    Fuck the bottom 90%. If you can’t get to the top 10%, you’re a moron.

      Its this type of compassionate response that shows the value of the current conservative movement.

      Also, moron != 90% of the population.
      With an attitude like “fuck the bottom 90%” the government would be failing its contract, and we should expect a revolt.

      The revolt will come once the proletariat finish drinking their lattes and reading bullshit articles like the above on their iPhone Xs.

      As to the inequality part of the argument, there will always be a top 10% and a bottom 90%, and if people from third-world countries can come out of poverty and make it to the top 10% in our country, then I have no sympathy for our American-born bottom 90%.

    No, the aristocracy is the top 0.001%, the 400 families in the country who have 60%+ of all the capital and wealth in the country.

    Tech workers and businesses are a modern day merchant class. Politically Powerful as a group, well off individually, and have the luxury of agency.

    Actually a very good read. I'm sure plenty of people will be put off by the title.
