Por derecho divino.

Puede que en un futuro no muy lejano, me haga un trip por Belgica. Recopilando informacion en internet, me encuentro con que Brujas, ya en la epoca medieval sufria problemas distributivos. Por si creiamos que la lucha campo-industria era cosa nuestra, mira otro ejemplo:
But we should not forget that hard times also occurred regularly in Bruges. The differences in income between the ordinary people (the tradesmen) and the merchant entrepreneurs (the patricians) were huge, regardless of those in the middle. Violent revolts, like those of 1280 and 1436-1438 were roughly suppressed. In the 1302 uprising the ordinary people took the side of the Flemish count against the king of France and the propertied classes. This struggle, in which Bruges played a prominent role, resulted in a victory for the tradespeople and the Flemish count in the Battle of the Golden Spurs on 11 July 1302. This historic date is now the feast day of the Flemish community in Belgium.
