My biggest concern is that so many of them seem compelled to tell us poor schmucks how to run our lives. Probably since in their minds their wealth equates to intelligence and knowledge.
And they use the fedgov to do it.
Just like Robert Owen who was a self-made British man, after making it to the big time as an industrialist, he proceeded to set up the first commune in America in New Harmony, Indiana in 1826.
