A two-tier society is one having primarily only rich and poor, with a small or nonexistent middle class. Such society is plagued by a grossly uneven distribution of wealth and undesirable characteristics such as a large homeless population nearby homes having immense economic value.
Liberal politics and culture are more likely to create a two-tiered society than conservative policies are. For example, pockets of California, such as Palo Alto, are two-tiered societies today. Impoverished families live out of run-down RV's parked alongside Stanford University and outside of the headquarters of Google. One cause of this state happens when liberal corporations import millions of low wage workers through mass migration, replacing their native-born workers. Another cause is socialist economic policies, such as high taxation and the welfare state, which reduce the wealth of the middle class, while failing to improve the lives of the poor and not affecting the standard of living of the wealthy. As evidence of this, income inequality is significantly worse in blue states than in red states.
