I don't really care how people come by their money or how they live their lives. I have enjoyed a fair bit of privilege myself. I just wish we could be spared this "anyone can do it with hard work and persistence" bullshit when we all know that it isn't true.

Too many people are simply unwilling to acknowledge the enormous amount of support and back-up they enjoyed simply by being born into the right family.
Lets be honest, he took zero risk, he was a hobby film maker that believed he could make a successful business.

Inteligence & motivation may be inherited however hunger, motivation & desire for money are probably more important.
