Even today we tend to look more favorably on taller people. There is this perception that tall=more competent or more attractive. If you're a man, at any rate. They're more likely to be hired, to get raises and get promotions. We see this in politics as well. Since TV was invented, we tend to vote for the taller candidate.

Like many tribal societies, leadership positions were not hereditary.

1984 was a warning, not a how-to guide.
