I used to mow the lawn with a pushmower that was fucked up and hard as hell to start, especially for a scrawny 11 year old, because my dad forced me to. Then we moved to a house with 3/4 of an acre of lawn and I mowed THAT by hand. Then he got a riding mower, but made me do two passes around the edges so that there'd be room to turn for my younger sibling to ride the mower. Then I moved and my dad lost motivation to make my younger brothers mow the lawn so he started just doing it himself.

I will NEVER EVER own a lawn, ever. If I buy a house with a lawn, I will tear it up and replace it with a permaculture garden. FUCK GRASS.

Had a gas mower, then it got clogged. Then I splurged on a electric mower, my god it made 10x the difference not breathing the fumes and being silent compared to the old mower.
My leg got fucked so had to get a electric riding mower so the city didnt yell at me. Paid $2000 for it instead of getting a Ryobi model but totally worth it after 3 years. Lawn before was an hour with charging break, lawn with riding only takes about 20-25 mins.

The government/media uses income, but that's obviously just propaganda. The real determination is in how you earn your money.
Lower class: works for someone else. Trades time/labor for currency.
Middle class: works for himself. Still labors but produces something of value in exchange for currency.
Upper class: does not work. Hires others to work for him and lives off the return of his investments.
Untouchables: NEETs and welfare queens.

The middle class is long long dead. Everyone is lower class but the government uses the media to propagandize people to think they're not so that they don't develop any class consciousness and start doing pesky things like strikes or collective bargaining.

The only reason you should ever buy a house is if you're in the place where you're reasonably sure you're going to live in for the rest of your life, and either a) you're planning on starting a family soon or b) you lucked into money and can pay off the entire thing.

I'm having vietnam flashbacks of my friends and family doing this to pay off their student loans after their grandparents died. All that money gone. Here's some I can think off the top of my head.

>"Yeah we sold Granma and Granpa's jewellery, gold and stamps. We're going to use it to buy a new car/vacation/remodel!"
>"I still have a hefty amount from my grandfather's inheritance. I can spend my time in school as long as I want. Plus alot of play money too if I'm feeling generous to myself. That's what it means to be educated and wealthy ;)"

One thing I've found throughout my life is that any grandparent/father mades a successful business, the kids end up screwing up in whatever field they are in, either work back into the business or continue "pursuing their passion", and continue to receive money support well into their 40s while having teenage children. It breaks my heart knowing these grandkids are going to end up in the poorhouse ontop of being spoiled and entitled with their parents because they squandered their inherited wealth.

Are you being serious?

You are correct on income depending on the circumstance, though your pool cleaner example is terrible.

The pool cleaner is whatever he wants to be. That's largely subjective. He has his own TIME
you cannot get back TIME. no matter how much money you have TIME CANNOT BE BOUGHT BACK.

Most middle class workers do not have the ability to control their own time. The pool cleaner depending on the area he lives in could hire workers, be it illegal immigrants a family member or a craigslist ad. Then he takes a pay cut but he could automate his business by running macros spam posting pool cleanings in the area to make up for it. Long story short; he can use his time much more effectively as he focuses on lowering his expenses and increasing his cashflow.

The biggest difference between middle class,lower class and the rich + neets is the time factor. Who ever has the greatest control of their own personal time wins the game of life.

neets living in their parents basement untouchable sure, neets who got rich off crypto - upperclass hardly.

It depends on how the crypto funds are being used, and what they plan to do with. Also the total dollar amount in whatever currency.

Consider this:
Neet has roughly 50k in crypto post bull run. He cashes out the full 50k, and purchases a shitty econ website cashflowing $400 per month for 50k. Within 6months the neet was able to properly do seo on the website and it now cashflows 4.5k in total income per month.

Said neet now has the option of keeping the website or selling it for 2.5 times earnings.

Who would you consider to be upper class, rich or middle class, or still a neet?

If he's putting labor into the site, he's middle class. If it's entirely hands off passive income, he's upper class. And I was originally thinking of someone who made $5M or more on crypto and now has enough cash that they never have to work again, that's upper class.

Of course, that's upper class ECONOMICALLY. Socially, pfft, of course not. Social class is different from economic class. That's why people think my example of the goldman sachs trader making $5M/yr being lower class is ridiculous. He's lower class economically because he still has to put on a suit, show up on time, and get yelled at by his fat boss. Socially, however, he might be in the yacht club and banging rich dudes' wives and living in a Manhattan penthouse.
