If I could put a positive spin on what is happening, I would probably say that we are seeing the last throws of a decrepit and fading empire. However, I probably said that decades ago. There has been a changing of the guard; it is no longer the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Carnegies, or Rothchilds, but, the Theils, Gates, Zuckerbergs and Bezos that are holding the purse strings; but, I really doubt their motives are any more altruistic than previous generations, despite any image they may try to present to the public at large.
