Marx on the defence of minority language and culture… Notice anything???

“Inside of you are the villages where your ancestors lived in pre-capitalist times. Your culture. The tendency of capitalism is to turn you into a proletarian, an unskilled, uneducated, worker and consumer of adulterated products yielding up surplus value to the capitalist. It does this to increase profits. Even a teacher can become a proletarian. [das Capital, Penguin translation, p. 644] …he works himself into the ground to enrich the owner of the school.”
