That was only a 30 minute invitation. It has since expired.

The easiest way to do this is probably invite me directly. My username on discord is Broletariat #9893

[quote="Some Reddit *******"]That by virtue of being Marxists, it assumes that we actually know all the ins and outs of the capitalist system


That is sort of the point, though.

I suppose the argument comes down to how we define class consciousness.

I might have personal experience of unfair working practices, struggling with low wages, discrimination at work, that sort of thing. I am conscious of the fact that the system works against me as an individual. In that sense a lot of people have 'class consciousness'. But not really, because they never generalise their experiences to workers in other industries, and capitalism as a whole. As Broletariat pointed out, people can still be working-class and racist, for example. If I think my boss is an ******* who exploits me, but I also think Mexicans are all filth, I don't really have a consciousness of class as such.
