Lonald Plourde Posted 4 months ago Is having a social class inevitable? Very well stated Wayne! What would our society be without social classes? Can you imagine being on a sports team where the outcome always ended in a tie? In order for there to be a winner, there must also be a loser. I believe the engine that drives humans to succeed would only diminish if there wasn't a monetary or social benefit. I'm currently going back to college to earn my Bachelor's degree at the age of 48. My motivation is that it should not only help me sustain employment but should also provide an opportunity for advancement. It is unlikely that I would have gone back if not for the social and monetary benefit. For the most part, we can choose our path and standing in society through the choices we make. The decisions we make on our employment, education, and how we spend our money are all choices. If society had a flat social class, it would likely be at the expense of having the choice to live life as we desire.
