who cares what i think about that, why do you want to hear me make up unsubstantiated opinions about this
You were arguing against me in a patronizing, dismissive way I interpreted as strong confidence I could be shown to be incorrect, and I wanted to fill the gaps in my knowledge.
I'm not arguing a doctrinaire Marxist perspective and I agree with you about the times and places being relevant. The context established by the OP (and most of the writing typical people of our sort have read) was post-Enlightenment works by people in industrial capitalist societies or the last days of feudalism transitioning into something similar. I agree that there probably were places where intellectuals from non-elite classes tended more left than reactionary, but my feeling is (certainly for the Anglosphere, mostly for France/Germany/Russia and not so much about the Japanese cited since I don't know too much there) that my contention about the higher proportion of writers emerging as reactionary for the context established matches what I know about the cultures in the times we read most from.
Of course emancipatory leftism/willingness to write as a class traitor, etc. increases in the 20th Century and may have at some recent point or at some point in the future become a bigger trend amongst non-elite writers than defending the status quo, but I don't see the proportion being anywhere close for the whole of the time period implied by the context in the OP (the last several centuries in Western industrial capitalisms and their imperial domains)
