Social Position is most often a factor of birth and/or marriage. It generally is accompanied by wealth but can exist for at least one generation without it. It can easily be observed in Chimpanzees and other primates as part of their social structure. It has changed little over the millions of years of our ancestor’s existence and is one of the failings of evolution.
