Bringing back bowing and scraping, curtsying and forelock tugging

I think commoners should start curtsying to each other and bring curtsying and bowing back into fashion so that we re-enter a politer, more deferential and hierarchical society.  Equality is of course a polite fiction.

In fact, I rather like the idea of peasants tugging their forelocks, men lifting their hats and younger and poorer women curtsying to me. Why can't we have that sort of thing again? If the white working classes were more deferential to their elders and betters they would be more likely to be employed instead of having all their jobs taken by foreigners.

After The Revolution, Comrades!
