Mundus et Infans

“They were there for a discreet, invitation-only summit hosted by the Obama administration to find common ground between the public sector and the so-called next-generation philanthropists, many of whom stand to inherit billions in private wealth.” –The New York Times

If Piketty is to be believed

the rate of wealth accumulation, labeled

r, will in fact inevitably exceed

the rate of growth; thus are the rich enabled

to pass their filthy riches on to their

unencumbered offspring, whose vocation

is to be an unearned billionaire,

buying and spending unearned veneration.

Charity is fine. Philanthropy

is surplus value’s subtle marketing,

minor heat loss in the form of piety.

Yo, muse; shit’s fucked and bullshit; this I sing:

what is the point of having an election

when The New York Times has got a Styles section?
