First law: Success = Privilege x (Intention + Effort + Luck). Privilege acts as a platform for success and it’s height acts as a multiplier on hard work, effort and intention. The more privilege you have, the more your hard work counts.
Second law: The biggest driver of privilege is birth – specifically who you are born to and where they are located. This combination ends up determining the ease with which you get opportunities to accumulate education, power and wealth – all of which combine to further increase the height of the privilege platform.
Third law: For every bit of privilege present, there is an equal and opposing internal force that refuses to acknowledge it. The more you have it, the harder it becomes to see it.
