    There is no such thing as "excessive wealth" that's like saying someone who lives to 120 has 'excessive life' because they eat well, exercise and get good heath care. Its roots are all based on jealously and envy, and if you are jealous and envious of others you'll never be happy.

    the word "excessive" is relative. i wonder how some 3rd worlders might feel about how much of our time we spend online, rather than working in the fields...

    Greed has no limit, so I don't think there can be any limit for Wealth. It has been years, since I stopped envying such rich brats and started working towards becoming a "rich brat" and have gross amount of wealth .. :)

    Cheers :)

    I don't believe that type of wealth is here to stay, I would never no matter how rich I am, spend millions of dollars on such wealth. I just want something normal to live a regular happy life with family. I learn I don't need friends.

    One cannot judge the content of another's character by looking at pictures of them with their stuff. If one believes otherwise, one not only dooms the rich to being falsely and inaccurately judged, but the poor as well.

    If those people have those things and are in debt, it's vulgar and profane.

    If that's all equity, well gosh, some of them have taste

    I have nothing against people who are into materialism. It's not for me, but I'm more of a minimalist by nature anyway. That's just my personality. However, I believe those who enjoy 'stuff' should be allowed to enjoy 'stuff' after all they keep our economy moving, create jobs and increase the wealth of all of us one shape or form.

    I do believe the way we consume things will have to change at some point. We're incredibly wasteful, and we harm our own environment while we're at it. This isn't sustainable long term, and I think the extreme weather conditions we are just starting to see are the consequences of over polluting our environment.

    I think we need a more sustainable capitalism. How that would be achieved is open to much debate. But if I was honest I think a lot of our issues come from an over populated planet. Population control is a very politically sensitive issue, and no one really wants to go there. China has made attempts at it, but China with all its corruption kinda does what it wants anyway.

    I think there is also an accountability issue, humans inherently selfish creatures - so long as they can't can create a fulfilling life for themselves that's all that matters. What happens after they're dead isn't their problem. It also goes for demographics, if you're destroying China's environment enriching yourself then as long as you're not located near China you're not going to care much.

    Depends. If that's their way of life then so be it. I won't hold it against someone they were born rich and into rich social circles.

    But if they gloat and boast then it's disgusting. If I have a chance to steal of such people I will take it.

    I enjoy #RKOI simply for the private plane pics. It is my goal to exclusively fly private someday, so it is all motivation for me.

    Look mate, I do not have much respect for kids with rich parents who brag with stuff like hot cars and stuff like that running on money they didn't made. I respect their parents, not them. Had quite a few colleagues like that and all had pussy so I am quite sure they don't give a fuck about my lack of respect towards them :)

    I have even less respect for people who are poor. And the excuses for being poor... only 1% of them are real. The rest is some story the poor dude invented in his mind to pat himself on the back for being poor - government, conspiracy theories, aliens, bad friends, bad parents, bad wife, bad influences, no money to start with, etc. all are simple excuses that make him loose even more respect from me.

    Now, to get to the point, I see absolutely no problem with those pictures or the people in them. The girls I'd totally "hit" if you know what I mean. My question is do you know any of them personally? You don't! Maybe they are assholes, idiots, whatever but maybe they are great people. My point is you don't know. So who exactly are you to judge them? And for what... for being wealthy?! None of those pics show them in a bragging stance. I've seen pictures where people are bragging with crap and you know they're bragging from the face and posture they have. The people from the link you gave look like they're enjoying life and that that is their LIFESTYLE. Is kinda like a guy in Somalia would come to you and say you're gross for having a picture of yourself in a restaurant with a steak in front of you.

    My bottom line is I do not judge people for how much money they have but for how they are like people. You can be poor and an asshole just like you can be rich and an asshole and has little to do with money.
