Does it take an oppressive, or a repressive society to host a noir world? Wouldn't a coercive society make a far better host? I'd say that at least (and often at most) the illusion of social mobility is necessary for characters to dream of a better life, which often leads to the bad things individuals (and groups) do to have "a better life."
