Nelson Aldrich, a child of privilige, fallen upon hard times writes of social class for Financial Planning. One of my favorite writers about wealth in America, he calls for a return to Boarding Schools to teach the child of new money the responsibilities that come with wealth and to instill a social conscience. Instead, we can probably expect home schooling, drilling kids in the Bible, Hayek, and the tenets of Social Darwinism. As the Happy Tutor I do what I can, bringing the tough love and spankings of a good English Boarding School to the likes of Missy Proctor. But how can one man chasten an entire generation of spoiled rich kids and their self-satisfied parents? Perhaps I should turn my attention to training a cadre of Student Teachers. I am afraid, though, that wealth holders today are not so keen on cold showers, rising at dawn, and the chastiment of the errant flesh. So, like the Peripetetics of old, out we must go into the Dumpsters, to accost our betters as they pass by. Pro bono spankings may yet save our country and the souls of our ruling class.
