Re: The proletariat

I didn't know the Communist Manifesto dated back to the ancient Rome... Your assumption that the Manifesto devised original terms is disturbing...

Pulling tongue out of left cheek... However, even the parallel between the Roman census term (basically, proletarii were citizens without significant property to their name) and the working class under 19th century capitalism predates Marx by some margin.
