  • Inevitability of social class

    It is human nature to form groups and fight for dominance and we see this through animals as well. Human beings long for power and many people use the idea of becoming part of higher class to motivate them to work harder in life and as proof that they have succeeded in life.

  • So many people are affected by social classes

    There is a spectrum of, poverty, to what type of house you live in, to what phone you have. So, whether you agree with it or not, social classes are a part of society. One example of a social class is North Korea, they are thought of as a secret country that wants to kill the world, but in real life it is a joyful place.

  • Not being fair does not stop it from being there

    You might think it's unfair that John got the job but you didn't. You might think that Sally should have won the competition instead. But they didn't, and it happened for a reason. It could have been biological, it could have been cognitive, it could be due to a host of other reasons. But there exists a basic similarity between everyone: we're all different. And if we're different, then how can we be expected to be treated the same? Social classes exists because we recognize this fact, and as long as two people still stand on this Earth, there will be some form of social classification.

  • Some people will always be more equal than others.

    It's just human nature to separate and classify things. And people are one of the objects we most like to separate and classify. As long as there is income and education disparity (in other words, forever) there will always be a world divided into social classes. Life just isn't kind or fair.

  • Yes, it seems so.

    It seems from earliest times that people have divided up into certain classes, and those classes had different levels of prestige. It almost seems like our nature to form groups that then struggle against each other for dominance. There doesn't seem to be any reason that it has to be that way, and if you try to imagine a world in which everyone would be equal it is imaginable, but it is hard to understand how it would be possible. Maybe we have done it this way for so long that is has become ingrained in our thinking that it is a natural way to exist.

  • I don't think we can ever move past that

    Humans have always loved organizing themselves in groups. This can be based on appearance, occupation, or wealth. Even if we somehow got rid of a currency driven society, people would still be divided based on their occupation. Their will always be jobs that will be considered more distinguished and important. These jobs will likely require more education and inherent intelligence which will lead to distinction from other jobs.

  • Human beings and Pyramid schemes

    As long as human beings lust and long for power, we shall be stratified. The cunning and dastardly will find a way to outwit the trusting and giving, thereby elevating themselves on the shoulders of those below them. In some ways, this is necessary for progress though. Having something to aspire to motivates us, gives us a goal, meaning. If we were all on the same level, what would be the purpose of success?

  • This question is too broad to be true

    In the animal kingdom, certain animals travel in packs, and others don't, in specific wolves travel together, live and hunt together. It is natural to claim power, there is a certain male dominance thing in nature (including humans), men are biologically superior for fighting, protecting and are generally the more dominant sex. Now there have been studies on many wold packs and their ranking and how the internal operations would work, this has revealed a slim outlier, there have been some packs of wolfs that when examined closely over a period of time, found to have no one leader, instead all wolfs have a say in what the pack would do and think that no one wolf is above the other. This is, however found only (to my knowledge) in smaller packs of nine or less, this however is large enough to classify as a "society" and rendering the specific wording of this question false. If even one outlier is found, the answer is no, there is no middle ground, no majority ruling, the answer is no. In humans as well, during the time where humans were evolving into homo sapiens, there is no way to specifically tell through bones and rocks what class in the early societies was like, but we can tell that from preserved cave drawings and paintings that humans would hunt together, live together, and travel together, all together, now if our minds were still evolving from our primitive counterparts, the apes we can infer that we would (early on) have a similar societal grouping, you take care of yours and ill take mine, no one above the other style that most ape groups have. Though now you would think we evolved from gorillas because of our governments and monarchies that we establish, for one to rule all, still counts as a social class, it is possible, and the answer is no, social classes will not happen EVERY SINGLE TIME. Sorry for the brick

  • It's so unfair

    Its so fair how there is a difference in society based on the amount of money you have in the bank. I think its ridiculous how people who have a higher status can have different life chances and opportunities compared to the working class or even middle class. I think this needs to change and we should all just more on

  • The system is not fair

    Some say that we have been socialised to have a system in our lives because then we know who and where we belong to. However, there needs to be a change. The society has to evolve and star thinking differently. The life chances the upper class gets are so different to the ones the lower working or under class have. Wealth, power, money etc is not distributed equally . Why is it that we have pop aristocracy that are so rich and don't know how to spend their money and have a majority suffering from malnutrition, and dieying everyday ? Because their lacking the basic things we all have yet don't appreciate.
