I think you've got that [bourgeoisie] backwards.
Albeit, Google has grown immensely wealthy - beyond belief. They are one and we are many. The thousands of us Webmasters who have been doing this for longer than a decade (many less) have also benefited immensely. We've amassed our own fortunes. We are the digital social class that owns the means of production in this digital age. Google is part of that 'we'.
If the FTC can shut Google down they can also shut some of us down. Sorry, Iím a free market guy. I learn the system well and exploit the hell out of it for personal gain. I thought that Webmasterworld was all about - learning and sharing so that we could be better. Better leads to profit if you're a capitalist.
Of recent, it looks to me like WebmasterWorld is about winning and sticking it to big G.
