Another word for 'new money'. The real bourgeoisie were more middle class than new money, but the divide that separated the serfs from the bourgeoisie, nobility, clergy and royals was very large.

A class of wealthy Capitalists. Many of those within the bourgeoisie are convinced that they are better than people who differ from them, which is bullshit because no-one is better than anyone else.
If you think you are better than other people just because you have wealth, you do not deserve that wealth whatsoever and I hope you lose it for being so arrogant. You make other people feel bad, and the majority of homeless people actually deserve what you have because they are less horrible than you.
