GUEST,Sidewinder. BS: Can we discuss the Class system in UK? (119* d) RE: BS: Can we discuss the Class system in UK? 13 Apr 05

It is interesting to see that "TRTP" is still a touchstone within many of the points raised and continues to be praised and villified in equal terms.I would have thought Orwells most thought provoking and inspired works would have achieved the same reactions, at the time of publication, but seem now to be merely established works of "safe" fiction that are part of most school curriculums after effectively being depoliticised.Whereas, "TRTP" is a staple of Universities studies in various social, political, business study streams and in this context has influence far beyond the run of the mill modern day dogma in shaping perceptions of class distinctions even with cartoonesque stereotypes it still registers on the scale of greater literary works and this is the important factor in all of this regurgitation -Marx said potato, Mao said potatos.It is the masses that evoke change and it is the masses that accept the existing order.Within the masses are individuals that are dealing with important self interests and hang ups that shape their existence. It is only by understanding what it takes for them to drop their inherent struggle and take on board a new set of all encompassing values that could bring about a truly classless society and this would have to begin from birth.
