In a meme currently popular among trust fund babies, the wealthy are trying to shame the 99% of Americans who work for a living with this plutocratic quote:
“Don’t envy what people have, emulate what they did to have it.” – Tim Fargo
So, instead of envying Donald Trump’s wealth we’re supposed to emulate having fathers who give us a million dollars to start a business with, business contacts with the richest and most powerful people in New York City, and then over $200 million for an inheritance. How exactly is that supposed to work? Can we get a father like that by pulling ourselves up by the bootstraps?
