30 Statistics That Show That The Middle Class Is Dying Right In Front Of Our Eyes As We Enter 2012

Are You Prepared For The Coming Economic Collapse And The Next Great Depression?

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com

Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most vibrant middle class that the world has ever seen. Unfortunately, that is rapidly changing. The statistics that you are about to read prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the U.S. middle class is dying right in front of our eyes as we enter 2012. The decline of the middle class is not something that has happened all of a sudden. Rather, there has been a relentless grinding down of the middle class over the last several decades.

Millions of our jobs have been shipped overseas, the rate of inflation has far outpaced the rate that our wages have grown, and overwhelming debt has choked the financial life out of millions of American families. Every single day, more Americans fall out of the middle class and into poverty. In fact, more Americans fell into poverty last year than has ever been recorded before.

Revolution is coming one way or another. It will be AMAZING how much the now apathetic public will suddenly care once they have nothing to eat.

Then heaven help the sick fucks who have done this to us!

Agree with pretty much everything except this. This is EXACTLY how capitalism is supposed to work. Marx wrote it.

Quite. Unchecked capitalism is a self destructive society. But adapted and not left to it's own devices I believe it can work.

But that's socialism - a free market with a strong state.

then let there be socialism. It's a very broad ideal though. I believe in private property but I like socialized healthcare. And it's become such a dirty word. Like techno.

Only in the US, which is pretty much a hopeless case anyways.

And socialism does have (very strong) private property rights - just ask Europeans. However, these rights don't extend to corporations nearly as much as in the US.

Part of the problem with the idea of "the middle class" is that anyone who is so called white is automatically in it regardless of how poor he/she really is. My parents always told me they thought of themselves as lower middle class. Yet I have seen their income statments for those years. We had that poor person's child insurance and where on the free lunch program at times in school. And that is saying something to be acceptable to those programs as a white person.

You are such an optimist. What will really happen is that white republicans will blame democrats, blacks, and hispanics, while democrats, blacks, and hispanics will blame white republics. Everyone will blame the Chinese and possibly Jews. And no one will look in the mirror to find the cause of the problem. The bankers, who made all this possible, will slip into the background and make tons of money from the chaos while the moronic masses starve and fight each other. All I say is good riddance to a disgusting society.

How do you summize something so balanced? I think something more inline with a conquest of that vernacular region commonly called The West will happen. Like ethnic clensing. Because judging by the education system, every individual is guilty by association. For what? Everything. So blend in. The world needs someone to blame and we're it.

Wonder if this will cause feminism to collapse? I mean fewer and fewer lonely guys to support the welfare state for the baby mamas cock hoping on those bad boys.

Socialism is the perfect system. It provides a balance such that economy can grow in a free market environment, but with sufficient regulation to prevent monopolizing tendencies and funneling of wealth to a very narrow portion of the population. It works well for Scandinavian countries who, despite harsh climate, are consistently at the top of polls that gauge happiness levels of the population.

I certainly hope that America collapses soon, as we rightly deserve to. Most Americans don't know much of anything, nor how we came to be in the first place, never-mind the fucking welfare system for the slut baby-momma's.

Lots of them probably didn't even know that yesterday was Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7th, 1941.

Fuck these idiots all to hell and gone. Read it and weep Americans. The good days are gone and they ain't
coming back, thanks to the elites:
