social classes

September 25, 2013 at 1:09 pm 5 comments

I think we have a fine social system. However it does get tricky when there’s someone who gets upset with his place. In our system there are people who are workers, businessmen, traders, rich, Hollywood stars, military, etc. and government officials. The only reason there are classes is because people tend to hang around people only like them. Some people set up are social class like this: Upper Class-Elite, Upper Middle Class, Lower Middle Class, Working Class, and the Poor.  

 

In the early years of America, people came to this continent to escape religious persecution and form churches that their denomination could live and worship together.  This is an example of a group of people with similar qualities living together.

Nazi’s thought that no person could exist without belonging to a certain race. They tried to weed out anyone who wasn’t a part of their race at the same time gathering those similar and the same as themselves. This is a negative example of a social class that went too far in their belief.

    If you think about it, there is really no “poor.” class in America. If you were to think about it, a homeless person in America has more money and opportunity then say a poor person in Africa of even Europe. (Europe’s economy is worse then ours. An American businessman would have a lot easier time and it would cost a whole lot less to hire a homeless person at say at McDonald’s in America than a European McDonald’s.)

    The Jews are one example that the Nazi’s tried to weed out.

    I don’t think that its about hanging out with certain people that put you in a certain class, I think its more about the amount of money you make.
