CLASS is CRASS in the Global Village

The Middle Class was merely a holding place for those destined to move up and those destined to fall down. It was mostly an illusion.

In the Global Village, residents are interdependent but not cast at birth. On any given day, an individual may thrive or fail based on their inherent value to the Common Good of the Village. Today, the Village needs empathetic Caregivers to deal with a sudden surge in residents with Autism or Alzheimer’s. Tomorrow the Village may need Civil Engineers able to build, repair, or maintain the Infrastructure. Neither of these needs are long term nor will they lead to a lifetime career. However, anyone with the aptitude and desire to contribute is eligible for immediate free training to qualify. There are no barriers to success because, in the Global Village, success is in the best interest of every resident. Unlike the measures used to define class status in the Industrial Park, a resident of the Village rises or falls based on their inherent value to the common good.

Class is crass in the Global Village.
