questions on Kautsky

where to begin:
The Intellectuals and the Workers
by Karl Kautsky

isn't the changing structure of class relations under capitalism de-proletarianizing the First World, creating more intellectuals than proletarians?
how does this impact the process and goals of 'revolution'?

is the Third World now being proletarianized as it is better integrated into capitalism?
is this process a step toward their own intellectualization, or not?

what is the significance of an increasingly intellectual society, and what relationship does it bear to class relations as understood by [Marx]?

(Chabert on Nietzsche and the latter half of Kautsky's essay)
