NPR It’s Been A Minute “Are children a marginalized group?” (6/16/2023)
Contrapoints “Justice Part 1” (there's no Part 2 yet) Might Makes Right => The Oppressed will Inherit The Earth => j/k prosperity gospel God Loves Those Who Are On Top. I’m pretty sure it’s this. Will have to re-watch to check.
And, Postcolonial Astrology by Alice Sparkly Kat talks about how Enlightenment men (specifically men) appropriated remnants of Greek and Roman Thought and Values, warped them to match their Enlightenment Thought and Values, in order to posthoc validate their beliefs as inherited wisdom rather than contemporary opinion.

Mark Silver and boots metaphor was learned in this workshop: Power and Money training, 2023 iteration. (an annual course)
"The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money. Take boots, for example. ... A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that'd still be keeping his feet dry in ten years' time, while a poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet."Boots metaphor from Terry Pratchett Men At Arms (1993)
