The trick is that it's easy for our dumb ape brains to rationalize the concept of an individual, and ascribe achievement to that individual, than the inordinately complex social structure we've created to facilitate individuals.

You know, it's kind of like when they say a videogame was made by an "indie game developer", as though the creator of the game generated the electricity that allowed for the manufacture of the electronics and computers that allowed them to compile the programming language that was used in the creation of the game.

I mean, it's probably disrespectful to call Journey a "game", but nevermind that, because independence is a myth in modern society, but it's a cool one, so we blame the economy on the president, we blame The Last Jedi on that Asian woman, and I blame those Dota 2 balance changes on that asshole community manager who needs to eat a huge dick.

Everybody here knows exactly who I am talking about, he's a goddamn asshole and I'm going to egg his house.  And you can be assured that yes, I personally grew the feed that I used to raised the chickens that I personally hunted down, at that farm across the street.  It is only a matter of time before they poop out the eggs and I throw them at the dude's house.

So yes, I hope that answers your headline.  I am independent.  Hear my keyboard roar.

Wouldn't Jenner be a self unmade man?

"Yes, Kylie comes from a wealthy family and she got a visibility boost from her family but she owns her company and is valued based on earnings she has personally received and on the value of the company she founded."

Oh.. fark off with that BS.

Yeah, I couldn't believe that shiat either. "self made", my skinny white ass...

Kylie Jenner's company is worth $900 million ? That is just gross. It demonstrates completely why wealth has nothing to do with virtue. No hard work , great intelligence, just dumb luck. I mean, why not president Kylie Jenner? She is just as qualified as The Idiot currently occupying the position. At least , she earned more of her money than he did. She is arguably more wealthy than he is.

No kidding. All she had to do was say "I want to sell makeup" and she had access to everything she needed to be successful. She had money to start the company, and she was famous enough to get it sold in stores.

They're only famous because their famous friend murdered two people.

Let me quote the band Pulp..

But she didn't understand,
She just smiled and held my hand.
Rent a flat above a shop,
Cut your hair and get a job.
Smoke some fags and play some pool,
Pretend you never went to school.
But still you'll never get it right,
'Cause when you're laid in bed at night,
Watching roaches climb the wall,
If you called your Dad he could stop it all.


I'm sure you could write pages about the advantages she has in starting her own business compared to 99% of the population.

It's really astonishing what Kris Jenner managed to make out of one lousy pee tape. Is she smart, or just lucky?

She's lucky that a lot of people aren't smart.

Self-made, in that their wealth was not inherited. Robert Kardashian, when he died, was worth maybe $30 million. Kim alone is worth nearly twelve times that.

And do you know what? The Kardashian and Jenner women made their money much more honestly than another reality show star I could name. And they never made a child cry just to look tough.

Turning $5000 into a million takes skill.

Turning $30 million into $400 million is inevitable.

When your family is worth $30 million you have a ton more opportunities available to you to make even more money. Nothing against people making money, but at least recognize that you had the court stacked in your favor.

Exactly. She started a successful business, but she's not "self-made." She started life with a huge leg-up from her family's wealth. She also got a huge leg-up in the makeup industry due to her fame, which again, she didn't have to work for. Kim basically just bestowed fame on her by putting her on TV. By the time she had the brilliant business idea of "I like lipstick," all of the barriers to success were already cleared for her. All she had to do was put her name on something and, as long as it didn't completely suck, she'd make money.

To make a cooking analogy, calling her success "self-made" is the equivalent to writing your name on a store-bought sheet cake and calling it homemade.

I agree it's silly ot refer to someone like Kylie Jenner as "self-made" But I have to give a little bit of credit to somebody who's born rich enough not to do anything but spend money for the rest of their lives but actually goes out and accomplishes something.

Sure it's easy to make money when you have a lot to start with, but it's easier to just lie around the pool and have the maid bring you champage.
