    We still live in a stratified socio-economic class heirarchy. Everyone looks down their noses at those below them.

    The sick thing about this kind of structure is that often the most desperate - those who are falling rather than rising, such as virtually the entire middle class - are the most vicious towards those below them. Don't expect the political system to offer the poor a helping hand any time soon.

    Crabs in a bucket.
