I’m not talking about education. There is always a divide, but sometimes that line becomes as thick as it is wide.
There is an obvious upper class that has a strong influence on what we consume. They set the style and we follow.
The classes I originally meant were these:
Someone who gains attention from the upper class via Media, Art, or any form of Entertainment.
Someone who gains attention from the upper class via military service.
These seem to be the only portals to become part of the upper class.
But the thing about Princes is they only rule because the Peasants allow it by not being creative enough to subvert their overlords, which would seemingly and saldy seem to imply the system is such for a reason.
