What about the Lumpenproletariat?

You know, the truth is Marx’s term, the “Lumpenproletariat,” had gone straight over my head before. I just accepted the common usage, as a disparaging term grouping the nationalistic, militaristic masses into one category. But I think I like the Lumpen as defined by Wikipedia. I though I’d put this here because it has been so long since I last posted here, and strangely enough, this blog gets viewed more than much of the media I actually consistently use. So, I agree with Bakunin on that one.
