The truth is...

I possess a lot of wealth. I'm not talking about the monetary side. Arguably that's the lesser of my assets. But I've been given the opportunity and privilege of amassing a huge amount of intellectual wealth. I know things, I have learned how to apply techniques to solve problems, and I know how to read literature that helps do more of the same.

I worry that folks forget that this sort of thing is a different, but tangible kind of wealth.

Unlike traditional objects, I can share it and it loses no value. Indeed, it may gain in value. But it is not as easy to share as a loaf of bread or a $20 bill.

I also wonder what it means for me when we talk about various ideas for appropriating concentrated power and wealth. What obligations and duties does that leave me with?

> I find that learning about how it works makes one less manipulable by them.

I've heard the opposite, but I don't really live in the real world anyway, so I probably haven't got real sources, only imagined ones
