Response to pampango (Original post)

3. There are a few generally recognized classes in America.

 

The lowest class is made up of drug addicts, criminals, folks in generational poverty. I won't give them a name because by the very act of giving this clearly identifiable group a name causes the gentry (wait for it) to call you names and attack one as a member of the outgroup or other. Juggalos are this unmentionable class.

Next group up are the proles. Working folk, some familial dysfunction, but the group that makes a go of this world and make up the basis of our armies and nonfederal governmental workers. This is the largest group.

Next are the gentry. College educated. Trader Joe's. Professionals. They make the trains run on time, heal the sick and write the news.

Then there are the elite. A few dozen, maybe up to a thousand. They work for fun and have generational wealth. Pritzger. Rockefeller. Koch. Think about the kids at the Wanamaker Debutant Riot as well as at Davos.

In general, culture wise Trump is a prole. Do not equate cultural affinity with economic wealth. Trump truly enjoys professional wrestling and is in the WWE Hall of Fame.

Clinton and Sanders are gentry.

Elite want the proles to hate the gentry. Gentry want the proles to hate the elite.

No one gives a shit about the inmentionables.
