Remember that saying, “Money is the root of all evil”? Ever wonder why it was said in the first place? I have. I’ve spent quite a bit of time just looking at the whole idea.
There’s another common observation people often make – Money changes people. Who can argue with that? If we look under the surface of this phenomena what we find is a fairly predominant trait in the nature of man. How can I put it into words “The joy of feeling like you’re better than someone else”.
This trait manifests itself in a lot of ways. How about the need in some children to be popular? While no one likes being an outcast, what does being popular mean to people? Who’s the most popular – The better people? Are the best people the most popular, or are the popular people seen as best?
There have been times when I’ve been the center of attention. I have to admit that the tendency to feel better than others was there in me. I think for me it was balanced out by my constant companion – feeling inadequate. So I was able to observe it and not get swept up in it. But I’ve seen it in people close to me and I see it in people every where, every day.
I say all this because I read a very good article this morning about who are often referred to as the global elite. The article covers a really long story. It’s a story that many don’t take seriously (I guess) because they don’t have knowledge of the “Better Than” phenomena.
This better than deal is not a theory. It’s well beyond that in that it’s so observable. Remember the experiment done at (some) college where they set up a prison environment? It’s pretty ugly to watch human beings and what they can easily become. The student guards turned sadistic.
What about this saying, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely”? Is that true? Sadly, there are few exceptions to the rule. Who do you know that you would give absolute power to? The entire United States Constitution is a list of restrictions. One “You can’t do that” after another. No matter what the “Founding Fathers” were – they knew something about Tyranny. They had a realistic grasp of human nature when it came to power. They put checks and limits on power at every opportunity. People have been scheming and removing those limits ever since.
I have no delusions when it comes to peoples nature and their capacity for “feelings of superiority”. I see it everyday. A really beneficial study for anyone interested in this topic might be titled – the mind of the elitist. I don’t think this has been widely looked at. I have my own ideas as to why there is no academic interest in the study but for now I’ll just give you the link to the article and let you read, what I see as, an end result of the “Better Than” syndrome.
