I'm rather of the opinion that the children of the elite *should* be expected to produce much. From those to whom much is given, much is
And if the children of the elite spend their time just going to clubs and drinking and doing drugs and having sex with strangers or whatever, maybe
people here don't have a problem with that because it's harmless to them personally and take a certain schadefreude in their jealousy and smug sense
of moral superiority, but how well does that bode for the future of humanity when that is what they do?
As soon as one reaches a certain level in society, one just ends up being a meth addict or hooking up with strippers / photographers? Is that a good
thing? It's like people don't want anyone else to do better than themselves or something and ENJOY seeing people of such tremendous promise so
callously throw their lives away. It's nothing but jealousy and hatred and there is nothing to be said for that.
Ideally, I think the sons and daughters of the elite should be taking strides forward to show the rest of us the way. Unfortunately they're not and
that's why I have, from time to time, taken it upon myself to do just that, even though I can barely afford to do so.
Look, most people are too busy earning a living and making sure they can send their kids off to college or whatever to bother but for some people who
don't have those constraints, what about them? What would people have of them? It's almost as if people WANT the elite to fall and fail. Would
people prefer global society to be completely rudderless? Would people simply yield control of world events to the United Nations, which goes out of
its way to put up a front of being a charitable and noble organization but hasn't done a single concrete thing to advance anything except the wheels
of its own PR machine? I believe the UN is the 10-headed beast of Revelation.
But I happen to agree with David Rockefeller about the necessity of a transnational intellectual and banking elite. Nations tend to serve their own
interest and that creates problems as history shows. They are no more noble or selfless than corporations and generally less so. Intellect without
finance is impotent and finance without intellect is soulless.
