Socialist and working class culture

I'm completely convinced that workers' culture is the seed from which a new society will grow. That therefore it's really important for working class folks not to give it up if they want to do things like go to college. I have a mixed class background, but spent most of my life growing up as a working class person. The attractions of bourgeois culture, if they look at you as a candidate for being allowed into the club, are very enticing, but we need to keep true to our roots and not give it up for the promise of recognition in the bourgeois world.
