I was arguing with my girlfriend’s highschool friend yesterday (who claimed to be a Marxist), and he said that the US had a peasantry. “There are a lot of poor people in the US so how can you say they don’t have a peasantry?” He also said that the bourgeoisie were the middle class and he didn’t know what petit bourgeois were.
Seriously how dumb do you have to be? I wouldn’t mind someone being dumb if they didn’t claim to read Marx, but this guy SAID that he read the Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital, yet he had no idea of the differences between feudalism/capitalism modes of production. Please stop being dumb, AmeriKKKans.
