A hot-button topic making the rounds on the internet of late is the idea of ‘nepo babies’ – the offspring of wealthy, famous, or generally successful people being given a significant advantage in their lives and careers over those who come from more humble beginnings. It doesn’t necessarily mean they’re no good in their given field, but it’s just about undeniable that their parentage got them where they are today.
It can be a tricky debate to chime in on, based on the non-existence of an objective viewpoint. You either are a so-called nepo baby, or you’re not. The opposite side cannot truly empathize with you if they’ve never been in your shoes. The best we can do is try.
