In chapter 8 of The Constitution of Liberty, Friedrich Hayek defends the idea of some people inheriting vast sums of money for the good of society as a whole. You see, we proles can’t handle “the propagation of new ideas in politics, morals, and religion” ourselves. We need people “who can back their beliefs financially” to do that sort of thing.

It is undeniable that such a leisured group will produce a much larger proportion of bons vivant than of scholars ad public servants and that the former will shock the public conscience by their conspicuous waste. But such waste is everywhere the price of freedom; and it would be difficult to maintain that the standard by which the consumption of the idlest of the idle rich is judged wasteful and objectionable is really different than that by which the consumption of the American masses will be judged wasteful by the Egyptian fellaheen or the Chinese coolie.
