I am a member of perhaps the most reviled sub group in society. I am an affluent, healthy, well-educated, middle-aged white man born and earning my living in a spacious, resource-rich province and nation with a moderate political democracy and a free-market economy. I have almost every privilege there is, so it makes little sense to take pride in capitalizing on the opportunities such privilege affords. I wonder how I'd do as a single mother in rural India fighting to keep her children alive. I don't think I've squandered my opportunities, but I suspect I would not survive well without them. I don't think a support group for my kind would garner much pity from the rest of the world. Retribution, reconciliation and a painful reckoning are coming my way, and some much needed redemption.
