There are some people that seek to associate themselves with the best. They seek, the kind, intelligent, honest people in their community. They emulate them. Eventually, these people become who they associate with.
Then there are those that seek the company of the wealthy. Those with power and privilege. Having no true power of their own, when they are abandoned by the ones they clung to, we see them rapidly decline in social standing. The kind, honest, intelligent souls they formerly shunned, ridiculed or took advantage of now invest their time, love and money elsewhere.
The business you work for, the university you attend and the country you live in may be characterized as one of these people. Which is it?
