Paragraph 3

The Latin word proles is made by combining the prefix pro-, meaning ‘forth’, with alere. It therefore means ‘the one who grows forth from you’. Now, who is that? Your child.

To kill one’s child is called ‘prolicide’. To produce children is to proliferate and the one who produces many children is prolific.

The only way in which a poor man can serve his state is by producing more workers for it. That is why, the working class is called the proletariat.

Proliferate: (v) to grow in size or number.
  • Albert Einstein remarked, thus, about proliferation of nuclear weapons: “I don’t know how World War 3 will be fought, but World War 4 will be fought with sticks and stones.”
Prolific: (adj) producing or reproducing at a high rate.
  • He was a prolific writer. In a career span of 30 years, he produced 40 novels, 20 collections of short stories, 15 books of children’s stories, 15 collections of essays and five books of poetry.
Proletarian: (n) member of the working class. The working class was called the Proletariat.
  • “Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Working men of all countries, unite!” —Karl Marx
