We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I think in America a lot of the means of production did wind up in proletariat hands: land, education and skills, printing presses, equipment for trades and crafts, shops.
It didn't happen because government made it happen, but only because government didn't prevent it from happening. Marx and Engels might have sneers for modern liberals and grudging admiration for free marketers. Marx, unlike most of his followers, had actually studied economics, after all.
