Have you been wondering why the rich enjoy spending time with other rich people, especially around the holidays? Us neither. But they do, as professional scion of wealth (and accidental inheritance wrecker) Jamie Johnson kindly points out today on VF.com. "Each year," he says, "committee lists for the grand society balls are indistinguishable from those of past years." But why? Well, it's complicated, but in language that plebs might understand: Rich people like hanging out with other rich people because they're familar, and because they revere wealth and therefore each other. And don't forget the most important point: They have good food and booze at their parties! (Or, as Jamie puts it, "An abundance of food, drink, and amusement facilitates fun.") We know, it's nothing short of revelatory.
