Marx writes of producers or labor power. He writes about serfs, slaves; he includes employed and unemployed (the active army, the reserve army); he refers to peasants, to artisans, to small manufacturers. All people who have lost their organic connections to nature, that is, to land, its creatures, its grains; to the waters and pastures; as well as to the geological resources lying beneath the land. All people who have been expropriated from the means of life, the means of production, the means of subsistence, this is what he means.
