What factors makes the upper middle & upper classes more advanced & forward thinking than the
lower, working, lower middle, & even the solidly middle classes?
HI Grace Marguerite Williams! How's it going?
Has it been established that the upper middle and upper classes are more advanced and forward-thinking than the rest of us? My understanding is that political conservatism tends to benefit such people best. If we're talking about politics, for example, it would depend upon what you mean by "advanced" and "forward thinking."
By "forward thinking," do you mean future-oriented? And if you mean "future-oriented," what do you mean by that? What kinds of policies and technologies does a "forward thinking" person advocate?
By "forward thinking," do you mean politically liberal? Is it forward thinking to hope that Hilary Clinton wins the presidency of the United States, so that we can finally check off that box and join the rest of the civilized world, in having had a woman head of state?
Does "forward thinking" mean advocacy for full LGBT rights? By "advanced," what do you mean? Do you mean "educated"? Therefore, do you mean to say that "educated" people are more "advanced" than less well educated people?

When choosing college classes, what factors affected your decision? Did you choose classes in relation to the course work, the ease with which you knew you would pass the class or was it because all your friends were doing it.

Those of you who know me in the forums will love or hatr me for this one. I am once again astounded with the behaviour of a parent. The following link is to a news reel that shows a mother and her sister leaving her one year old child behind after they are caught shoplifing at Walmart. I am once...
