    Do you contend that affluent adults who don't have to work, being financially supported by their

    parents are EXTREMELY LUCKY & FORTUNATE that they never have to work for a living like the majority of people? Why? Why not?

    The key phrase is 'HAVE to work.'   This does not imply that they cannot work.   We know that rewarding work can bring about real meaning, purpose and feelings of accomplishment.  Being able to pick the work you want to do - because financial security doesn't enter into it - means you have the freedom to find out what gives you most joy, work-wise and then involve yourself in it.   So, in this instance, such people are fortunate, I'd say.

    Being born with a " silver spoon " isn't always a bad thing...there are those who dedicate their lives to charity work and setting up organizations and scholarships to give back to communities .
    There are some people who don't have to work to be financially sound, but chose to because of a passion, better sense of fulfillment/self-worth, interaction/exchange of ideas to better our world...or satisfy a dream...bringing changes...

    Yes of course! Just as I would say someone who is born into a crack addicted single parent dwelling in a gang infested high crime area is EXTREMELY UNLUCKY & UNFORTUNATE.
    None of us get to choose our starting point in life. That pretty much is left up to chance/luck. It's what we do with the cards we're dealt that makes all the difference in the world.
    Some kids grow up flying on private jets around the globe, staying in 5 star hotels, receiving a Maserati, Audi R8 Spyder, or Porsche Carrera GT as a high school graduation present. It's not their fault that they have a multi-million dollar trust fund, 5 figure monthly allowances, and access to people of power, wealth, and fame who could easily fast track any business idea they might have. In the event of illness they fly in the top surgeon/specialist.
    Anyone who does not have to earn money for a living is free to pursue their dream career or passion projects. Being born into wealth or winning a 100M lottery are both extremely lucky events.

    They may be lucky and fortunate to have been born into such wealth, but it's what they do with their fortune that counts. Some of these kids who are born to W&W (wise and wealthy) parents are taught the value of hard work. I heard of one young man, who had wealthy parents, but was made to work in the family business alongside the employees. He learned the business from the inside out and was able to increase it beyond his parents' expectations.
    On the flip side there are the wealthy parents who simply spoil their children, give them everything they want and the children grow up to be worthless bums. Wealth is not a bad thing. It's what you do with it that counts.
