The middle class was built on the collective bargaining rights for labor. The middle class is a fundamental element of a healthy functioning democracy. The other part is government that respects and heads the will of the majority.

The Chinese probably more so to smallpox (not due, however, to Lord Jeffrey Amherst and those infected blankets)
