For this reason, I still think professionals should align themselves with the working class. They are still expendable. Professions like me, still go through layoffs (I've been through tons of lay off cycles over the last 10 years), the company's we work for do not care about us. They will drop us in a minute.
I agree with this on two levels. Clearly what you said.
Also we hold knowledge that is not common. Once our voice is co opted this hard won knowledge and even wisdom is gone forever.
God is a comedian playing to an audience that is afraid to laugh.
