I acknowledge workers exist, it's just more complicated than that; that is, class dynamics are not the be-all end-all. Class is but one of society's oppressive aspects.

Class is the base through which all other oppressions originate and/or are shaped.

that's an assumption, but how do you figure? some folks claim it is controlled fire. how far back do you go, and on what shifting evidence (as new research findings surface)? the reductivist attempt to declare the one source, that key piece to the puzzle, is a game of dead ends.

class itself has shifted dramatically in a matter of generations. the distinctions are nothing like marx's 19th century analysis. the situationists and italian autonomists wrote volumes on this 50 years ago. and for as much as folks like to wax nostalgic, this aint '68.
