yes. in many cases.
Semi-literates devising a new taxation system and legal code or operating on hospital patients? Come off it! What do you imagine the PRL was, a third world country.
both my parents have higher education (they have graduated in 70s).
In which case they are presumably intelligent. Remember that throughout the PRL certain documents required people to state the social background of their parents - I had to, the first time I had a visa. Intelligentsia was one of the categories.
In fairness jonni, You are English (I should stop there but I won't;)
And in England you are brought up seeing the world in a class system manner.
Nonsense. In the coal mining village I grew up in, attitudes to class differed somewhat to those in the Home Counties. There wasn't much variety there and nobody who would describe themselves as anything other thn working class - if pushed to do so.
And as these jobs exist in every country, it is easy to suggest such a system
Sociologists do just that.
as you have done invented your own (at least you get points for creativity)
More nonsense, and trolling too. The categories: intelligentsia, worker, peasant were used throughout the PRL and hve their origins long, long before. Why do you think it's somehow an invention?
but snobbery and job description does not mean there is a class system.
It means just that. Do cardio-thoracic surgeons or high court judges invite many dustmen to dinner?
