Ironically, it encourages good manners among the upper classes, because they are taught to distance themselves from the lower classes through particular behaviours proper to feudal landowners.

People somewhat lower down also adopt these manners, hoping to be accepted higher up.

A Different Perspective

Slavery wreaks havoc with "manners" because it divides humanity and allows people of means to treat other people as less than human. Their children grow up under that artificial construct thinking it is permissible to hurt other people, think of them as inferior, treat them as possessions, take away their rights and treat them as animals. Slavery promotes savage and ill-mannered behavior by people who should know better and the very concept of "manners" loses all meaning by being swamped in hypocrisy.
