What do you think of the class system in America?

Asked by burntbonez (5194 points ) December 11th, 2012

If you have money, you can buy yourself a doctor’s cell phone number which entitles you to immediate service whenever you want it. You can buy yourself a fast trip through the airport. You can buy your children internships at the best companies. If you’re in prison, you can buy yourself a nicer cell. Hell, you can even buy yourself organs if you need them.

And that doesn’t count the clothes, food, boats, cars, private planes and god knows what else there is to consume. We can purchase not only things now, but privilege.

What do you think? Is there anything that this country should guarantee equally for all, or is this the appropriate way American should be run?
