The day the middle class will rise up

When the middle classes revolt, our political leaders will realise that they have been sitting on a powder keg, warns Polish philosopher Marcin Król. In the absence of any prospect of social advancement, they may choose revolution as a last resort to make themselves heard.  They do not understand, because they are caught in the thrall of one idea which has become an obsession: to return to the state of stability that prevailed 10 or 30 years ago. What they do not realise is that there is no going back in history, and that their intentions are very much in tune with Karl Marx’s observation that history repeats itself as farce.
