No. On the subject of lookism.

It reminds me a lot of the caste system that countries such as India have / have had, where people are separated into different groups based on some criteria, and treated very differently depending on the group they are born into. It's quite similar to that as well in that there is little real mobility between the castes. It's interesting in that it is pretty much biologically encoded into us.

It's hard to say for sure, though I assume it has always played a significant role in society. Of course it is biologically encoded into us as far as sexual selection goes. There are stories in the Bible of bald people being mocked, so obviously even in ancient times things like that happened.
If anything I would say that lookism has likely always been prevalent. The things that change are the social structures that can ameliorate or potentiate its effects. For example, female's exclusive hypergamy and males 'omnigamy' results in a state where the most attractive males monopolize the females, this is indeed prevented by cultural enforcement of celibacy prior to marriage and monogamy, as in such cultures people are forced to rapidly couple with their looksmatch. Removing that social construct has likely led to a sexual victory for females, in that their sexual market value has increased, leading to lookism becoming more detrimental to males in the context of the sexual marketplace, seeing as males that in previous times would have gotten a looksmatched girl are now shunned for chads. This isn't so much a fundamental change in lookism though, but rather is a change in society that potentiated the negative effects of lookism (for males) by removing an ameliorating modulator.
Also living in the information age has likely changed the manifestation of lookism significantly. As far as sexual marketplace goes, social media and things like tinder have certainly contributed to it just in terms of further supporting female's exclusive hypergamy. There is also some potential that things such as mass media advertising have brought it more to the forefront of society, but it's questionable how much this actually contributed to things, seeing as we were always evolutionarily programmed to be attracted to certain characteristics in others, but I suppose a sort of artificial submersion bias could be taking place in which the perception of average is skewed.

Lookism has always thrown me off. It's incredibly powerful, it completey structures male and female development, and yet I don't see why its so important beyond the basic evo-psych attracton aspects. Hot girls learn to be shallow and status minded because they're thrust into the SMP early and are valuable and any smart male will start grooming them from a young age. They quickly become an object to themselves and others. The problem isn't going away until alphas and betas stop symbiotically giving them everything they could want.
Male lookism throws me off though. Ealy developing males are treated as natural leaders by adults and are basically selected as a master race to rule over the smarter and nicer underclass. It's a very stupid meaningless system. It's because plebians can't handle judging humans past their looks without extreme effort.
Hell even redpiller do this shit all the time. When I'm involved in hiring them I treat the interview as more than a patent, but I guarantee that my coworkers can't handle that level of decisionmaking and neither can the hoi polloi.
