The super-wealthy can do anything (within legal and moral bounds) they want with their money. I don't really care to know what it is. Most will leave some "monument" of themselves in one form or another. That will be enough "enjoyment" for me.
Publicizing their good works will just invite critism. If they really believe in the Republican party or the National Rifle Association or a local symphony orchestra, someone will get "high and mighty" and pass judgment. What about starving human orphans somewhere or the rapidly vanishing river dolphins, they will cry with great moral vigor!!!
Sheesh. It is their money. I wouldn't want someone to be expecting me to make good works donations, just because I had more money than they do. Build more mazes and castles!!!
