On middle class fascination and the UPA government

Love-hate relationship with the state

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Retributions has an excellent post on the middle class apathy’ that translates itself into support for the reform-credential-rich-reform-poor UPA government:

So what really explains the continued middle class fascination with the present regime?

The answer strangely enough is paradoxical. At one level, the middle class is deeply suspicious of the government and yet it thinks by closing its eyes, it can eclipse the all pervasive influence of the state. On the other hand, it stills craves for state largesse unable to cut the gordian knot which ties it to the government. [Retributions]
