I don't think that we have to look very far in our own lives to see how easy it is for someone who is well off to have disdain for someone who is not. I'm sure that a thousand times I've thought to myself, why can't XYZ poor person, poor country, just pick themselves up by their bootstraps and get to work. It is quite easy when you have 4000/yr + another fortune to say that you could happily live on 500/year.
That is part of the joy of JA. You can so easily see how nothing really changes. So many of her characters are right here in our own lives. Even in our own heads. LOL.
