第二次世界大战后,中产阶级的崛起改变了西方社会中富人和穷人的两极社会结构,一直被视为维护西方社会稳定秩序的主要社会因素。近年来,随着经济全球化的发展,全球经济因素的流动,西方中产阶级就业机会的丧失以及社会地位的危机,都激起了他们的愤怒。 2019年6月12日,斯坦福大学胡佛研究所历史学家Victor Davis Hanson发表了一篇论文《华盛顿时报》,分析其原因和后果。

中产阶级抱怨什么?

首先,非法移民和边境开放导致社会混乱。其次,世界精英们利用全球化为自己的企业寻找全球市场并获得了大量财富,但新的全球市场和跨境商业交易促使西方国家将其业务和制造业转向低成本劳动力。其他国家造成国内制造业下滑。第三,未经选举的官僚机构呈指数增长。这些官僚由终身监督员,规划人员,审计员,检查员和会计师组成。中产阶级是他们的工作目标,但他们的权力不受限制。第四,世界上新媒体的数量达到了数十亿,但他们所做的不是报道事实,而是强迫他们灌输思想。第五,学术界已经变得政治化,教育提供的学习内容越来越少,但收费越来越高。第六,社会规划已成为一个只会增加住房,能源和交通成本的乌托邦。

All these complaints reflect the reality facing the middle class in Western society. In social policy, that is, the rich have the ability and social influence to be plagued by higher taxes and fees, or can avoid them altogether, and the middle class is always at a disadvantage. For example, the green development policy proposed that the people should tighten their belts, but did not ask the elite to cut the second and third houses and the use of overseas vacations, luxury cars, private jets and high-tech equipment.

In the field of education, managers of Western public primary and secondary schools and universities tend to prefer private schools to conduct strict traditional training for their children. Elites send their children to the university by their connections. The university has catered to their needs and increased the diversity of managers, which has led to a multiplication of the university's various expenses. Students in middle-class families who are in debt can only borrow money to pay various fees.

On the issue of immigration, the elites who support the open borders are convinced that these immigrants will not have a substantial impact on their own communities, schools and privileged lifestyles, and cannot understand the mental state of so-called xenophobic, racist or nativist . However, only non-elite groups have directly experienced the sudden influx of illegal immigrants into their communities, directly affecting social resources, schools and security.
