The Proletarian Center for Research, Education and Culture (Prole Center) seeks to provide political education and to spread class consciousness among the working class – also known as proletarians. We are the vast majority of the U.S. and the world. We are both blue-collar and white-collar, intellectual and manual labor workers.
The bourgeoisie are the affluent upper classes who exploit our labor while producing, for the most part, little real social value themselves. The upper class capitalists are essentially money managers and investors who use their inherited wealth to make even more money and to control the government (to preserve their racket). Their upper middle class lackeys are the multi-millionaire and even billionaire CEOs and business executives who assist with management and technical expertise in the service of the capitalist masters. In the U.S. the true old money capitalist ruling class families are probably no more than about .01% of the population, while their petty bourgeois disciples represent approximately 5% of the population.
Prole Center uses a Marxist-Leninist framework for analyzing world events.
