    I respect and pay tribute to the brave working class people who died and fought in the world wars. But I can only hold contempt for the middle and upper classes that sent them to their brutal deaths at such young ages in these particular wars.
    what upper classes?

    I guess there's an element of truth in the fact that a lot of people in high positions didn't really contribute as much as most soldiers did.

    Do you not know which social strata comprises the upper class? The aristocracy, politicians, officers, those with the power to enforce their will (in this case orders) upon others...

    well hang on there. i would agree many are in the upper classes, but politicians by the very fact that they are politicians does not classify them as being upper class. upper class refers to inherited wealth, estate and title.

    my point was that the entire middle class and upper class was to blame for working class downfall. entire nonsense. a select number of the ruling class made decisions to which a broad range of society was affected.
