    I'm not viewing class as strictly defined by money/income. As Deary said, different classes have different attitudes, values, lifestyles. But money is important in a way too, because I wouldn't want to take the role of supporting a man with my income while he earns little or nothing. I would support him in dire times, but not as a rule. Because that's a little bit too feminist for my tastes.

    If someone has correct character values, like a sense of duty and a sense of honor, etc. and still can't be successful monetarily than society is foul.

    You might have correct character values, sense of duty or honor, but if you don't have a proper schooling(university) at your back and a proper certificate in your hand, you won't be able to succeed monetarily - And all these again require money, and not all families can afford themselves to let their children to go to a university, no matter how correct their character values are.

    As I said, society is foul then.

    Looked at that way, then a 'middle class' mentality is what I would look for. I can't stand snotty people, but I can't stand lazy people either.

    Perhaps social class/standing matters for some, and I do think that the social class people are born into leaves on imprint on their sensibilities. I also think there is often a connection between social class and tastes. Sharing common interests and a similar worldview are more important, in my opinion, and can transcend class.
