Marxian class analysis is particularly suited to this demonstration but 
in our demonstration model we will operate from multiple theoretical 
constructs, displaying the power of our method.  The intent is to show 
how Python is well suited to social analysis and not the other way 
around.  I hope this is clear.

What particular realms are you referring to when you speak of adding value?

Your feedback is much appreciated, thank you.
