I’d just add I draw the line when it comes to “ultra-successful” simply because the world as a whole is still in such a sorry state. Bill Gates is successful, yes, but none of us, no matter how wealthy, escape the backdrop of humans struggling to alleviate suffering yet so often engaging in counter-productive behaviors, hard to watch. Lets face it: you’re not uber-wealthy if you live in a slum (we all do, see), either physically or metaphysically speaking. Spaceship Earth is far from the idyllic one in Wall-e, where everyone just kicks back and is taken care of (the stereotype of “idle rich” as in “what I’d do if not working” — kinda dumb though, as “just kicking back” is bad for the physique, not to mention one’s mental acuity).
