My main point is that when we focus on utility, we see poverty as the social problem.
When we focus on status, we see inequality as the social problem.
And when we apply the tenets of democracy and "libery" we get different results.
I don't see anything wrong with this guy who wanted to be a bus driver.
I'll be honest, there are days I wish I had become a carpenter like my father did.
About status, I would say that if we recognize that the problem of class in society is something deeper than income and wealth, we make a giant leap towards creating a society where the principals of equality that we apply to persons as citizens, to person as workers as well.
I intended this to be a rant against inequality, I'm not sure I entirely succeeded.
And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
