3 of the 4 Kennedy brothers didn't have much of a lifetime. 2 of them war heros. Joe and Jack Kennedy both served in WWII, the former killed in action, the later narrowly survived. We obviously know how Jack and Bobby met their demise. Going into the politics and accomplishments of the 3 brothers that were politicians is rather pointless, considering we won't agree on anything. My point is not to compare them to the business giants of the 19th and 20th century, but to push back on the idea they have done nothing with their wealth. The Kennedy's didn't have to serve, they obviously didn't need to pay check.
So we agree. they have hoarded their wealth in trusts for no benefit other than tax evasion AND like millions of Americans, lost their lives in battle. I salute the soldier no doubt. But not the drunk driver in Chapaquidick or rapist in Palm Beach, shall we bring adultery into it?
But...of course I will not, as you astutely point out, compare them to the wealth creators like Dell, Gates, Jobs, Walton etc. Those men made millionaitres of factory workers and improved ALL of our lives.
