"We Are Not All Created Equal" The Class System In America


The general consensus of this article is that the United States is approaching a state where it has a fixed social structure, where one's place in society is pre-determined by birth rather than work or talent.

It argues that the class system is "clandestine" because of the convictions held by the upper classes that they are there because they worked hard and the refusal of the lower classes that their poverty is permanent.

The article ends on a despondent note, saying that America's social immobility is irreversible at present due to immensity of the problem.
