The One Percent

As I was favourably impressed by Jamie Johnson’s ‘Born Rich’ I decided to catch this documentary too.I didn’t find this one so compelling.The only response I can make is recall the old adage ‘If you’re not Liberal when you’re 25, you have no heart. If you’re not Conservative when you’re 35, you have no brain.’

In my opinion the best part is when Adnan Khashoggi opines “There is no equality in life. Forget about it. We are what we are. We are created layers over each other. This is it.”

Also the concluding part with his parents is worth watching,especially when his mother reminds him that she was not born rich and at one time might have thought differently.She goes on to say how her current behaviour is influenced by her concerns for his dad.His dad suggests how it might not be possible to change the whole world and it might be enough to influence a few lives.
