“the well off and rich arent the same”
listen i dont know why we’re pretending classism is only ‘billionaires vs everybody else’ and how they are the only people who benefit from their wealth but im so tired of this. i mean it SHOULD be. but thats not how the “well off” operate. people need to focus this energy on getting the “well off” to align with the poor. Because they benefit from the poor’s oppression too and they think they’re closer to billionaires when they will never be.
poor people dont need to be “reminded” that children of wealthy families shouldn’t feel guilty about their families’ wealth. the children of the wealthy and well off need to be reminded that the poor are human beings who deserve not to be exploited and treated like subhuman. that the system made them poor and keeps them poor, not bad choices or bad decisions. there’s no morality in being poor. they aren’t bad people and shouldn’t be judged based on how much labor they produce. the well off need to fuckin put in work to dismantle classism and fight against exploitation.
stop coddling the upper class from the lower class. stop scolding the poor like theyre children.
