there is a look in his face that I recognize in my generation
“i’m full of shit right now and you guys really are a bunch of suckers” look. i’m not good at reading most faces but I can read the faces of my generation.
he can afford to be anything he wants without any real consequence because he can buy his way out of any problem
he has a freedom that only money can buy
I don’t envy that freedom – i’m just disappointed that regular people can’t see what brings him freedom
they attribute demigod properties to him. they believe that he has some kind of super smart. they believe wealthy people work harder.
wealthy people do not work harder
they’re wealthy because they learned how to get OUT of working hard
1) have sufficient funds so the basic needs are always cared for
2) take credit (see Thomas Edison for model)
3) have a team of lawyers
any of us would be charming and happy and likable without a care in the world
we could pursue our dreams
there’s no consequence that can’t be paid off
it is what it is
but it’s the look on his face that I recognize that doesn’t come from money : it comes from “I am lying to you right now and you can’t see it”.
