92. A lot of the rhetoric against the rich is rooted in envy.

 

That's not to say that there's truth in needing less concentration of wealth, but no doubt a lot of the sentiment has roots in the failure of one to achieve success in life or be born into the right family. And that's ok because not everybody can make it or be fortunate through birth circumstances.

The particular nerve this video hits upon is the unconscious understanding that all of these women are set for life. If they don't already come from wealthy families, every one of them will be able to marry well because ultra successful men go for these types of women almost exclusively.

Of course I'm sure many plan on going after a career of their own as they should, but I'm sure it's nice knowing that failure is essentially impossible so long as they retain their beauty and femininity.
