We can see the usefulness of the idea of the Universal Class from this article: A white middle class group or set wishes to be the working class, and then confronts the banlieu sets. But all are part of the Universal Class (which can be a superset of the working class): in this formulation one assumes the need to mediate the different sets of classes. But, to be sure, for a putative common aim, a postcapitalist social formation, viz. market neo-communism, etc,…

We have discussed before in terms of movements such as #BlackLivesMatter: we can see from history the way a movement of civil rights against racism might will have an independent track in parallel to the classic communist style left. In fact we see that abolitionism predates the whole marxist legacy.
