16. "middle class" - what a joke.
The true nature of income disparity in the US will never be discussed so long as people keep believing that there is a middle class. Sure, in some senses there is - those between the 95th and 99th percentile do make a lot less than the top 1%, but they still aren't like you and me. Everyone bellow that has way too much in common to be considered to be of different classes.
