The Pitchforks are Coming

Plutocrat Nick Hanauer warns his fellow plutocrats that ever-increasing wealth inequality is stupid and will be their undoing.

I highly recommend taking 20 minutes to listen to Nick's warning.

1. I could've told them this 40 years ago.

They would apparently rather cut their nose off to spite their face.

2. Most of us could.

That one of them has figured it out, though, is a good thing.

4. All he ever does is "warn" his fellow plutocrats

It's his schtick. He wrote an article in Politico doing the same thing. It's just self-promotion. He knows damn well none of them are interested in anything other than protecting their wealth and making more money because that's how you get to be that rich and stay that way.

6. They should be in love with people like Bernie Sanders

Because if things don't start changing democratically, it won't be pitchforks - it will be guillotines.
