Yep. Monkey see, monkey do.
Excellence isn’t rewarded because it upsets the system.
And then the world ends up mediocre because excellence was discouraged and often punished.
And yet excellence rises like cream to the surface. Bezos. Gates. Zuckerberg. Sports figures, although I can’t think of any right now.
Don't know what proportion is excellence vs what proportion is just a little luck and ruthless winner-take-all getting the upper hand on the competition.
Zuckerberg started out as an opportunist and made something of someone else’s idea. The real geniuses were the ones who created early popular computing systems.
Sucker berg started out as an opportunist and made something of someone else’s idea.
Yep. Like how many others have done. Take credit for the ideas and hard work of others, rake in the dough, use patents and copyrights to separate the others from the fruit of their labors.

It was a funny one.
