There is a term for giving to the eldest son called "Primogeniture."
Forget "Democracy." Forget "fair." Forget all the ultra-rich who've "taken the ticket" and say they aren't leaving anything for their children. These are all post-enlightenment ideas. Like usury, Democracy, and Scientism, I have found pretty much all post-enlightenment ideas to be lies.
All of my investment decisions revolve around the inheritance I will give my children. And I have many and plan to have more.
Adam Smith explains Primogeniture's prevalence in Europe:
[W]hen land was considered as the means, not of subsistence merely, but of power and protection, it was thought better that it should descend undivided to one. In those disorderly times, every great landlord was a sort of petty prince. His tenants were his subjects. He was their judge, and in some respects their legislator in peace and their leader in war. He made war according to his own discretion, frequently against his neighbours, and sometimes against his sovereign. The security of a landed estate, therefore, the protection which its owner could afford to those who dwelt on it, depended upon its greatness. To divide it was to ruin it, and to expose every part of it to be oppressed and swallowed up by the incursions of its neighbours. The law of primogeniture, therefore, came to take place, not immediately indeed, but in process of time, in the succession of landed estates, for the same reason that it has generally taken place in that of monarchies, though not always at their first institution.I like the Roman perspective:
Rather, Roman aristocracy was based on competition, and a Roman family could not maintain its position in the ordines merely through hereditary succession or having title to lands. Although the eldest son typically carried his father's name in some form, he was expected to construct his own career based on competence as an administrator or general and on remaining in favor with the emperor and his council at court.In terms of the belongings that I have not earned on my own, but have been entrusted to me by God. I am not beholden toward the Godless ideas of "equality" to determine how inheritance is passed on. Instead, I can decide primarily by whom will be the best steward of my resources to continue on the "family" legacy.
What that actually means in the face of my disownment of my Korean heritage and the impossibility of my inter-racial children from continuing my Korean side, I will need to direct my children toward some other direction.
Since America is not a real identity, I will most likely need to move to Europe one day in order to help my children adopt a European country's identity. I have to consider their abilities to find wives and the future of my grand children.
I am seeing a lot of advantages to Italy in the face of the incoming, worldwide financial collapse. Vox Day already moved there. My values tend to match up more with ancient Greco-Rome and Christianity, so it seems like a natural fit.
Fortunate for me, I've heard that learning Italian is much easier to learn when you know Spanish.
