The Happy Tutor

The Happy Tutor

The Happy Tutor, Morals Tutor to The Wealthiest Families in Every Empire Since Time Immemorial. Some say he is immortal. Here is is from Holbein's Illustrations to Erasmus' "The Praise of Folly." Note that the teacher wears a jester's cap and bells pushed back on his neck. So, Foolish Morals Tutors have always been retained to teach virtue to the rich. Maybe the truth is best expressed in fun ("serio ludere," serious play). Spare the rod and spoil the inheritor. The rich have their responsibilities no less than the poor.
