• How do you know what they do and don't understand? You're making an assumption on someone's understanding of the world based soley on the size of their paycheck. How would your logic change for a person who's been on welfare all their lives who suddenly hit the lottery and became rich? Would they not understand the poor now because they are rich? How about Oprah Winfrey? She grew up without running water and is now worth over $3Billion? How about Larry Ellison? Grew up in Manhattan and the south side of Chicago in government housing and is now worth over $61Billion. How about instead of blaming rich people for the world's poor, you instead show the poor that they can find a way out, just like others have done.
  • The rich don't always have smooth lives. They have to wonder if anyone likes them for themselves or if they all just want their money! Besides that they have poor people constantly begging them for money! They are already paying something like 35% of their income in taxes for programs to help the poor! Besides that they are usually the ones setting up scholarships and grants. And I know from personal experience that if you loan poor people money 3 out of 4 of them will not improve their financial situation, they will come back the next month to borrow again! You are just enabling them to stay poor.
