PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state

Bread Circuses

BREAD & CIRCUSES & BOFFINS COFFINS

The idea that people can be pacified by food and entertainment when they should be rallying to their prescribed civic duties isn’t a new one.
In fact, the concept was first described in ancient times by the satirical Roman poet Juvenal, who penned the Latin term panem et circenses, which means “bread and circuses.” 

BLINKERED PROLETARIAT CAN GET USED TO ANYTHING –

GHETTOES, CAMPS AND COFFINS FOR THE SAKE OF PEACE & QUIET

AND THE PETITE BOURGEOISE COUNCILS

CAN USED TO DOMINATING “SERVILES” UNDER THEIR CONTROL

MARX FOR MASTERMINDS

Who were the proletariat? Who were they going to revolt against? What
would the proletariat gain through their revolution?
a) the proletariat
There is a general definition of the word:

“the lowest or one of the lowest economic and social classes in a society.

In ancient Rome the proletariat consisted of the poor landless
freemen. It included artisans and small tradesmen who had been
gradually impoverished by the extension of slavery. The proletariat
(literally meaning “producers of offspring”) was the lowest rank among
Roman citizens; the first recognition of its status was traditionally
ascribed to the Roman king Servius Tullius (fl. 6th century BC). In
some periods of Roman history it played an important role, not as as
an independent force but as a mass following, in the political
struggles between the Roman patricians and the wealthy plebeians.
Because it had little opportunity for productive work, which was
performed in the main by slaves, its existence was largely parasitic
on the Roman economy. On occasions it was quieted by doles of bread
from the state and diverted by spectacles–“bread and circuses.”
