But if those of this kind want to indulge in showing off their riches, let them do it. After all what would such people do with the accumulation of money with them. If they spend those huge sums of money in making palatial buildings that would benefit the architects, artisans, contractors and the governments besides beings eyecatching delights to the commons. In one or two generations time those buildings would either become museums or ghost bungalows or hotels or government offices, if we take the cue from the past !
I am a common man and I cannot think like aristocrats. But I do pity those neorich fellows who do everything in life to live like aristocrats of the past by building palatial buildings, some of them much bigger and stylish than the palaces of the royals of the past. Pitying because of their desparate dependency on servants and household staff on whom they have sold off their self esteem, privacy and personal hygiene. Real big houses are indeed prisons, may be even worse than prisons !
In one way you should be happy if you are not of the vulgar rich type who can afford a palace !
