You misunderstand. I wasn't suggesting that wealth lead to enlightenment. I was saying that intellectuals who have wealth are able to keep the moronic masses at bay, or at least at a sufficient distance that they have no impact. Meanwhile, intellectuals without means are more likely to be drowned out by the rabble.
But, I absolutely agree with you. I should spend a lot more time with rich people! Could you perhaps make an introduction for me?
Ah, now I see what you're saying. Sorry, I can't offer any introductions. I generally can't stand those swells.
