Why, no, certainly not. A scholar or a writer or an artist might be able to kiss a queen on the cheeks while having very low income.



The queen is just a humorous tradition in any modern civilized country. Your argument is quite stupid.

To me using income as social scale is insane. It would give a very high position to cartel bosses, and these guys should be on the bottom.

If you'd need a social scale for some l practical reason, I suppose the only workable one is education level. it ids not fair to everyone but I think it is the last horrible.
