People will put up with a lot, but when there is no more food and shelter, the shit is going to hit the fan. These are “Third World” economic conditions. A class sector without housing or jobs is not a proletariat, it is a lumpenproletariat. A society with tens of millions, perhaps a hundred million, unemployed and/or homeless people is unprecedented in industrialized societies. The “let them eat cake” attitude the ruling class is taking will be the shovel that digs their graveyard.
