Could it be true wealth ownership and societal position don't really exist?

An examination of bones couldn't distinguish a cop from criminal or a rich person from a poor one. It's as if humanity is enslaved by social constructs. Hmmmm.....

    Humanity enslaved by society?  You could believe that and see yourself as a slave to society with an external locus of control.  Of course, that only exists in your mind.  Yes, you do have to conform to society's rules where your limits extend to the limits of other humans in society, but you have the freedom to make the most of your individual knowledge, skills, and abilities and that is what either creates wealth or limits your development.  Regardless, the choice is yours.  Your life is what you make of it, not what society makes of it.

    A little common sense, and TV level forensics, can tell a lot about a person from his bones. Rich will show better diet and medical care than the poor. The type of wounds and how they heal could indicate the type of work a person did. Or the kind of injuries he received. The same for joint wear and damage.

    Actually bones could demonstrate long term malnutrition which would be evidence of poverty. Also how the bones were buried could indicate wealth or social standing. 

    But the condition of bones is irrelevant because although after death we all turn to bones,  your socioeconomic position is real.
