[Paleopsych] The rich get more benefits

I think it's useful to challenge the assumption
that the rich are rich because they are more
deserving than we are.

More powerful perhaps, but not more virtuous.

In the old days of England the peasants had
associations too, and they occassionally
burned down the houses of aristocrats who
got too high handed.

Actually, the rich already pay most of the taxes, if you call rich  people 
above $100k/yr. So any tax cut will affect them simply because that is  where 
the taxes are. Taxes are a drain on the economy, so tax cuts make all  people - 
even poor and middle class - better off.

Yes they should.  Any idea why they find themselves outside the economic 

law?  I certainly don't.
