From Google’s recently update Ngram site that tracks usage of phrases in books over time:


I’m guessing that most instances until recently had a comma between the words, such as in, say, “When she was pregnant, people were solicitous.”

Marx’s theory was that the working class will win because there are so many of them. The new view reverses that: that the deranged, confused, and disagreeable must win because there are so few of them.
