Social class structure and the clash of economic systems is a major theme in this novel. I don't think you could label Wuthering Heights as an apology to a particular system. "The novel is set at a time when capitalism and industrialization are changing not only the economy but also the traditional social structure and the relationship of the classes. The yeoman or respectable farming class (Hareton) was being destroyed by the economic alliance of the newly-wealthy capitalists (Heathcliff) and the traditional power-holding gentry (the Lintons)." This question demands more specific detail. Check out an in depth article about this in the source link below.
