Sociology of crowding

When we crowd the bus, we will find an interesting phenomenon. Before we get on the bus, we always yell to let us get on the bus. Everyone moves in. There is still room inside. When we are pushed up, we begin to hate others to push up again. We will brag that it is too crowded to move. You can wait for the next car and move the position reluctantly.
The change of face before and after getting on the bus is nothing but different positions and interests. Once we occupy a favorable position in society, monopolize social resources, become successful people, and climb into the elite circle, we will instinctively have an impulse to raise the threshold, reduce competition, and protect vested interests.
As long as we observe the society carefully, we can find many examples from the numerous phenomena. For example, in the officialdom, officials A think that officials B will pose a threat to their own promotion, and they will try to suppress and exclude each other. For example, in the economic field, monopoly enterprises will take various measures to squeeze their rivals if they are afraid that other enterprises will take a share. For example, in the literary and art circles, famous directors and writers are not uncommon in suppressing young directors and writers... This is all their own idea of crowding into the car and not wanting others to crow up again and grab their own "space". After all, competing with others for food is no better than eating alone! Most people who get off the bus in a hurry to work will not believe what the people on the bus say. The people on the bus want to reject the competition, but the people under the bus still try their best to get on, and the people on the bus can only shrink back reluctantly to endure a journey of sweating, suffocation and bad mood.
However, if the people on the bus are replaced by the privileged class, monopoly group and elite group in the society, they not only don't like others to occupy their space, but also have the ability to set the threshold to prevent or even prevent people from getting on the bus. At this time, the bus is more like a private car, and the problem is complicated. In this case, people under the car have two choices: either look at the car and sigh, or force them to get on the car. The former is to swallow their pride and accept adversity, while the latter is to fight against it; The former is hidden danger in peace, while the latter is conflict caused by contradiction.
As a result, it is not the people in the car, but the people on the car. They may destroy the principle of fair competition under the market economy through monopoly; Or use the discourse power to create a strong voice; Or set up barriers to block the passage of social mobility, and eventually dominate a "bus", becoming a so-called special interest group. Such a "bus" will inevitably deviate from the normal driving route.
Obviously, if we want to return it to the normal driving route, we can only restore the "public" face of the bus, which will have some restrictions on the people who operate the "bus". In addition, in the face of the "bus" where there is still a place to live, people under the bus should not be afraid of being rejected by others, nor should they expect others to give alms, so they have to fight for their own rights on their own.
