Which family would you consider of 'a higher class' than the other...a chavvy (but hard working) family with plenty money who value their lcd tvs highly, or an artistic family with little money who buy second hand clothes and who value pianos etc as valuable items?

The first family is of a higher class in regards to their place in modern society society. More money/bigger house = higher class.

Class definition is strongly related to purchasing power, your first example is definitely one of a higher "class" than the second one. You can always admire the talent, values and way of life of the artistic but modest family though.

As I'm sure most of you know by now, I am the epitome of class...

and as such, this thread is now about my extremely superior social status.

THIS is a class

If it were socially acceptable, I would drape myself in velvet.

Depends on how you define class, that's only one way.

For instance under a Marxist definition of class (probably one of the more important ways of looking at class) they'd both be the same class, The Proletariat.
Unless of course the artistic family are somehow able to stay completely away from the force of capital and business (probably impossible) and therefore are able to control their own means of production without outside influence, thereby not experiencing alienation. They'd probably starve to death though.

No, that is a 'room', if it had people being taught in it, then it would be a class.

This is true, you can have members of the aristocracy who are completely skint but still regarded as belonging to the 'upper' class.

I think it's mainly to do with breeding and social circles, especialy social circles, which of course money often helps you to enter into.

Nah, bro. Class is clapper light with a dimmer controlled by the strength of your claps in your toilet. that way you'll be entertained for hours on the loo.


Nah, class is having a butler to operate the light switch for you.

So what is it if you use an iPhone app to control the light?

That's called being a 'gadget nerd'.

Now all i have to do is work on an app to control my bathroom lights, and then get an iPhone.
Which I wouldn't, because it's just not value for money as far as I'm concenred.

Nah, for example a millionaire footballer is still working class. He earns a wage, can be fired, and doesn't control the means of production.

No, but that might only mean he has more money than sense(or taste).
Also, if you get too close, he might try to handle your balls.

It's important if you're trying to keep the top dogs at the top and the others somewhere below but all too often people are judged based on their percieved social class rather than on their personal merits and qualities. That's when the class system sucks.
