Its true.You could win £100 million in the lottery but you will never move class because it is about much more than money.Sid wrote:Aye, spot on Laz.They're show offs, giving it loads about how they bought one item from John Lewis, generally insecure, and concerned with how they appear to others. We live in an aspirational society were you're told to better yourself by breaking out of your social class - even though it is virtually impossible. I came across someone recently who was giving it loads about how they know people in Kensington, and I just absolutely do not give two fucks. That stuff holds zero traction wth me.
Its interesting also how much we think we have freedom and how much control we have over our lives.For hundreds of years we were held in check by religion. This has been replaced by the mortgage,which ensures we keep working hard and play the game. I've always said that the real way to civil unrest and getting true change is by financial rebellion. If you could organise a significant number of people to refuse to pay their mortgage/credit for just 2 months it would cause fiscal and legal chaos.Just a thought!
