No! A class driven society is a society in which the only moral justification for your existence is self-sacrificial service to others. And much more so with respect to others in the classes above your own.
Egalitarianism posits falsely that this is the alternative that one is left with if one is opposed to equality. To the egalitarian, the only choices available to mankind are to live in a society of law and justice whereby the lower classes or those of less fortune (luck) must be forced to sacrifice to those of higher class or more fortune, or to live in a society of law and justice whereby the higher classes or those of more fortune (luck) must be forced to sacrifice to those of lower class or less fortune. This clearly sets up a false dichotomy. One that in the end offers only sacrifice as mans reason for existence. The two choices offered to man by this clearly inhumane line of thinking are that he must choose only between sacrificing in the name of altruism, or sacrificing due to ones class driven status.
