    Post Is a Western Caste System Inevitable?

    Perhaps the only reason this hasn't happened is because of the relatively recent arrival of Multiculturalism onto the Western Scene.

    In every country where there is an established "Amalgamation" of peoples there has been a Caste system of varying degrees can be found. Take example India which still has a Caste System a relic ancient Aryan invasions.

    Modern examples include Brazil,Mexico,Israel,North Africa,ect.

    Is a Caste System Inevitable for the Western World as well?

    Mexico and Brazil have strong class differences, sure, but I don't think it's as impossible to get to a higher stratus as in a true caste sistem.
    I mean that (at least this is what I see over here - this example could be taken to the two countries mentioned above) through economical success, people inevitably end up in the high class - not in the first generation, perhaps, but through upbreeding, in a few generations they're in. Of course, to be successful having been born a low class individual in onw of these countries is really hard. That's a moderately effective filter, but a considerable number get through it, so it's not impossible to class scale, as it certainly is in a true caste sistem.
    As for a caste system in the Western World...well, there will always be some survivors who'll stick to their traditions and kin, to their own...however, I think they'll be the exception rather than the rule. Unless something changes in the near future, but that seems unlikely.
