Unequal Animals

"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others"
-Animal Farm, by George Orwell

Why this inequality? Why are there different classes of human beings? If you were to justify the wealth of the high caste people, their position in the society because of their hard work, then how do you explain the labourers who work so much harder than almost anybody else?

Do they deserve to live a better life, just because they are more intelligent, more knowledgeable, more cunning than others at taking opportunities in life? But how do you reckon for those who have learning difficulties? Why some people can effortlessly excel at anything, yet for some other people, too bad they are not so lucky?

Why is life so unfair to those poor folks? Why? Dear God, why? It's not entirely capitalism's fault, is it? Will this ever be solved by communism/socialism? Will it?
