I am in no way joking.
in a true class (or caste) system, a person is born into their specific class and is unable to escape the specific class into which they are born.
in America, i can be a filthy rich, "upper class" ultra wealthy real estate mogul today, and be literally penniless tomorrow.
conversely, in America there is the potential for me to be dirt poor today, and to become very wealthy and in the "upper class" overnight.
the notion of a class system in the United States is an artificial division of the citizenry based upon marxist/communist doctrines and ideals.
Communists and "progressives" love the "classification" of people: if you are able to stratify people in terms of some arbitrary label or moniker, you
are more easily able to divide them and, ultimately, conquer them.
calling western culture generally and the U. S. specifically a society based on class denies a central, core fact about our culture: we have the
ability, through effort, intelligence, innovation, inspiration and divine providence, to alter our lot in life. On the flip side, through stupidity,
laziness and ignorance we can also alter our lot in life - to the negative.
this is why the statists and the dictators and the communists and progressives hate capitalism to the depths of their souls. they don't want an
individual to be able to alter the course of his/her life...they want that ability to be the property of a cadre of central planners. they hate the
individual; thus, they hate capitalism and the idea of the constitutional republic.
