Bourgeoisie: (n) the middle class, typically with reference to its perceived materialistic values
Certain locks were made to be universal, and opened by a single common key.
It was so simple. You just put the skeleton key in the lock and it opened up the door.
You didn’t have to have key cards or specially-ground units specifically designed to open particular doors. Of course, it fell by the wayside because it didn’t provide much in the way of privacy.
But as we consider the future of our country, with a desire to honor the needs of its people, let us realize that leading with finance or the ownership of things may be a good campaign approach, but it does not do very much to further our joining together as a nation.
Yes, we need a middle class. That middle class should have solvency. But that solvency should be used to expand the vision of those families to look for reasons to help others.
As it pertains to the bourgeoisie, you cannot simply give money to people and think it will miraculously turn into mercy.
Therefore–as in the case of the skeleton key–the most important thing we can do is teach people to value each other so when they do go into the marketplace and achieve success, or even prosperity, they will open their hearts to use their profits to profit others.
