"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Seriously, if I lived in a 10.5 million dollar flat, carried an Amex Black Card, and had access to hundreds of millions through my parents foundation, I would care little about money. Care implies respect and responsibility. It is like air. You don't really care about it until you choke, you don't even think about it.

If she had to actually work for it or create a budget for important items, she would care a lot for it because she would understand what it really means.

She doesn't need to. She gets her stuff and the perks of it without having to think about it.

I have noted that is usually has the opposite effect. Most misers do seem to come from well to do backgrounds. To pull a Clinton here, it depends how you define the word Care.

Does she mean "don't care" in the sense that since it's always available she gives it about as much thought as her next breath of air? Or does she mean "don't care" in the sense that she is indifferent to money and material possessions.

Must be the former, i.e., she's used to having great piles of undeserved wealth lying around, ever since she was a tot. If it were the latter, she'd probably be living in a more modest home.

I strongly suspect you are right. People throw money at her because of who her parents are and - to a lesser extent - who her husband is.

Yet the alternative is there - maybe she really doesn't care. That she lives in an expensive place because it's expected by the circles she moves in, not because it is what she particularly wants. Sometimes I do try to be generous and see the good in people! That can be a strain.  :shrug:
