In every society from the hunting and gathering society to the post industrial society, what has been the most common basis for social stratification?
Weegy: Major Stratification Systems 1) Caste System – a closed system based on ascribed status (birth) - Nothing can be done to affect mobility and there are no chances of changing one’s social position - Such societies also recognize “ritual pollution” [ (i.e., certain types of interaction between people of different castes are prohibited because they tend to contaminate members of the higher caste) - Such a system promotes endogamy (i.e., marriage within one’s own caste) • There are five castes in India: 1) priests, scholars, and their descendents 2) nobility, warriors, and their descendents 3) merchants and skilled artisans (or their descendents) 4) unskilled laborers 5) outcasts or “untouchables” 2) Slavery System – the ownership of some people by others - Contrary to popular assumption, slavery was not usually based on racism, but on one of three other factors: a) Debt b) Crime c) War and conquest - The conditions of slavery have varied widely around the world: a) In some cases, slavery was temporary b) Slavery was not necessarily inheritable c) Slaves were not necessarily powerless and poor 3) Estate System – the stratification system of medieval Europe, consisting of three groups or estates: a) Nobility – the wealthy and powerful families that ruled the country and owned the land; the nobility did no farming or any other work—having an occupation was considered beneath their dignity b) Clergy – the Roman Catholic Church was a political power at this time, owning vast tracts of land and collecting taxes from commoners; the church sold offices, and the wealthy could buy positions c) Serfs – the commoners, including farmers, carpenters, harnessmakers, and servants. ] (More)
