This is Part II of our discussion of the Middle Class . Click here for Part I.
The most important class of any country is the middle class of that country. Here’s where history becomes very interesting. Did you know that most countries do not have a middle class? Well what classes of people DO they have? And what does this tell you about such countries?
Almost, if not all countries without a middle class have 2 classes of people. Of course, there are many countries in the world and many variations in government style. The rich and the poor are the 2 classes of people you will find in many other nations besides ours, in the U.S.A.
Unfortunately, classes of people are usually made on the basis of the money they make and have acquired. This is not a very good system. But it has been used for decades. Most countries have a poor class and a rich class – the rich class, of course, is also the ruling class. There is very little in between.
What Kind of Country Has No Middle Class?
Why, every authoritarian country, be it socialist, communist, marxist, absolutist, or whatever. There is no middle class, only the poor. In such an arrangement, the rulers have little to fear regarding uprisings against the government elite – the high and lofty self-anointed ones!! The poor class is pretty much reigned in by the ruling class. There is very little chance for advancement in money, prestige, or opportunity.
Anytime you are told of a country without a middle class, you should know immediately that you are dealing with some form of dictatorship. No exceptions.
Middle Class America
The middle class is the most important class in the country of the U.S.A. Why? Because it is by far the largest segment of the population and so it follows, it should be the most important.
I observe the USA to have 3 classes of people (financially). The poor, who could be subdivided perhaps, the middle class, and the rich and famous!
If I may speculate as to the earnings of the poor, I would say $20,000 per year in income, and for many, much less. The normally accepted earnings of the middle class would perhaps go up to $800,000 – pretty high for most in this range. Then the rich class would increase in earnings to the millions or more – from about the $800,000 range.
Which Class in the U.S.A. has the Largest Voting Bloc?
Which class garners the most votes cast? You guessed it – the middle class.
Which class thinks they know more about running the country than the middle class? (The elite ruling class – of course!)
And where do many great ideas come from that benefit everyone – where but from the middle class?
Now please understand my point:
Which class must be controlled at all costs by the country’s rulers (in our country currently, the socialists)?
Why, the middle class of the country must be controlled by the corrupt elites, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!
A class of people that is severely and harshly ruled over, always has fewer freedoms. ALWAYS!!
Do you have more or less freedom than you did even a year ago? They don’t want you to realize they are targeting the middle class to move them to the poor class so they can clamp down even more on their unconstitutional power grab. Awake yet?
YET – the middle class has enough people to cause dictators some serious trouble – should they decide to stand together against the tyranny! Let Freedom Ring!
