I surprised myself by how many groups, mainly identified by their profession, could be "taken out" in order to end up with a more streamlined society.
The problem with "streamlining societies" is that the societies that do it either become decadent or turn on themselves almost immediately.

Pick any historical instance of what is now termed "ethnic cleansing" for evidence.

Trying to make a society "better" by removing or suppressing elements of it has almost invariably led to the fall of the society itself, but people still believe that they should (and have the inalienable right to) try.

Democracy as it stands might suck, but it's still proven itself to be far better than any of the alternatives.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
