It's not because they're rich

Matt Taibbi nails it:
People like Dimon, and Schwarzman, and John Paulson, and all of the rest of them who think the “imbeciles” on the streets are simply full of reasonless class anger, they don’t get it. Nobody hates them for being successful. And not that this needs repeating, but nobody even minds that they are rich. 
What makes people furious is that they have stopped being citizens.
And then he gives examples. It's a must read.

UPDATE: Says Ministry of Truth, "Let's admit that if corporations are people then they are abusive, sociopathic people who have no sense of patriotism or empathy."

Stay with it! Offline for a while, I'm just getting revved up for this campaign.

Read Fromm years ago. Friends of mine worked the docks -went skinny dipping in the Hudson across from the to be built WTC in the 50's.

I'm sorry, but I just don't see why I need to use my money helping you poor people. (sarcasm, I'm not rich)
