed (themselves segments of the working class). The working class does not simply exist in relation to the Factory; we exist in relation to our landlords in apartment complexes, in relation to our neighborhoods and our neighbors, and so forth. In short, the working class is immersed in a world far more expansive than their place of work. Working class revolution should never be confused for workplace revolution.

I met an Anarchist once and I had to explain to him what Somalia is

He then had to explain to you what anarchism is, obviously.


it’s interesting to me that ppl associate forced labor with communism when you will most likely literally die if you don’t work under capitalism
