Bare life

Just come across this quote from Hayek:

The proletariat which capitalism can be said to have ‘created’ was thus not a proportion of the population which would have existed without it and which it had degraded to a lower level; it was an additional population which was enabled to grow up by the new opportunities for employment which capitalism provided. (The Constitution of Liberty)

There you go, proletarians: be grateful to capitalism for even allowing you to exist.
