You want to look at a permanent wealthy class? Look to your politicians, the same a**hats who decry a CEO for making money use insider trading and other unethical and illegal means to enrich themselves at tax payers expense. They provide nothing in return, they don't create jobs(government jobs don't count as they are dependent on the taxpayer for their paychecks). You are bitching at the wrong bunch of people if you want to end a "permanent wealthy class" in this country.
I know. The effect is the same, regardless of whomever becomes part of the permanent priviliged class.
All my point is that, when that permanent class develops, it eventually destabilizes society. I wasn’t making an entreaty on the evils of wealth.
Wealth, in and of itself, is not an evil thing to have and I am thankful that our society is free to create it.
