Referring to income bracket you are spot on.
Hey Tirelesstraveler, there's no such thing aside from income class. The income is how social standing is considered.
There's to be no class otherwise because it would be discrimination. We're Americans and that would be the only classification to understand.
The conversation which needs to happen is how to do away with the mentality which holds US back from becoming more.
What mentality? The I mentality, needs to turn to a WE mentality. If not, nothing changes.
Good point, Cags.
There is an unspoken undercurrent of "we mentality" in high class behavior.
It is inclusive not exclusive.
It puts others at ease.
Low class behavior is selfish and self-centered. Some low class people simply don't know better. Others have abandoned the pursuit of classiness because low class values are reinforced in today's society.
When I go to the grocery store, I spontaneously speak to strangers all the time. Invariably the responses fall into the high class behavior category; always friendly, always intelligent.
However, if I were to read "High class behavior" as "ethical behaviour", our society is indeed a mess.
The most class a person can show in their behavior is to be courteous and kind to others regardless of where they come from. Most often, others behave toward us the way we behave toward them first.
Hear a rabbi talking on this subject. His idea of high class transcended income bracket an applied to behavior. Some high class behavior: ate at home often,
if they got married they stayed that way,were kind to others and the husband had a job. Low class behavior was Paris Hilton and the husband didn't have a job.
People have fallen quite low in their behavior categories. However I always find that if I speak to a stranger and I show myself as being smart and can interrelate with them well I always get a normal response. Here in Riga the people with the lowest class behavior are poor living Russians. Lower than that it's the homeless and derelicts. High class behavior goes to all the rest mostly working class and higher up on the rung people. I must also say it's too bad but more and more young people from high school are falling into the low class behavior category.
There are rich "low-class" people and poor "high-class" people in this world. I've known both..
I think better terms may be civilized behavior vs uncivilized behavior..
Ask the U.S. politicians and they will gladly sell you the lie that the overall of society is civilized.
It's BS, but they don't expect the individual person to know anything different. They are already working on the presumption that people need to be told what to do, how to live and if not, then you either are immoral or Godless.
How civilized can we really be if everyone needs to carry a concealed weapon (with or without permit) to enforce their own individual rights?
That strikes me as rather barbaric.
But what do I know?
I am obviously immoral and Godless.
I don't see how you are applying carrying a concealed weapon with being civilized.
I do find it rather funny that you seem to think that protecting oneself and how it is done is to be a factor other people need to worry about.
It is not barbaric to protect oneself, regardless of what weapon is used.
There once was a time, in this country, when not carrying a gun was odd. What is better to have everyone educated on the proper usage of fire arms or only criminals?
High class, low class. It all depends on empathy. Can you identify with another? Can another identify with you? Can you put yourselves in each others' shoes without playing a drama game? Drama game meaning, "It's all about me."
We've raised at least two generations where it is all about me.
Young parents, take this to heart. It is not all about "me". It is about "us" and how we are going to survive in the years to come.
High class is respect for fellow humans.

How does a group of Angry Liberals beating a black homeless woman make you feel?A homeless WOMAN is harassed and assaulted by angry liberals over her position on supporting Donald Trump. What if this same scenario happened but it was GOP supporters doing the pummeling?
