You seem to be caught up on the dynasty concerning Paris Hilton.
Studies have shown that wealth of that type seldom spans generations.
If it makes you feel better, that air head will burn through it and without handlers to stop the hemorrhaging be left with a small trust fund. After the corporation is acquired by another corporation.
I only hope she doesn't breed.
I used this particular airhead as an example to make a point - because she is currently the most visible. There are tons of them like her - not necessarily at her level of wealth but enough to not have to work a day in their lives and just rely on stock and parasite around, while using others less fortunate to get things done for them.
If you don't like the name Paris, replace it with Jennifer (Gates), Barbara or Jenna (Bush), Ivanka(Trump), the Heinz boys or other persons with "no name" but enough "productive" money in their stocks for them to not have a single worry their entire lives.
The Hiltons' wealth may not span 20 generations but it will span long enough for my intelligent yet struggling kids to witness these jokes living large while they cannot sleep at night because of tomorrow's worries.
It is a completely false belief that it is the intelligent people of this world who make tons of money and live well.
Maybe a few smart ones get to do that via shrewedness and a speculative, exploitive, agressive, "business" personality (not something that I personally admire) - when they find a little exploitable niche.
But there are millions more highly intelligent, clarvoyant people who simply do not have this type of "shark" personality and as a result, they do not get to build piles of stocks while monopolizing a market.
And THIS in itself does not make them stupid, incompetent and least of all, "deserving of their fate".
Since when are the "super succesful entrepreneur" and his progenies the only humans deserving of everything (respect included)?
I thought an employee was also doing quite a bit of favor to this stinking society, wasn't he?
Imagine one without employees, only with entrepreneurs !!!
See what kind of "magic entreprise" the entreprenuer would work on then!!! Will he get everything done himself?
Last time I checked the situation of an entrepreneur doing everything HIMSELF, he wasn't doing that great after all and he was in the freakin' Stone Age!!!!
At best, most "cute babies" made today will get to toil at a job "created" through the stocks owned by these nasty creatures and at worst, they will get to be pitted against all those other desperate people competing for the few jobs available. Or the few "entrepreneurial" opportunities available.
And don't tell me about "the incredible discovery that my kid MAY make tomorrow and how he's gonna get rich on it". I just cannot count on such propagandistic exagerations when I plan the life of a future human being, and deal with the reality that we have at hand.
If the world (to be read these useless wealthy creatures) do not think they owe me a living, I do not think I owe them cheap or free labor either.
A child of mine will only come into this world when there will be a guarantee they they will not need to borrow from the rich for their survival (ever heard of the word "mortgage") and will NOT have a desperate need for "a job-ANY job!!!" - but they will REALLY get to choose what kind of occupation they want to busy themselves with in this life.
After all, it's a dog-eat-dog world isn't it?
Let's stop making eatible little puppies for the eternally hungry big dogs!
