The tragedy (subjectively speaking) is that we the so-called "middle-class" (in reality lower, middle to upper working class) have made our sand castles with our backs turned against the impending waves. Like a domesticated cat, we have deprived ourselves from training and strengthening our survival instincts. We observe the underclass from the security of our television screens, and we make phony statements about being in solidarity with the oppressed. We have been able to live in neighborhoods devoid of the hungry ghosts of junkies, whores, murderers, and thieves; we have the luck and fleeting luxury to live in homes with central heating and air conditioning instead of rats, roaches and bedbugs. We are doomed when the shit hits the fan, because the underclass hates us more than they hate the stealthy invisible hand of the uber-wealthy. We are traitors to the underclass, because we have a choice to protest (not a need) -- but we run to the safety of our homes when the first bullets start flying and the gas fills the streets with its ominous presence. When our neighborhoods get burned to the ground because the cops and fire fighters will be guarding the mansions of the rich, we'll be stuck in the concrete jungle, unpracticed in the existential mode of being a man in a state of nature. The rich and the poor have one thing in common: they both detest us. And if we truly end up in a Hobbesian state of nature, we will be the first to be eaten alive. There's no happy ending to this tale. We are truly fucked!
