Rich Kids Of Instagram – More Of This Please!on July 19, 2012 at 9:57 pm
So rich kids are still kids and kids loves them the social media. This means they will often post pictures of themselves doing whatever it is that rich kids do and someone has grouped them all together in convenient browsing form. I think this is the greatest idea of all time. Why, you ask? Because almost every single one of these rich kids will grow up to be rich adults with the world at their feet. They will also, most of them, have been force fed a steady diet of class warfare in which they “earned” their wealth and the rest of us 99 percenters are trying to steal it. Nothing, and I mean nothing, will put the lie to their proclamations that they’re self-made zillionaires than picture after picture of them growing up in obscene wealth. “I didn’t ask for any handouts!” sounds really really stupid when you had a pool larger than my last apartment.
We don’t begrudge the rich their money but let’s not pretend that they’re successful because they worked harder. They were handed the keys to the kingdom in a system designed to ensure their success no matter how many times they screw up. They were given everything, I don’t think it’s asking too much for them to pay back into the country that ensured they could live the life they’re recording for all the world to see.
