Oligarchy rules the Corporate Capitalist world and economic mobility, meaning the ease at which one can rise or fall from one financial class to another, becomes restricted. So more and more the poor will have a hard time making out of being poor, and the rich will find it harder and harder to become poor.

    Free market, on the other hand, rewards input, ingenuity, enterprise, and innovation. To the best go the spoils. A poor man can become rich through effort and intelligence and invention. Likewise a rich man can become poor through apathy and bad decision. It allows for a flow.

    Currently, competition is choked off and we're stagnating in a pool of corporate oligarchy. The Corporate State reigns supreme now.

    21st century people are in large part lazy bums compared to the "greatest generation" in the 40's and 50's. A dope smoking moron will never have upward mobility. But those who are driven and success-oriented still move up just fine. There just aren't that many of them these days.

    Really? Think so, huh? How badly do you want to be proven wrong? Or do you wish to retract that statement.



    Sure, the words that come out of their mouths might be different...but their ACTIONS sure do bare a striking resemblance to each other.

    Proper is a bad word, I think even Ikari will grant you that.

    I think a better word would be possibility probability.


    The odds of remaining poor if born poor are higher now than they have EVER been in this country.

    I don't see middle class towns being raized for projects, or low income homes.
    I see houses being built- Must be a booming economy.
    I see no Police- Must be no crime.

    Suggestion- Stop on your drive to Upscaleville and ask.
    Where is the middle class going is what I asked.
    Why Upscaleville because you drive by it. Yep that is sound. You make decisions based upon that?


    uhm I cant decipher this post.



    my question stands, who lives in all these middle class homes all over this country if the middle class is shrinking?


    Simple question.

    I've shown it's actually growing. Are the "middle class" becoming the "Working poor"?


    Then who moves into thier middle class homes?
