You're not trying to understand to point?
Ideally everyone should do the work they want to do (or not work if they don't want to). I was saying it would be great if it wasn't a requirement to work in order to live (in a body). The stevepav community tends to desire to work for a better future for humanity.
The scientists and engineers comment is snarky and thoughtless.
and yes... most of the economic elite WERE born into it. Most never received an inheritance, because there parents arn't dead yet. The insanely rich move their assets around within the family. Kids get investment firms from their parents. They increase the wealth of the family.
