After reading ‘The state visit thread’ it made me think.
I am curious about what others think of this subject.
As I often get confused on why folk react severely over those who have wealth, status and who seem to be held in high regard. This also seems to be the case that shapes political views and deepens my curious nature on how others think about stuff.
Can anyone answer when a person goes from being rich and privileged, as most rich folk end up being… be it getting a better service, buying what they fancy, cars, houses, boats, etc with their thousands/millions, to having at times celebrity status or even being admired for being just one of the super rich.
Folk have to start somewhere…so does it matter where you get your cash from. ?
Do we dislike those with money that don’t work to earn it ?
Or do we dislike those with money who inherit it - although, if someone leaves their riches, no matter how large or small they are to their children, are those children condemned for getting money, privilege, without having worked for it…?
Or is it okay to have status, privilege and all the benefits that goes along with this, if for say you start with nothing and work up to having millions, therefore be seen as one of the ‘working hard for all you have’ crowd and so deemed to be seen as someone - most admirable.
Or will others always regard those loaded with cash , status and privilege as too much and not having any thought to those who don’t have much cash, privilege or status…?
Or is it, that folk just hate feeling skint and seeing others with lots of cash… no matter where it comes from.
For instance if you are born into a family that are seen as being wealthy, have status, etc…
I only hope I’ve managed to post this correctly - never added a subject for discussion before. Not even sure whereabouts to post it, so hopefully it’s okay. Thanks folks…
