I'm not saying it would be a good idea, revolutions seldom make people
happier especially not the poor. But the French Revolution did accomplish
one (and only one as far as I can tell) of its goals, it did seperate the
heads from a great many rich people's shoulders. I am saying that one way
or another that wealth gap will stop accelerating and super ultra crazy
rich people are fools if they're not worried about it and trying to find a
way to make that transition less apocalyptic.
