See, the really Interesting Thing about Economic Class is that - with the proper tax structure, and with most income coming from rental wealth - it actually is Inheritable.
Very much like Race, see, in that way.
It becomes something you're born into, and is measured less in Companies and more in Families, who tend to marry each other.
Becomes very similar to Aristocracy, Monarchy and Feudalism.
why did we forget that "economic class" is an actual thing and that it's separate from race?
in whose interest might it have been that we forget?
are we embarrassed to start talking about Class again?
is it that it's become Socially Acceptable on the Polite Left to talk about Discrimination Based On Race, and yet Very Socially Unacceptable in the same Left to talk about Discrimination Based On Not Having Giant Stacks of Money?
did stacks of money have any influence on this change, I wonder
There sure are a lot of people talking about "whiteness" these days in a way that sounds remarkably not at all like skin colour.
As in "look at these billionaires this is what whiteness looks like, also whiteness isn't race"
At some point we probably need to start saying "rich" and stop saying "white" when we actually mean "rich" and not "white".
It's like the Left is struggling to articulate the idea of "class" because they forgot it's a thing, and are trying to make race do class's work.
Thank you SO MUCH for adding Delete And Redraft!
and we're all gonna shine a light together
