We meet people in working class every day in our daily life, such sales, cashier, taxi driver, etc.; and we know some middle class people around us, lawyer, professor, doctor, etc. However, we do not know about or even never see ruling class “as a small elite among the capitalist and their top allies in politics and culture” (Zweig, 2001, P.17). Although they are rare of them, “no more than 2…

I got a sense that I was going to breeze by senior year and so my work ethic dropped tremendously.

After first semester, my other classes got even easier but math kept getting harder and my work ethic kept dropping. I was already accepted into…

    socioeconomic status and class standing, minority status, and gender. Over the years, America has become the land of economic disparity, not opportunity. The impact of class is a leading cause of American’s inability to not only succeed, but live their daily lives. Class can affect anything from health, education, and the environment.

Humankind will always sequester class; some on augur and others of a reprimand. a lack of Marxist lies in the search for philosophy in addition to the search for reality.
