Why are people suddenly upset that billionaires are donating money to rebuild Notre Dame?
Because they envy their magnificence, which is a virtue and a aspect of fortitude:
… “magnificence is the discussing and administering of great and lofty undertakings, with a certain broad and noble purpose of mind,” “discussion” referring to the inward intention, and “administration” to the outward accomplishment.
Wherefore to do something great, whence magnificence takes its name, belongs properly to the very notion of virtue.
Now for the doing of a great work, proportionate expenditure is necessary, for great works cannot be produced without great expenditure.
Hence it belongs to magnificence to spend much in order that some great work may be accomplished in becoming manner. (ST)
The twisted miserable mobs hate that.
