no one talks about money
how many people know how much money you have, how much you make and everyone assumes the best
ahhahah this is supposedly to keep class from being about money
as if it were … ahhahah okay so what is going on here culturally
it is a universal for one thing
the relationship between elegance and affluence
it’s kind of like England and France
there is something about being able to afford the luxury of being elegant but most people don’t realize the style is absolutely one of conscientious consideration, anything less is not a French aristocrat
that girl does it all … she can run a household of 1000 servants
can you afford that many?
can you imagine, how much work a woman must have had to take care of all the slaves?
and how some of them just despaired of it and largely ignored them, letting them take care of themselves, although they had no resources
but do not despair, Gentlemen have an equally stringent calling for conscientious consideration… if they want to have any class, they are devoted husbands to their wife and that was not even a possibility when they were comparing notes after dinner when the ladies retired to the withdrawing room while they smoked and drank
the ladies had tea
and when coffee became introduced
it was considered a la mode
to have a touch of nutmeg
nutmeg was 250 pounds an ounce
can you imagine?
That’s like the equivalent of $400 now.
History is full of so many interesting things.
Because people have the silliest ideas.
And the sexual politics is a wellspring of sport!
