The royalty connection

I've asked myself why it is that so many of the super rich are socialist and liberal, now I see the connection. It's about station, about "knowing your place." They're royalty.

Prince Charles draws back the curtain so that we can see the outlook of the super rich.

"What is wrong with everyone nowadays?

"Why do they all seem to think they are qualified to do things far beyond their technical capabilities?

"This is to do with the learning culture in schools as a consequence of a child-centred system which admits no failure.

"People think they can all be pop stars, high court judges, brilliant TV personalities or infinitely more competent heads of state without ever putting in the necessary work or having natural ability.

"This is the result of social utopianism which believes humanity can be genetically and socially engineered to contradict the lessons of history."

...latest pronouncement on British society - that its schools are imbued with a culture of "social utopianism" responsible for people getting ideas above their station - was laid bare at an employment tribunal yesterday. uk.news

Well this actually mirrors the views of those with billions that the government is best equipped to take care of the uneducated, unwashed masses. Those who otherwise would no doubt be unable to feed themselves. They become the providers, the planners of a more just society. They are the wise ones who are best able to decide the important decisions about who gets what in our society.

The super rich socialists begin to see themselves as Prince Charles no doubt does. As royalty.
