SOCIAL CLASS SUMMARY

Social class molds .the life-adjustment patterns of individuals the lower class tends 'to be liberal in political action connected with economic benefits and conservative in accepting other social changes; while the opposite tends to be true of the upper class. An alleged "new class" consists of government servants and those working in some aspect of communication. These communications elite has upper-class income but is more liberal in social and political attitudes than the business elite. Current scientific interest in class has shifted from the Marxist theory of class warfare to the struggle for individual social mobility and a lessening of the amount of inequality between classes. Social class lines have not been eliminated in socialist societies. Communist societies are not class less but, rather, have developed a very different kind of class
system.
