Contrast

These images represent hierarchical—>egalitarian to me. The left image speaks to the division that occurs under a hierarchical system where there is the division among the population by using the way the gravestones are divided in a similar way to that of a stadium or theater where the closer they are the more expensive or indicative of money and power of the person that was buried.

The right image represents egalitarian by using the two people of vastly different size/age eating the exact same amount of fish which is indicative of the more equal level ground that people would find the selves in under that system. The adult’s expression speaks to the feeling that people may have under egalitarian rule where they might not agree with the way goods are divided among them.

    Yes, you are both correct. The image of the first picture is hierarchical, and the gravestones in the picture stand in the order, Reserved is the best, General Admission is the second, and Sky Boxes is the last. It’s like the tickets’ seat depend on how much cost you pay in the theater or stadium. Hierarchy doesn’t end even when people died, and continues forever, which is so sad.
    Second one is egalitarian. Like you said, egalitarian : the exact same amount of fish which is indicative of the more equal level ground that people would find the selves in under that system. Egalitarian is not fairness, so we can see the feeling people might not agree with the way goods are divided among them under the system.
