Why does middle class seat on the fence ?
Our consciousness , belief , perception gets shaped and molded by the society we live in. And throughout history societieal values and philosophies are created such a way that it helps the ruling class of the society.
Current socio-economic structure worships selfishness , isolation and tries to defame unity , selflessness because if we unite ourselves that would be problematic for the ruling class.
It promotes competition amongst each other instead of working as a group by helping eachother in a democratic fashion.
Our society promotes Netflix and chill in your home alone instead of playing football outside with your friends.
Even though humans are social beings but our socio-economic structure enforces us to be an isolated, selfish Animal because the idea of unification of the masses haunts the ruling class.
This promotion or subscription of being selfish starts from your childhood via The cartoon, news , movies, glossy papers of magazines etc.
So in this way ideas of selfishness, animal instincts, isolation are slowly injected to the common mass.
Now as middle class tends to be more educated they know that there is a better way that humans are social beings , that they are supposed to help eachother , be empathetic towards each other but on the other hand they are under the pressure of this socioeconomic structure which supports the anti thesis. Hence comes the conflict . Which causes the indecision amongst the middle class.
