3. Most earned their money in the same way slaveowners earned their money

They "earned" their money by creating all kinds of exploitation schemes. Load mutual funds and other legal ponzi schemes account for most billionaires. Others like Mitt Romney shipped high paying high tech jobs to China where Chinese women slave labor camps work for their slave owners $1.99/hour for 84 hours a week. Earning a living threw slavery is no longer legal because we are must honor the "Global slave economy."
