    Arms and Honour,

    Set the Martial Mind on Fire,
    And kindle Manly Rage.

    Insurrection is an art, and like all arts has its own laws.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)

    What exacerbates the strain in the working class is the absence of money to pay for services they need, economic insecurity, poor daycare, and lack of dignity and boredom in each partner’s job. What exacerbates it in upper-middle class is the instability of paid help and the enormous demands of the career system in which both partners become willing believers. But the tug between traditional and egalitarian models of marriage runs from top to bottom of the class ladder.
    Arlie Hochschild (20th century)
