As far as I can tell, being born stupid and rich is the winning combination.

What good are things like integrity and morality and empathy and honesty and intellect and so on if it is impossible for your brain to even conceptualize them???? It is not that you saw these things and turned away from them—you never even knew what you were missing in the first place!

Consider that, on the other hand, an awareness or sensitivity to these things is a sort of dog whistle which only a comparatively small percentage of the population are attuned to. So in addition to your own shame and grief and embarrassment, you end up shouldering everyone else’s too.

And just because the deal wasn’t sweet enough already: you’re going to be dirt poor till the day you die, too!

Whoa! That blows.
