selfless? stupid? powerful or powerless?

"Hundreds of sacked staff of KPNQwest, the Dutch telecoms company that has filed for bankruptcy protection, are occupying a key operations centre in an attempt to stop a European internet crash," reports the Telegraph (which I steal blatantly from metafilter). Is this the moment when class war and tech war finally come together? (Or did that happen long ago, with the Luddites, though roles were inverted back then.) ""The administrators have just driven off in their BMW M5s and they are threatening to send in the police to force us to leave."
