There is, however, a more intelligent form of class politics. This starts from the fact that class isn’t a state of mind but an objective fact: if you’re in a position of subordination to an employer, you’re working class whatever you feel. This means that being working class unites otherwise disparate people. The immigrant chambermaid, the skilled coder whose boss is a tw@#, and the academic facing the neoliberalization of the university are all working class. This means they have some common interests. All would benefit from increased control in the workplace and increased bargaining power

My son, Charlie watched the tail end of the Vice Presidential debate with me, and made the following observation:
Tim Kaine looks like a cartoon villain, and Mike Pence looks like a Bond villain.
It’s true. You can see Kaine saying, “And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids.,” and you can see Pence saying, “No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die.”
Seriously, look at the side by side pictures:
My wife has raised a very wise young man.
When I was younger, if I finally came home at 10 am in the clothes I was wearing the night before, it would be a very good night.
These days, if I finally came home at 10 am in the clothes I was wearing the night before, it is a very bad night.
Everyone in Chez Saroff is OK, but getting there was no fun at all.
