I'd be surprised if many people here are coders. I'm a warehouse worker making 13€ an hour (production bonuses included) and know from years of posting here that this is not usual.
As for history, well, it has a way of catching you off guard. Marx and Engels, and Lenin after them, have been largely vindicated, though not completely of course. >>398243>>398253
Stalin didn't consider himself to be "of proletarian blood". His class background was interesting. His father was a small business owner at a point, and Stalin called himself in one speech "the son of an exploiter". The inbred Nazi poster is correct in that class isn't set in stone. A Morach he wasn't, the idea is stupid. He lived in wealth, but he wasn't a leach like the Morachs or Capitalists. As long as states exist, the statesmen will convince themselves they deserve to live in extravagance because of the hard work and preassures they're under. Yeah it's "le ironic", but oh well.
