POETIC JUSTICE OR KARMA: HOW THE ABANDONMENT OF “NOBLESSE OBLIGE” BY THE WEALTHY AND PRIVILEGED CLASS OF AMERICA WILL ENSURE THEIR OWN DEMISE
Change is coming to America, but not the kind of change that the wealthy and privileged classes necessarily want. That change is revolution – not a violent one, but a peaceful gathering of like-minded protestors who are growing weary and tired of the growing chasm between the super obscenely wealthy, and the poor, with the complete and total evaporation of the Middle Class.
While the super-wealthy across America take to bragging in graphic detail about their extraordinarily opulent lives on social media applications such as “Instagram,” tripping the light fantastic on their private jets, partying in the most exclusive nightclubs with rows of champagne bottles of the highest pedigree, openly blowing cocaine and promiscuously bedding the most beautiful models night after night, sometimes in pairs or groups, and throwing around millions (if not billions) of dollars on flashy cars, fabulous restaurants, watches, luxury purses and other accessories, the 99% of Americans watch, wait, and plot.
And they plot.
Their allies are groups like Anonymous, who pledge social justice and are the self-appointed Guardians of Social Justice in a world gone truly amok, and where the wealthy and privileged simply don’t give a damn about them.
Bernie Sanders is a frontrunner of the Democrat side, and Donald Trump is a hero of the Right. Regardless of what the major media says, Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton, who implicitly or explicitly promise to protect and safeguard the astronomical wealth and liquid cash of the super-elite in America, the Millennial generation of America promises to come out in full force and effect in this upcoming 2016 election, and they will not allow the paid-for political pundits of CNN or FoxNews to deter them in their course. They want change, and they have all resoundingly declared that Power and Wealth Redistribution, in the manner described by either Democrat Bernie Sanders, an open and avowed Socialist, or Republican Donald Trump, an open and avowed political anarchist, is what they want. Either one promises and ensures the death knell for the super-wealthy and increasingly sociopathic class of America.
Once upon a time, the wealthy and privileged classes inculcated in their young the concept of “Noblesse Oblige.” That is, “the inferred responsibility of privileged people to act with generosity and nobility toward those less privileged.”
America’s former robber barons and old moneyed families alike used to respect this concept – great self-made men like Andrew Carnegie, John D Rockefeller, Henry Ford, JP Morgan, and countless others spent their enormous wealth and invested their time into building institutions used to better their fellow citizens – hospitals, schools, universities, charities, symphony halls, and other charitable organizations – because even ruthless robber barons respected their responsibility as a wealthy segment of the American system of Capitalism, and they also recognized that Capitalism would fall, and their fortunes alongside of it, if the Masses ever rose up against them to protest if they didn’t somehow share their prosperity and give back to the national community.
But today’s billionaires have completely forgotten about the concept of Noblesse Oblige, and therefore have also abandoned the implicit rules of Capitalism – they are going to party themselves to death and burn out in a selfish self-inflicted inferno of earthly hellfire, and will most assuredly lose their fortunes if either Bernie Sanders, or Rand Paul is elected, which they most definitely will be.
The People have spoken – they want wealth redistribution because the uber-wealthy of America won’t share it anymore, and if they won’t share it or give back in some way, well then, the People will TAKE IT BACK.
