Social Class Calculator

the poor or the rich, the dressed fine or those with cheap outfit: they all can be happy: if no one is trying to destroy their dignity and liberty.

P.S.:
Yesterday I found a CLASS CALCULATOR published at www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine – hey – a silly tool, isn’t it? Is THAT the result of social sciences, no further thinking and analyzing?

if you like, then find out your own social class, are you:
Elite
Established middle class
Technical middle class
New affluent workers
Traditional working class
Emergent service workers

  10. So true, I agree with you. The tool is pointless. I actually had fun changing answers and whatever you pick up in the social and cultural answers, the class only changed when I changed the income/savings/housing answers. Is this what we are? Just consumers and wealth accumulators? Isn’t there much more to life than just money? I know it’s a silly question and it risks of going down the road of stale rhetoric, but if such are the tools used to define a society, then I think the Real social science has gone down the drain. Pointless, pointless tool.
    You said it all: dignity and liberty!
    Thank you, Frizz, for this post 😀

  11. The things that are most important to me cannot be bought. Social class is not a factor in this.

  12. they’re just clothes. They cover our body, keep us warm, shield us from the sun or the wind. Why do many have to put so much importance to them?
