A better way of looking at ourselves?

“When most socialists treated the working class as a kind of bee colony – pre-programmed to perform its historical role – Gramsci said: everyone is an intellectual. Even if a man is treated as “trained gorilla” at work, outside work “he is a philosopher, an artist, a man of taste … has a conscious line of moral conduct”. [Antonio Gramsci, Selections from the Prison Notebooks]”
