Do You Live In A Bubble?

There exists a new upper class that’s completely disconnected from the average white American and American culture at large, argues Charles Murray, a libertarian political scientist and author.

Take this 25-question quiz, based on a similar one published in Murray’s 2012 book, “Coming Apart: The State of White America 1960-2010,” to find out just how thick your bubble is.

Yes, the comments are good fun to read.

I don't take these quizzes *too* seriously; I thought it did a good job of identifying just what the creator said it would: that upper-class people don't have much in common with, or even know much about, lower- and working-class people. Except for the fact that some people don't like to have their eyes opened, I can't imagine why that would be an earth-shattering revelation.
