The children of the ultra-rich benefit immediately from birth; they often grow up in less-stressful homes, receive better medical care, and get expensive and exclusive education. They also have good connections on graduation and end up forming the elites, who sit atop of our society. At the same time most families in the United States cannot afford to send their children to college these days. Our society is now almost a caste system; those on top stay on top and those at the bottom remain there. The chance of moving up the ladder to a better life is becoming less and less possible in America.

In reality, the super-rich are worse than regular thieves or burglars; their crimes hurt a lot more people. Frequently they get away with their crimes without punishment. To my mind, anyone who chooses to keep more than a few million dollars for himself is selfish, immoral, un-American, and inhumane. What do they want to do with all that money? As the saying goes: you can't eat two chickens at the same time. If you choose to keep that much money, you are, in fact, stealing it from the rest of us and from all of humanity: you are a disgusting thief, an undeserving scum who should be treated accordingly.
