It's bound to happen but probably not as a proliteriat revolution. Very dated but rratively well thought out.

thoughts from the past

Caesar's Column by Ignatius Donnelly was written by an interesting historical figure who was said to have gotten himself elected to congress simply to gain full access to the library. Written a hundred and twenty years ago the author never dreamed such things as unions, computers or cell phones would appear. He sees a very dark future for the country as more and more people are getting jobs. During his time this was considered one of the country's greatest threats, because people who had jobs instead of living off the land like everybody else were considered shiftless. Employment was considered by some to be white slavery. What is interesting is that he pictures the wage earners ending up very much like Stienbeck's migrant workers. After reading it I could see why it was a total failure. The author made the two classic mistakes of all utopian writers, he never stopped to think, what if, by some miracle, it all goes the other way and society self corrects itself and that most people are satisfied with living and saving the perfect society for that time they plan to spend with angels.
