Here is a great piece by Amitakh Stanford about the class system on earth, the industrial revolution, and other related topics. Amitakh also explains how and why the ruling elite prefer and mold society to be this way.

All beings of the Light should feel inside their hearts and deep inside their beings for what is right. You should try to overcome programmed indoctrination and prejudice in search for the Truth. The TRUTH is WITHIN.

Here is an introduction to, perhaps, peak the interest of the reader.

The Class Caste


Amitakh Stanford

Near the end of the nineteenth century and at the beginning of the twentieth, Western industrialization had taken a heavy toll on the environment; the air was turned chewy from black smoke that belched from chimneys and rivers became sludgy from putrid waste products from the manufacturing process. These manifold invasions of the environment were tolerated in the name of progress and production.

Many had proclaimed that machines would take away the drudgery of life, would free the ordinary people from having to do mundane tasks, and would be used to improve everyone's living conditions. Inventors were encouraged and improvements of every implement imaginable were instituted. And, indeed, life of the ordinary people did improve, but this was only to be a short-term situation. The ruling elite would not allow the lot of commoners to improve over the long term. But, for the time being, the machines were so productive, and growth of the markets so profound, that blue?collar workers were paid enough to have some extra income.

This had a profound effect — it began to erode the class differences. This was intolerable to the ruling elite. Prior to industrialization of the Western world, the class structures were quite well defined between the "haves" and the "have nots". As industrialization moved people into the cities and away from the farms and rural communities, it concentrated the "have nots" in smaller geographical areas, but, in order to lure people away from the rural regions, remuneration for factory work had to far out-strip farm pay, otherwise, people would tend to stay where they were, in the agrarian life style.

As the labour force became more and more affluent, it became less servile to the middle and upper class people. This was particularly noticeable in the United Kingdom. Prior to industrialization, there was such a distinction between the poor and the rich, that it was almost inconceivable for the lower class to imagine climbing the rung from the "have nots" to the "haves". It was the Western world's caste system, and it was almost impervious to penetration by the lower classes.

As the lower classes in the Western World gained control of more and more financial resources, they began to see themselves as equal to the middle and upper class, and a type of revolution commenced. Some of the former "have nots" began to show obvious displeasure to the snobs above them in the class structure. Even those of royal blood were in danger of being jeered at, insulted, and perhaps bombarded with eggs and rotten fruits if they dared to venture into the living areas of the working class. To the ruling elite, this situation was intolerable, and something had to be done quickly to halt the "unruliness" of the working class.
