According to Charles Murray’s class test speech, the elite are different people from the rest of society. In fact, they are completely separating themselves and forming conclaves and societies that are not in the best interest of everyone else. Charles explains that this is troublesome for the rest of America’s countrymen because the elite are who control the nation and its wealth.
This class test speech brings up an actual test that Charles created for the upper elite to take. Some of the questions included whether they have walked on a factory floor or held a job that created a body part to become sore at the end of the day. He says if an individual answered no to any of these questions, they could not possibly know what it’s like to be a common member of society.
