25. Because nowhere is it written as a universal law that anyone has
a right to amass obscene amounts of wealth while others in society go homeless and hungry. Unless one can demonstrate that some essential social purpose is being served by such a concentration of wealth, I say it's time to question whether the wealthy should continue to enjoy their privileged status.

I do nothing that's essential to society other than think. But then I'm not a 1%er either. I don't claim any special privileges for myself. If certain people are going to enjoy special privileges (like the 1%), by God they'd better be serving some essential social purpose. Or I say it's time for some 1789 solutions.
