Recognize the Survival Class

Better Predict the Future

Survival is the most fundamental of all human motivations.  The Survival Class is a category of citizens who are increasingly skeptical that the Ruling Class will protect its security, prosperity, health and liberty.  Existing categories like left, right, conservative, liberal, progressive, Democrat, Republican, Labour, Socialist, Green, etc. are uninformative regarding societal predictions.  Useful categories are required for human and artificial intelligence decision making.
If one can recognize the emerging themes within the Survival Class in the context of the Ruling and Enabling Classes he/she will have a societal prediction advantage.  After all, it was the Survival Class that surprised the Ruling Class in the US 2016 presidential election and the 2016 BREXIT vote in the UK.  Survival Class themes will also determine the 2020 US presidential election.

The Enabling Class (EC) enables the Ruling Class.  In general, the EC trusts and believes that the RC is the source of its virtue, economic prosperity, security, social acceptance and happiness.  In return the EC enforces and promotes the beliefs and policies of the RC.  EC'ers also covet the social acceptance of other EC'ers and the RC.  ECers are willing participants in the societal survival chain.

The Ruling Class (RC) covets power, influence, wealth, and the acceptance of other RC'ers and EC'ers.  One might say that all these are common human desires.  Yet the difference is that the RC views many of these desires as rights to be obtained or forced with its power, policies and influence - maintaining their position at the top of the societal survival chain.

The Survival Class (SC) believes they cannot trust the Ruling Class to deliver security, prosperity, health and liberty - that individual responsibility and initiative are required.  Minimizing the power of the Ruling Class is a survival strategy because the Survival Class is at the bottom of the societal survival chain.

Predicting the 2020 US Presidential Election

Prediction hypothesis: The Biden ticket will be the choice of the Ruling and Enabling classes.  The Survival Class will predominately vote for the Trump ticket.  The election scale will tip based on the dynamics of the classes among each other.  (more)
