Being born into generational wealth?

You forgot to add "self-made" but came from a family of wealth and taste.

And a willingness to exploit your fellow man.

Which are:

Step 1: Be born rich

Step 2: Never actually work hard

Eat The Rich

Eat The Rich

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.

Matthew 19:24

"Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you." James 5:1

Why do the wealthy elite keep harping on laziness even though the American worker is more productive and works longer hours now than at any point in our nation's history?

The same reason a narcissistic parent withholds their approval: To make you their emotional slaves.

Never. Forget. This.

Your boss telling you that 120% of your goals 'aren't enough to warrant a raise' is just another manipulation they use.

Deep down, she's gotta know the only reason she's famous is because the internet saw her sister fucking some dude.

Classic Elon

Classic Elon

Elon Musk is a trash person.

"ur a pedophile"

Musk, probably

My favorite thing about Musk is that he demonstrates regularly with his twitter beef that it doesn't matter how much money you have, validation from other people is more desirable. A very public example of how the bourgeoisie experiences alienation through the capitalist mode of production.

Tuxedo Musk strikes again!

Or Elon Mask, I can't decide.

Kylie Jenner Is 'Self-Made' And Other Myths We Tell About The Extremely Wealthy

Kylie Jenner Is 'Self-Made' And Other Myths We Tell About The Extremely Wealthy

Excessive wealth should be its own genre of music, movies and television. Drake, Lil Wayne, Kardashians, Real Housewives. People barely making ends meet PAYING the extremely wealthy to show off how wealthy they are.

Stop paying these people.

Celebrity itself is a poison to the human spirit. Everyone has heroes but they are just human beings. Celebrity creates a false essence of superiority on nothing else but desire to be that person when, in fact, the only person you have a chance to be is yourself.

PSA: THESE OFFENSIVE AND CONTROVERSIAL STUNTS ARE CALCULATED.

They're just ploys to attract attention and heated discussion.

The only mind you should pay this drivel is simply "oh, the rich are still a cancer, yup, that's what I thought, ok cool." and move on.

My nephew is obsessed with [The Sharer Brothers](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDfk8ogO6QGeJAYCY0QDzKw) on YouTube. It is the most obnoxious rich kids, showing off their money and toys. It is money worshiping propaganda at it's finest, targeted at little kids. Drive my brother-in-law and sister nuts that the kid loves it. The Sharer's are just a bunch of fucking douchbags.

Elon helps out again!

Elon helps out again!

What a piece of shit this guy has turned into.

And his shills on reddit are hilarious. Fuck Elon Musk.

Some kids were stuck in an underwater cave. Elon saw a chance for a publicity stunt and started building a one-man submarine to get them out, which every person in a position to hold an opinion on the matter saw would never work. They sent divers in who successfully got the boys out. Elon showed his true colours by shouting at people on twitter that his submarine definitely would have worked and called one of the divers a paedophile because he's a British man who lives in Thailand.

He was always like that. Discussion of his horribleness was quashed by his fans though.

Recently there was a cave collapse in Thailand that trapped a number of young boys. There was a large and complicated rescue mission that was largely successful. While this was ongoing Elon Musk had a twitter conversation with someone who was working at the rescue site. Elon offered to help build a submersible vehicle that might have helped to rescue the kids.

Musk has received some heat about how the submarine wouldn't have actually been useful, and it was mainly just a publicity stunt by him to stroke his ego. One of the divers who was part of the rescue team tweeted that Musk could "Stick his sub where the sun don't shine." Ever classy Musk levelheadedly accused the guy of being a paedophile because he's white and in Thailand.

The death toll is worse than Katrina or 9/11. Many people are still displaced. But god forbid our military budget is a dime under $700 Billion.

I mean everybody knows building 10 aircraft carriers more takes priority over human lifes have to make america great again after all /s

That's America, make war not peace

Hmmmm...

Living the American dream

PR...

PR...

If there has been one thing I learned in my marketing class it's that if a company has to boast about how helpful they are, they aren't really being that helpful.

"Look at us, taking a very small percentage of our profits to help people. You should be pat us on the back."

Just help people. It's not that hard.

No business helps people for the sake of helping people. They help people because tax write off.

If a tree falls in the forest and there are no marketing execs to capture it, it didn't happen.

Tax write off and image. Even in the care industry the idea that it is a novel thing to do is used to exploit the workers as the 'satifaction' is brought up as a 'second paycheck' and job fairs and in salary negotiations.

Elon Musk fans...

Elon Musk fans...

It's like Nietzsche said , with the death of god we can be the Übermenschen and create new value and live through this nihilistic life or we can just turn to false idols and worship them as if they were our newly found god...

Whoa whoa. He "earned" billions? C'mon now.

I never understood the push to go to mars either. Like, the amount of money you would spend making mars livable could just be spent here on earth fixing problems with the environment here.

After seeing that post about people donating money to Kylie Jenner, who could blame him.

Unite and Fight!

Unite and Fight!

Reminds me of people who get cheated on and get mad at the person who messed with their SO and not the person who was actually in the relationship.

Pretty much my old bestfriend. His girlfriend always liked me and yet it was MY FAULT that she was into me when I never tried it on with her

Stop being so damn cute and pleasant to be around!

As a working immigrant myself, seeing this makes me happy
