Teresa May tells it like it is

"That means fighting against the burning injustice that if you are born poor you will die, on average, nine years earlier than others. If you are black you are treated more harshly by the criminal justice system than if you are white. If you are a white working-class boy you are less likely than anybody else in Britain to go to university. If you are at a state school you are less likely to reach the top professions than if you are educated privately. If you are a woman you will earn less than a man. If you suffer from mental health problems, there is not enough help to hand. If you are young you will find it harder than ever before to own your own home.”

Class system has been around a long time. Hammurapi detailed the elite, the commoners, and the slaves, and then subclasses of females. The Romans captured and imprisoned, or converted to slaves all northers including the Slavs, where the word slaves is likely from.  The US had there black slaves, which were not considered human by the Catholic Church, hence suitable to enslave. The natives were not suitable for slaves for they would murder the owners when they got the chance.  They see nothing wrong with killing and suicide. Oh well. Now we live in the aftermath of all this. There need to be a plan, front and center, on what and how this is to work. There is none. We have depended on religion to teach people how to live, and the result has been; well, no classes except for the 1%, and the welfare poor.

We still have slaves, wage slaves, and sex slaves, and lack of opportunity slaves. Little has changed; we are led to slavery; we can leave and be poor... that is the choices. If we want anything, then we are slaves to the economy. Yet we claim to be free, it is our choice to work... or have less. But slavery is banned... in name only, oh well, in the end we all just die anyway.
