Overprivileged People, A Dangerous Creation

They say that a man with nothing to loose is the most fearsome and destructive human being on the face of the world. I do not dispute such a claim . Yet, after much thinking, I realize that the opposite is true as well. Not only that, those with the most to lose will do whatever it takes to keep it and even obtain more. Whoever gets in their way will be paid a heavy price. They are the insanely overprivileged.

Why do I refer to them as ‘insane’? For that matter, why refer to them as ‘overprivileged’? Even Microsoft Word disregards that such a term exist as opposed to underprivileged. (Notice which word is highlighted by a red underline when you type.)

In my old post entitled The Privileged Mindset I wrote about how privileged people think and behave. I made a conclusion based upon having many advantages in a society that is built and govern on the premise  that certain attributes, many of them beyond anyone’s control, are given certain privileges based on simply possessing those attributes:

With many privileges, a person’s sense of self and reality can become completely distorted as power often corrupts. the privilege mindset comes to those who have achieved certain levels of social ascension by simply being born with that which is considered normal and admirable. However, the truth is that the more privileges you have, the less humanity you attain especially if you see nothing wrong with having more privileges than the next person.

Those with the most of these ‘advantages’ become overprivileged. They become sheltered within their own worlds devoid of reality and morality. As such they will most likely say or do harmful things to others and see nothing wrong with it as they are “protected” and even unpunished. Why? Because the society that upholds those with the most privileges helps to shield and support them somehow or another. This helps breed sociopathic behaviors.

This is why it makes sense that white, American, wealthy, heterosexual, relatively young, able bodied, Christian males are highly dangerous with white…females being a very close second. They can get away with all kinds of shit and can still have supporters, even the underprivileged kind.

  1. I believe if I had been born with a silver spoon in my mouth and a trust fund. I would be a terrible monster indeed. It would not be pretty. That why I believe the priviledged individuals have no apathy or sympathy for people with less priviledge. Their sense of entitlement just blinds them and they have no sense of right and wrong.

  2. Whites are dangerous period regardless of privilege status. They created a term called “whites” and the world has never been the same.

    As for the wealthy, whites…they’re just higher up on the Megalomania Meter.

    Right there with you.

    “Do you know what makes a human being decent? Fear. And therein lies the problem. None of you has anything left to fear anymore. You rest comfortably in seats of inscrutable power, hiding behind your false idol, far from judgement, lives shrouded in secrecy, even from each other.” ~ Loki, Dogma

  4. Wonderful post.

    This is one of my favorite that you have done. I have a lot of experience dealing with these over-privileged folk (I live in upscale Scottsdale) and you are right on the money. They are morally stunted. Children have more of an ability to feel empathy or deal with situations than they do.

  5. @BrothaWolf I can relate to this. California has a ton of over privileged people. More than I can count. They really have a sense of entitlement. Doesn’t matter if they’re Republican,Democrat,liberal,conservative or independent. The political affiliation doesn’t matter. And you’re right–it doesn’t matter if they have a lot of money or not. They truly do live in a sheltered world.

  6. Very deep and insightful post, Brothawolf! This is so insightful about the neurosis of the Overprivileged, as you put it-that I feel as though I am being allowed to almost get a literal visual of those who posess such a twisted mind set! By the way, Dogma was quite a profound movie in a lot of ways, (though it was simply passed off as a comedy), and that previous stated quote from Loki was absolutely spot on, indeed! Oh, and having previously lived in Cali for most of my youth-I would concur with Kushite Prince that there are quite a number of overprivileged brats there (some I have known for a long time), personally!

    1. The thing about overprivileged people is when they get hurt when they are caught red-headed with their bullshit. They will blame the accusers first and foremost because taking any accountability.

  7. So true! I remember this episode in the 90’s on Oprah, when they were talking to White guests and audience members about prejudices, bigotry. etc. And this woman on the stage said that her culture (white American) was a “cultrue of denial”..It was a trip, to say the least!
