A Belly Feeding Upon Itself

A Belly Feeding Upon Itself

The sole method the exploited have to break their chains: violence. ~Mario Vargas Llosa Being a life long member of the middle class progressing in stature from lower-middle through middle-middle now flirting with upper-middle, I am as far removed from understanding the challenges faced by the lower classes as a hawk is from the moon.
