Before watching this video I advice you read down below in the description box. Where the uploader had given a background narrative explaining the purpose of the documentary
My summarisation and response to this would be separating cultural romanticism with the ruling class in contemporary society..
In my schooling and studies I was introduced and taught “Marxist Social Hierarchy” – https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.hierarchystructure.com/marxist-social-hierarchy/amp/
The example here is a basic fundamental breakdown on the different classes. I am sure if you did your own google search. You would find a more appropriate one.
Now that I’ve gotten older left school and further education I have come to realise that I didn’t know what divisions and constituents a class. What makes it’s up.
I can tell you logically there is rich, secure and poor people and what defines each category in regards to there assets and production. But what I can’t tell you is how there integrated in different societies and the relationship it has with cultural romanticisms.
I can’t seem to find a definite answer either. Are the two entirely different topics? I would suggest they are for me at the moment. But that’s only because I don’t know.
I have spent a lot of time recently trying to figure out this had lead me to writers and books such as George Orwell (Down and Out In London), Herman Hesse (Steppenwolf) and Adous Huxley (A Brave New World)
But in relation to this video. What is your opinions on the current cultural romantic climate in Amsterdam?
Leaving it here I will add this Herman Hesse quote to dwell on.
“And so I have lived for the past 12 years I’m Kazakh and own none of it whatever nor did I have the whole house but rented only a small apartment of rooms. I was no longer lord of the manor, father of a family with a house of children and servants, calls to his dog and cultivates his garden I was now a literary penniless man a threat bare and rather dubious stranger who lived on milk and rice and macaroni who wore his old suits till they were threadbare and in fall brought home his supper of chestnuts from the forest. But the experiment which was the point in it succeeded it was like waking from a nightmare that lasted years. I inhaled freedom, the air the sun I had solitude and my work.”
