Multi-millionaire, 52 years old, drives a POS import like I do. Maybe spends $200 a week on social activities. Gets his clothes from goodwill or the veterans store. His only goal in life is to enjoy coffee with his older friends while teaching himself French and Mandarin on the internet.
My pilot buddy you are all familiar with. Probably worth a couple million. 43 years old, no wife, no kids, and is completely dedicated to his company. Mentioned something about a family...maybe...probably not...but he's more obsessed about cigars and buying a boat that a wife or rugrats.
Senior pilot who makes over six figures and consults on the side in the aviation world. No wife, no children, 46 and just hits the gym while traveling the world on his perks. Owns a nice house in a fine suburb, obsesses over his cash flow even though he is in better financial shape than most any one I know.
Which leads me to my observation.
With more and more men refusing to marry and breed, there is a permanent "Bachelor Class" forming. However, an interesting aspect of this "Bachelor Class" is that they are without a doubt the most "wealth forming" class in the world.
They have no children.
They have no wives.
They have no divorce.
They have no alimony.
They all make damn good money
and with all that free time
Are pursuing entrepreneurial ventures
And alas, all those variables and traits mean...
They have a ton of cash.
I am not rich by any means, but even with my meager earnings, the fact I have no children or wife means I at least have SOME savings. Pro-rate that into the future and when I die, heirless, there will still be some significant funds to be bequeathed.
Thus, while everybody is focused on paying off their student loans, getting out from underneath their mortgage, finally closing their alimony, etc. etc., there is this "elite" and "numerous" bachelor class that I (conservatively) estimate will have easily $4 trillion in wealth when they die to pass on.
So who, precisely, will inherit it?
Well, that depends.
I personally plan to split my "estate" between my girlfriend who has treated me kindly and a little varmint like creature that has endeared me to her childish antics.
My millionaire real estate friend is so indifferent and complacent he intends to let it fall to the state.
My pilot buddy hasn't thought that far, but that's the whole point...
You bachelors need to think about what you're going to do with the wealth you've obviously built beyond what you can consume.
This is one of those rare problems you "wish you had," but still, your decision today on how to bequeath that money will have an affect on a world that will be after your death. Ergo, any moral man will want to make the right decision, ensuring his life-time-currency would be put to the most noble use. Do you donate it to the local "pink ribbon campaign" that has yet to solve...anything? Do you donate it to the local food shelf to feed people too incompetent to support themselves? How about your alma mater that will brainwash the youth on rape culture and socialism? Or do you donate it to some third world African country charity that has never yet solved one problem on that continent?
The answer is very simple.
Give it to close, loved ones you genuinely cherished in life or
I don't know about you, but there are very few people that deserve my money, let alone the excess money I've earned through the pain and agony I spent learning to earn such money. And bar a GENUINE charity like St. Jude's Children's program, I'm going to give it to loved ones in my life who were noble, honest and true. Since this is such a small list of people and said monies run the risk of spoiling them, that means there would still be a significant amount of money left over. And with no obviously deserving heir to it, I will most likely burn it.
You must look at what you suffered as an American bachelor. You're privileged because you're male. You pay more in taxes for children that aren't yours. You're accused on sexual harassment if you merely look at a girl. And you're supposed to work all the hard, risky, dangerous and math-impaired jobs while the opposite number complains about a "wage gap." It's not just the ungratefulness, but hypocrisy and parasitism of society that disqualifies them from deserving any of this $4 trillion so it's upon you (and all bachelors) to set up a will that ensues the money only goes to deserving people, leaving none for the society that viewed you as a personal financial slave and whipping boy.
It may sound wasteful and insane, and certainly you could find enough deserving people of your post-mortem estate. But if it comes to it I'd rather have my money burn than give it to some welfare WIC receiving single mom of 4 who thinks she's entitled to 4 decades worth of my toiling. You must also consider your future finances as such.
Aaron Clarey is a mean bachelor who has the gall to spend all of his money on him. He thinks just because he worked hard he deserves all of his money when it was purely white male privilege that got him where he is today. He wrote really stupid books for men including "Bachelor Pad Economics," "Worthless" and "Enjoy the Decline," all patriarchal and math-based. You can also listen to his hate filled, sexist, racist, bigoted podcast here or watch his politically incorrect youtube videos here.
