I'm a little baffled by the Mail Online suggesting that Taylor Swift is somehow uber-generous for buying her own parents a mansion that costs $2.5 million dollars. Big whoop...they're her PARENTS...not some random homeless strangers. 2.5 million isn't even that much money to an extremely wealthy person, anyway, and it certainly shouldn't be where family is concerned in my opinion.
In some cultures people are expected to take care of their parents as they age, in fact it goes without saying in most cultures.
Has our culture become so disgustingly narcissistic and selfish that it's considered GENEROUS for an extremely wealthy and famous young woman to buy her parents a nice house that she can reasonably afford?
Or is this just stupid journalism?
I think it's relevant because political attitudes in the U.S. have become so strange and our culture has become over-individualized to the point of promoting narcissism.
