Ancient Athens[ edit ] Athenian democracy developed in the 6th century BC out of what was then called isonomia equality of law and political rights. Sortition was then the principal way of achieving this fairness. It was utilized to pick most  of the magistrates for their governing committees, and for their juries typically of men. Aristotle relates equality and democracy:
On top of that, there seems to be many issues with people who inherit wealth. So, if I work my way up and earn my extreme wealth, things will be rosy will they?
OK, you say, they are the sort of people who would have messed things up anyway and the money just helped them get there faster. It seems like a very stressful job keeping all of that inherited property and other wealth in check!
Even just the size of the estate means it is a general ballache to keep on top of everything, and they have to employ hundreds of staff just to keep on top of things.
Fair enough you might not have to run a safari park with your inheritance but there would no doubt be some sort of expected upkeep of the family estate along with all the complexities and stresses involved. The flip side of this is they become clinically depressed: Maybe some of them actually feel undeserving of their untapped wealth?
In sum… Be careful what you wish for your kids, folks. Losing all your normal friends It is very likely that if you become extremely wealthy and your friends do not then you will gradually lose touch with them.
They will either resent you, try to extract money from you, or you will try to give them money and things will get awkward. Take this comment from SexHealthMoneyDeath: Either that, or they were so scared of losing their four hundred million they were making themselves ill.
Not only did the ladies husband resent her and they ended up divorcing, but friends: This is probably my biggest fear of becoming wealthy overnight or even over the years whilst chasing FI if the information leaked out. I hope not but you never know who your real friends are until it happens, and even then you might be wrong.
Which brings us onto… Fighting off the leaches There will be plenty of people being nice to you with your new found moolah, wanting a slice of the action. How can you be sure which ones are being genuine? The worst thing is you could end up cutting off people who are genuine friends, you could get it all wrong.
This is sending me under just thinking about it! Burn that lottery ticket now! The reason behind this is the self-inflated opinion of themselves combined with the fact that they can buy their way out of any trouble now they are rich.
While this sounds fun for a while it is certainly not going to provide long term life happiness. As the article says, putting yourself deliberately into a tight spot and giving yourself some stress will force you to fire on all cylinders.
Likewise washing my hands in the toilets without assistance. Alternative you will find the staff or other customers looking down their beak at you, probably thinking that you are not as wealthy as them and therefore do not deserve to be there.
