I think them far from idiots. They are clever, calculating and manipulative. They have to be to get to the top,
But saying that Tao I wouldn't say this means there is something sinister about Judaism or the specific people which personally I don't think you do think, I think it has a lot to do with there cultural back ground. As I’ am Diaspora Greek Cypriot myself, coming from a Christian back ground from a Middle Eastern country quite literally next door. I see in my community of Diaspora in the UK a lot who have accumulated a lot of money, out of all fairness originally from hard work but it seems some people did take a devious path or who started of legit and ended up not as legit. Or I have seen people that came from a very good family backgrounds become rich and remained very moral still. I've experienced an anti-Greek attitude purely and simply because of my families social status before and had the impression of being some kind of devil (that was a first). I guess it's different when you’re talking about rich compared to out right private jet wealth though. But it does make me wonder if one should be extremely cautious on judging. With Jewish people and not all are wealthy but the ones who did accumulated a lot of it, it is a cultural right. One should understand Jewish history to see how they got in this position (quite rightfully I would say).
The consequence of a lot of wealth is you start becoming dependent on it and lose touch of the greater population this aspect has nothing to do with ethnicity, people or religion, I'm sure Bananabrain can tell you that Jews would snob other Jews that are not even in the same class too. Today Jewish people are really struggling to keep hold of the cultrual background actually since quite a while ago, they are intergrating with ease! It's more of a rich on rich problem which Im sure afew government taxations can sort out, but they are too busy making money too.
