Standpoint vs Vantage

Standpoint is not automatic – it is earned.  It is the intellectual perspective of positionality within a social hierarchy (_________).  Vantage, however, is inherited or adopted.  It represents the narrow scope of social perception (not perspective) that an individual is willing or able to take in.  And note that one can take in a whole vista from a mountaintop to the horizon, but see (and care) very little of the trees and rivers and people below.
