	What would Friedrich Engels, who ran his family's manufacturing
company, say about the following point?

LaClau and Mouffe, who I have not read but only heard about, argue
(supposedly) that one's class is not determined by money or authority or
any of that, but instead by the position one takes in the struggle against
capitalism. There are thus pro-capitalist wage workers and socialist
CEO's. At the outset, I find that this perspective is rather blind in that
it seems to disregard the enormous barriers that our friend, capitalism,
;-) has placed between people.
