The haves and the hav-nots: a universal distinction. It's bigger than race or gender. It's more specific and true. And now, after a beer, I'm going to say what needs expressing. The Haves have already got theirs and they don't want anyone to catch up. They view the world as a grand competition and if the middle class was to get comfortable and have more of the perks, then they couldn't justify all the life energy that they are throwing away chasing the dollar and setting up hurtles so that their space remains exclusive. Inclusiveness is a foreign concept.
