In Marx's words, ideology is as "the ruling ideas of the ruling class." Those with wealth control the means of making wealth. Thus in Jane Austen's novel, Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy owns Pamberly House and its estate. People who live in Pamberly work for him. Their productions belongs to Mr. Darcy and they receive wages and annual income distributed from him. Those workers in Pamberly do not complain because they do not know how and why. More, it is Mr. Darcy and Lady Catherine who think the Bennets' social status do not suitable for the life of aristocracy. And again we find that none character, except Elizabeth, denies it.
