"Member of a very rich family...." being a very rich millionaire didn't made him a human being!

"....easy and well lived." to be rich it doesn't mean that it makes the life "easy" and "well", do you "know" why?!

sometime ago the slaves of the kings, emperors and the poor, that the small enjoyments of life, and their even "miserable" existence itself, gave them happiness that the rich and the aristocrats envied (the plan was completely deceitful!)
what the former poor won from the results of the setup "revolutions", was the right to acquire the anxieties of the rich
for example the anxiety of acquisition, the anxiety of maintenance and the anxiety to increase profits
the small delights of life that made a difference in everyday life were lost forever
this promoted the implementation of the protocols of zionism, masonry that wanted societies to be gray, unsympathetic, cold, with no heart, so once again is shown how wise are the words of the script that says: where your heart is, it is and your treasure

Before 1909, Luis Alberto Sánchez Besa –a young Chilean engineer- was in France. Member of a very rich family his life was as the life of many others Southamerican in Paris, easy and well lived. But his pasion was the for the new sporting activity: the aviation. Become friend of many others latins in similar activities. He as an airplane maker and flying teacher in his own academy, was an exceptional individual. He was a brilliant engineer from the fact of the foundamental differences in design creativity and in his construction methods, as can be found comparing his designs with of the othes contructors of the same period, as can be found on many European and American old aviation magazines to-day. He owned a factory with about 600 workers and in it he build about 200 of his famous biplane Sanchez-Besa, of wich, 7 bombardement biplanes, were destined to the new Chilean Air Force. Nevertheless he --as Alberto Santos Dumont-- was a pacifist and when First World War, he transfer all his intallations to the French Government that because of the war had been nationalized all the new aviation industry. During, part of the war, Sánchez Besa was in Chile, a backward country were he was not considered in his real magnificence. For unknown reasons, he come back to France soon and never return to Chile.
