And, yes, I hate privilege,a nd the children of the rich have privilege. We are supposed to live in a democracy, and achievement is what is supposed to be rewarded for our system to work. But the reality is, we live in an aristocracy, and what is rewarded, more often than not, is inheritance and connections, not achievement. As Luv says, this has long been true, but the powers in this country are doing their best to make privilege more and more entrenched, and limit "equal opportunity."
