or maybe the world just isn't that simple oldschool...
Maybe "the rich" are just as flawed, condfused, and prone to human stupid as the rest of us. I believe much of the modern disconnect comes from many american communities becoming more isolated and electronic. For example romney's children likely attend private school, have rich friends, and have never met anyone on welfare ever.
Likely they've never even chatted outside their social circle.
There's a disconnect, but talking to a few people who have wealth (middle class here, ever shrinking, but can move between both teirs.) Not Supa rich mind you...
But many seem like decent human beings who just don't understand, I've had a few moments with my best friend, he is near poverity, if you've never gone to bed hungry you just don't understand.
What's worse a good number are a bit afraid of "the peasents storming the castle" what with the 99% ers, riots in europe, the rise of china on the world stage, and public restlessness across america, over the way things are going, much of which did contribute to obama's landslide victory in 2008. I think a lot of blue bloods are scared for a lot of reasons, and scared people are easy to convince into doing stupid shit. especally when they can go "lalalalalala this isn't happening, I'm safe behind my wall of money lalalalalalala"
I think this might be the reason that so many wealthy doners are jumping on romney's bandwagon.
This does not bode well & money can't protect anyone it's just credit, paper, and agreed value.
