Class Differences in Society

Class differences in society still exist.

And though our history is rife with them, and you see how dramatic and significant they can be in periods of slavery and massive social injustice… they still permeate culture today.

This brilliant short story or comic created by Auckland based artist Toby Morris. (Support his beautiful work!)

Two columns build up over the lives of two people, one from a low income family, the other a middle, or upper middle class family.

We see the progression, the slow innocuous build up.

What seems like only a small difference accrues in small ways over time, and “privilege” grows in such a subtle way that it’s not even recognized by the character that has enjoyed it.

Original content published on The Wireless and we’d encourage you to click through to them to read the full strip. It’s brilliant.

All of us, regardless of class, would do well to spend a moment every day appreciating any small positives we have in life. Further, remembering that not everyone has them.
