The Romans had the Equestrian Order for the nobility, and it's never been any different. Now once you're at the 40th degree, that's when you're into the lower gods. It's modeled after Elohim and the angels, and you've got the orders of the angels all the way up to the illumined gods. Like I said, 'Life begins at 40'. It's all esoteric.
What makes you think that the middle class originated during the Industrial era? They have existed for a lot longer than that, i.e the Middle Ages.
