Description

All social classes have unspoken rules. From A-list celebrities to teachers, doctors, lawyers, and journalists — there are social norms that govern us, whether we realize it or not. This week on Hidden Brain, we look celebrity culture, as well as another elite group: the yoga-loving, Whole Foods-shopping, highly-educated people whom one researcher calls the new "aspirational class." This episode is from December 2017.

This type of research has little positive influence on the society. Some people are striving to make zip codes not matter to children's future, but this researcher only cares about the 1%.

So many inferences made subjectively by the researcher. Whatever happened to the scientific method? Too many possible influences ignored here.

Rudy TheCat Identity politics happened. #MeToo happened. There is no longer "truth"…. just "speak MY/YOUR truth" then condemn all dissenters who dare question as the enemies.... seeking to keep the patriarchal/racial institutions in place for pure self-interest greed.
