  • Why the lumpenproletariat has surpassed the traditional proletariat as the basis of class struggle.
  • The relationship between gangs and ethno-identitarian movements.
  • Gangs as source of streetfighters during revolutionary struggle.
  • The criteria needed for effective protest movements.
  • How a militant minority of passionate opinion-holders can affect society way beyond their numbers.
