Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is a really interesting diary, thanks for putting it together.  I've never come across any discussion of class in this way before, and it certainly goes some way in breaking beyond the constraints of the Marxist view on class.  

It ought to be quite clear that class cannot be broken down into rich vs poor anymore, and opportunities and barriers are far more complex than that. Your discussion here is one way of framing it, although I'm sure there could be many variations. It doesn't feel as though political thinking has moved on enough to take this into consideration though, hence the numerous failing political interventions in various areas.  Good food for thought here, thanks.
