People may think I’m a snob because I’m very anti low-class culture and it’s power in our status quo. This is not true; being anti low class isn’t about being a snob or classist. Low classness is not a real issue, as opposed to issues such as poverty and equal opportunity. Class inequality does exist in our society, but I think we can all, regardless of our social class unite against low classness and its status quo of rudeness, inappropriateness, ignorance, arrogance and worse. There’s good reason to be anti low-class culture, and it has nothing to do with social class, and everything to do with having class and the importance of having class, especially in leadership and the status quo.
Enlightenment and progress have always come from the educated and cultured classes. It still does. Its enlightenment and culture that benefits all, but without reason or fail, the low class despises and rejects it all, even if it benefits them. This is the hallmark of low classness, this base form of class resentment behind all their thinking, and the accompanying hate of upper classness and anything “classy” or intelligent. That’s may be fine if it remains an outsider opinion, but not fine when it becomes a political movement like alt and current conservatism has become, where ignorance and anti enlightenment are badges of honor, or when it becomes cultural and ingrained in our media.
The far right might control our politics, but it’s the far left, as well as the far right and their hate of standards, common decency, morality and psychologic truths, who controls our entertainment and media. The rise in immigrant crime, crime, misogeny, violence, and hate shows how damaging and destructive low class attitudes are culturally as well as politically. This scorning and dismissing of upper/middle class sensibilities, concerns about the effect all this horror, obscenity, violence, low class dumbness has on our children, society, and humanity’s psyche and mentality is the problem, as is socially our being told we have to accept it all, and just sit back and watch as our world slips further into decline and division.
As a youth, growing up in a very sheltered, upper middle class home, I embraced punk rock, then later rap street lifestyle and their lawless culture. I was naive and innocent and was easily led by far left promises of freedom, fun and social justice. I was slumming, and it was very destructive to me. During the years I was slumming with far left and low class culture, I was a mess and disaster, and made all the wrong decisions. When I decided to return to my culture and myself and to being myself, I began to thrive and understand the world and life as it is. Now I see these truly non positive values and lifestyle are the hippest, coolest things ever and their having full inclusion in our status quo. And we wonder why we are fighting to maintain our peace, unity and first world status.
Activists fight the low class forces everyday. If we were to stop the low class would win, rule unchallenged and that would precipitate our slow decline into a speedy and direct descent into third world economy, governance and culture. The upper middle classes and the enlightened middle classes are right. We don’t want or need that. First world culture is why immigrants and migrants want to move to our countries. It’s a blessing, and not something we should take for granted, or throw away.
On the issue of migrants and immigrants, it is just the low of class, and their racist and class hate that keeps our nations from prioritizing integrating or dealing smartly or proactively with migrants, or any other issue we are currently faced with. When the UN came up with their smart, proactive migrant pact, sure to curb illegal traffic if acted upon, the low class dismissed and derided it simply because it’s “liberal” and obviously a work of western upper-class institutions and enlightened minds. That’s more proof to me the total will and hate driven ignorance of the low class, and why they must never again be given the power to rule our nations and status quo or inclusion to do so.
Our media is not always helpful either. Most of it is very good, and all of it a democratic institution, but some of it is not at all helpful, merely goes back and forth between supporting low class far right to low class far left attitudes and opinions. Entertainment is the same. There are western cultural strongholds but I’ve noticed even those, like PBS, who is reliant on public funding has been adding populus content, like hunter, speciest programming on Nature. That feed the bottom class as well, and it all does matter. Enlightenment is what keeps the west vital, great and moving forward. It is up to our media as well a politics to keep us enlightened. Sadly this just is not happening alot anymore.
To be honest, western culture is what keeps our planet civilized and moving forward. Other countries prosper and do well when they adopt western style systems and attitudes which they have done so. Immigrants generally fully embrace the best of western culture and strengthen it. It’s conservative low class westerners who in the name of defending it, have weakened and declined it. This is a shame and a disgrace.
For Westerners to try to decline the west at this time of great progress, and need for progress is unthinkable and unforgivable. It also is completely contrary to the proclaimed aims of the low class, and therefore makes no sense until you understand its all based on racism and class resentment.
To be honest, for western culture to prevail and win, upper and middle class ideals and values need to lead, be taught and be status quo, and low and far values and thinking thrown out forever. This is how the First and western world will survive, thrive and become great again. It is the only way.
