“It is now the capitalist who says, ‘Workers of the world, unite!,’ the better to dissolve those 'inefficiencies’ in the labor market (that is, high wages) that arise from political boundaries. The slogan once expressed a hope to organize a body of workers who were dispersed and hence exploitable, whereas now it captures the desire for a mass of 'human resources,’ exploitable because undifferentiated.”
