It has an often repeated axiom that a person can learn a whole lot about a society by how it treats its poor. But just as much can be learned by looking at how that society treats its rich. Indeed, the economic future of the poor and our nation will be determined in the coming decades by how we treat the people in this country who create great wealth. It will be determined by our understanding of the so-called rich. And our ability to protect this minority.
It is an unpopular thing to say, I know. Rich people need help? Rich people need to be protected? Rich people a minority? Give me a break. They just seem to keep getting richer! Regrettably, too many Americans, and far too many intellectuals and politicians, dont understand these people we call the rich. And how it is they got rich in the first place.
Because most of us dont actually know any of these rich people, we instead experience them in the abstract, through policy debates and statistics, and always through the prism of our own ideological lens. We look at the raw data to state our case either against or for the richest among us. In the end, our view of the rich has much to do about how all of us view "capitalism" itself. Indeed, in that respect, our opinions about the rich are a sort of Rorsach test, revealing more about ourselves than anything else.

Can anyone tell of a rich country that has no, zero rich people? Any person that can come up with a plan to make something lots of folks will want will make money. Does anyone know of a man called Mr Ford? He was poorly educated, could hardly spell and he was poor as dirt. But he had a idea on making cars. In his day the cheapest car was $18,000 only very rich people owned one. Mr Ford sold a good car for $480 and he made millions, maybe billions. His work help make America very rich. Are there people out there that hate him for doing so, I am sure there are. If you hate the rich try this, get a plane ticket and fly down to El Salvador and take a bus out of the old dirty city and check out how the people there live. When you get back to America you will kiss the ground.
