probably just an exaggeration of an aristocrat who has never experienced that the bottom of society needs to fight for food, shelter and safety. Such an outlook on life, once established, is difficult to change in one's own lifetime. It's easy to blame these people if one has been born into bourgeoisie and therefore from the cradle to the grave being able to focus on flow, enjoyment, self-actualization and transcendence. probably baron keynes did not know better. I do not blame him, but probably capitalism is necessary at a certain point of human development. even during one's own life time. marxism failed because it gave the bottom of society no incentive to perform better than others. always the same petty reward distributed by a big brother government.
