The End of TV’s Lumpenproletariat ❧
Nobody really likes the lumpenproletariat. They offend bourgeois liberals with their vulgar sensibilities. Conservatives see them as idling, lawless thugs. Capitalists have no use for anyone who cannot consistently produce profit. And many leftists find members of the lumpen unreliable as revolutionary subjects. It’s a wonder, then, that they ended up on television at all.
