We're all both nature and nurture. A person's nurture can only stretch a person's nature so far before they go insane and completely lose it. There
are people built from many different clays.
The problem is, those that don't crave money and power don't seek it, therefore they rarely have it. A lot of people just want to live a simple life
with friends, family, pets, and loved ones. They neither crave nor seek fame, they aren't incredibly ambitious, life for them is about living. Often
they're called lazy, or many other horrible things, because that same lack of ambition and desire for simply living makes many such types break under
the yoke of the 48+ hour work week because it saps them of the one thing that for them makes life worth living, time with friends and family, time to
explore the wonders of the world and live. If you give them a bunch of money, they'll spend it helping friends, family and others, save just enough
to never work again, and live simply. They won't off-shore it, they won't ruin anyone else with it, they might do some crazy stuff with it cause why
the hell not. They might see the world, travel, many will go to college, not for degrees, but to take classes they WANT not need to take, to learn
things that interest them. They might even contribute to research and advancement as they pursue intellectual interests with no need to grind for
But what they won't do is, go start some company, they won't become some ruthless CEO, they'll just be the same person they were before with a lot of
money, possibly finally able to contribute to society in ways they could never do while working a 9 to 5+ everyday.
