Dern right I can pass an 8th grade test. I took the 8th grade for 4 years in a row, and memorized the books. I voted every year, and shaved every day back then.

A healthy society is one that is shaped like a pyramid. The base, the lowest working class, is very broad. Above it is a slightly smaller class of more skilled workers. Layer upon layer this is repeated, with each layer being a little smaller and a little more educated than the layer beneath it. At the top is a very small pinnacle of well educated people, the people who manage society and move civilization forward.
We in the USA, with our failed tax funded Socialist educational system have created an unhealthy and unstable structure. It is narrow at the bottom, fat at the middle, and top heavy.
"WRONG" our society is shaped like an hour glass. with the poor spread out at the bottom. the working class(what's left of them) in the middle, then the rich elite (politicians, bankers, old money), and all that kind of thieving trash at the top. That small section in the middle is still trying to support them all, but when the last one is worked to death, the rich will topple on the poor, and all will die.

You are right that our society is not shaped like a pyramid. A healthy society organized according to Natural Law is shaped like a pyramid. Ours is not a healthy society organized according to Natural Law.

You are wrong when you say that it is an hour glass. Our society has turned into something that has a small base of working class people, a wide, flat layer of "middle" class on top of them, and a tiny elite at the top. It is not natural. It is unstable and it can't stand. Eventually the working class base will shrink until it is too narrow to support the wide, flat middle class and the whole thing will fall over.
