In Robinson Crusoe, by Daniel Defoe, there is lots of talk of the "middle class" by Crusoe's father. According to him, the middle class was the best class to be a part of, for you needn't worry about all the extremes that the high and low had to (media attention to not having a place to sleep).
Today in America, most people are what would be considered “middle class” (there also also upper and lower middle class, but we’re not going to get into that). This basically just means that we’re not rich, but we’re not poor; we have enough money to get buy, but not enough to have three Lamborghinis. I agree with Crusoe’s father in this book--middle class life can be “easier” than upper or lower classes--you don’t have to worry about where to sleep, how you’re going to eat dinner, but you also don’t have to worry about The Tabloids.
