Just a fun little question. We live in a society that worships yet at the same time detests people born into a wealthy/famous family. They are scorned and people say that they're born with a 'silver spoon in their mouth', but if Robert Monroe is to be believed, apparently they earned that right! I think it was during one of his interviews where he said that people trying to be incarnated into wealth are put on some kind of waiting list. Is there any truth to that? And if there is, how silly does most of society look for hating them when folks born into wealth probably earned that position in the first place?
Just something to think about.
I don't think they earned anything.
Generally.. the people I know who are born into wealth, are idiots. Yeah I know, it's a nasty and not appropriate thing to say, and I know there are exceptions to this,and I DON'T hate them or anybody, but all of them I know, are spoiled, egoistical, shallow, arrogant, in much greater quantity than someone who isnt born in wealth. I would even dare to say, that being 'born into wealth' for majority of people is even bad for them.
The people who 'earned' some big money are a different thing,but not all of them again..
But I don't see any 'lower entropy' attributes in those people.
And I suppose, when you say "earned", it can only be earned by lower entropy iuocs.
Of course, this all is from my point of view, looking at wealthy people and their kids here, on balcan.
I don't know how american, english, or sweedish, wealthy people behave, but I suppose we aren't that different.
