The Percentages: A Biography of Class

If you have some time, read the article The Percentages: A Biography of Class at Tiger Beatdown. It discusses the we are the 99% slogan of the Occupy Wall Street movement. The author uses a personal story to portray the complexity of class division and classification . She emphasises the solidarity of the 99%, whilst dismissing the uniformity that underpins such division.

About the author

George Iordanou

I'm mostly interested in politics and philosophy, which makes up for the majority of this blog. As this is an archive of what I have written over the years, it also provides a glimpse into my personal life. I'm currently working in the humanitarian sector. In my past life I was in academia where I completed a Ph.D. in political theory with focus on multicultural citizenship. I'm one of the few people lucky enough to be given the opportunity to actually practice their research interests. Needless to say, whatever I write here is strictly my personal opinion and does not represent anyone else.
