I'm also really sceptical of the kind of false elitism that comes from not having to do manual labor. "Yeah, we're smart and rich, so other people clean our shit." Then one day those other people, who outnumber you one hundred to one, rise up and kick your ass. That's what happened in Russia and France anyway.
A better understanding of history helps to better illuminate the problem here - peasant revolts have been universally unsuccessful, except
when combined with leadership from unscrupulous men of greater ability. Neither the French nor Russian revolutions were spontaneous uprisings among the lower classes, in both cases, there were significant leavenings from other strata of society, and, in both cases, the leadership
was drawn from among the well-educated and well-heeled. Lenin and Robespierre weren't peasants, they were lawyers.
