The hypocrisy of the Petite Bourgeoisie..

In the 13 years of New Labour The left from The SWP and onwards was telling The Working Class vote Labour with no illusions, and the silence from some anarchist was almost defining. Now we have a CON-DEM government, the hypocrisy of the Petite Bourgeoisie has brought them out in protest saying stop the cuts, it is only when there jobs are at risk we see them on the streets, to be frank underclassrising will not protest to defend the jobs of The Police, Dole Workers, Middle Management and so it goes on, we need to make The Middle Class History not defend there privileges..

Petit-bourgeois (sometimes Anglicized as petty bourgeois) is a French term that originally referred to the members of the lower middle social classes in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Starting from the mid-19th century, the term was used by Karl Marx and Marxist theorists to refer to a social class that included shop-keepers and professionals.

Though distinct from the ordinary The Working Class and the lumpenproletariat, who rely entirely on the sale of their labor-power for survival, the petty is different from the haute bourgeoisie, (high bourgeoisie) or capitalist class, who own the means of production and buy the labor-power of others to work it. Though the petite bourgeois may buy the labor power of others, in contrast to the haute bourgeoisie, they typically work alongside their own employees; and although they generally own their own businesses, they do not own a controlling share of the means of production.
