Social classes

I think we have an excellent social system right now. I don’t like the idea of feudalism in that, someone completely awesome and hardworking could be born into a low class and even though he has the ability to be at the top of the class, he has to stay where he was because of where he was born. Europe used this for centuries, and it was very oppressive to people. I think that you should be known for how diligently you work instead of if were lucky enough to get born into the right family. Capitalism provides America with this great privilege.

    In today’s history, people are getting more and more into freeloading off other peoples hard work, so I think if we had feudalism we might be worse off.

    If only people engaged in capitalism more, people could move between social classes more easily. People feel (and partly because of laziness) that they are grounded to one specific social class.
