If only 1 bratty heir in 10 decides to choose intelligent philanthropy over a wasted life, you have done your work.

The rich are just as likely to find out how wonderful it is to help their fellow humans as anyone else. The reality is that if a rich kid figures it out, they can have a tremendous impact with their philanthropy.

Why shouldn't the rich be given a chance to move humanity forward a half step or so? They are more than welcome, there is more than a little bit of work they can do.

Bring 'em on!

For a constructive approach to inherited wealth, try Resource Generation. I am only being obnoxious-on-purpose about brattiness. The issue of social justice, though, and of privilege is one that is of interest to the young people at Resource Generation.
