Well, you’re talking about the same classism I’m referring to. I wasn’t referring to economic class but a sense of social class or “taste class”.
I see space for a spectrum of taste difference – and I recognize taste difference – so I do not understand “taste classes”: the superiority of the spiritual coke vs the profane rc cola for example.
I understand people preferring that which they prefer and coagulating in a mass to those of similar preferences as that’s a common thing to do.
But the spiritual vs profane distinction as a fixed hierarchy, I do not understand much.
For example; I generally prefer quiet. The sounds of nature. A fan running. Right now I’m sitting on a screened porch with a fan running, the rain lightly falling, some thunder in the background.
This suits my taste and it is where and how I like to be which is why my computer’s here, basically outside.
But on the other hand if I am indoors in a noisy crowded environment for long periods of time with just people to talk to all at once, this does not suit my preference. I get a sense of disgust thinking about it as my porch experience is far superior: FOR ME.
But at which point do I switch that to: My experience is far superior for all?
Or at which point to I switch to: Those of us who enjoy the superior porch outdoor computing environment taste a realm far above the profane indoor noisy drinking parties?
I don’t because it’s taste.
I can’t even say: I am superior to those who feel they are superior to others because it’s a case of my not understanding, not a case of being better.
