We are a nation obsessed with Class, Status, Money and Power. Apparently these are what decides our worth as a human being and in most cases dictates our standard of living, our goals and achievements but most of all our dreams. In result of this pathetic mindset we are a nation of snobs who have the audacity to assume they are superior to others on the premise of their Wealth, Education and Class etc.
We know the divide between Classes. Rich versus Poor is widening but I’m sure this can be resolved at the ballot box, but what can we do about Snobbery?? Snobbery is nothing more than bullying, it’s cruel, damaging, degrading and pompous. To look down on a fellow human being with disgust, disapproval and making that person feel inadequate, less than or not worthy is atrocious behaviour and has to stop.
Unfortunately, this attitude of superiority runs deep, its bred into each generation. So when I read an article stating “Class discrimination should be treated as seriously as Racism or Sexism” and that the British Psychological Society call for the Equality Law to include Class, I was so excited because these ideas are just the tip of the iceberg its sign that things will change. Yes, it’ll be extremely slow but at least we’re going in the right direction. We’ll never rid the country of Snobs there will always those who will judge and ridicule others it’s in their nature, but if we are protected by law, it can only be a positive.
