One of our readers, C.V., recently sent me links to two articles that I think are quite timely. One, written by documentary filmmaker and entertainment dynasty scion, Abigail Disney, is below.
It’s enlightening, thought-provoking…and succinct. Read it HERE.
Ms. Disney writes with refreshing candor and rare self-awareness. She presents a chessboard of competing agendas–some psychological, some political, all very human–and recounts without undue emotion what she’s experienced and how it has affected not just her, but the wealthy as a class.
Note: being born into wealth is one thing. Having a brand name for a last name is quite another. There’s just no place to hide, and I can’t imagine what that was like.
Her observations are objective but not clinical. Her informed and not-so-subtle push for tax reform–as well as a little self-reflection from other members of the billionaire class–is welcome.
So, enjoy. I’m looking forward to your comments.
And thank you, C.V. I hope you’re safe and well.
