K. Irenistic Utopianism, the Characteristic of the Worldly Bourgeois and the Worldly Proletarian

 

Whether the worldly be bourgeoisie or proletarians, they have a common denominator precisely in this point.

Through his fortune, social position, and political influence, the worldly bourgeois hopes to obtain complete independence, stability, and pleasure, in short, the earthly paradise his utopia promises him.

The worldly proletarian hopes to acquire the same either by becoming bourgeois or by creating for all men ‑ of which he imagines himself the center ‑ a microparadise achieved in the less brilliant, but nonetheless attractive conditions of an egalitarian society. In this new society the proletariat would be the owner of everything, and the vestiges of what was once the power of the state would be transferred to an organism with the cartilaginous consistency of a mere cooperative. In the egalitarian and cooperativist paradise the proletarian would be independent and gifted with stable and happy living conditions somehow even greater than those of the bourgeois at present.
