Why Do Americans Revere the Rich?
umair haque

Umair, a respectful salute to you as I think your opinions are the best Ive seen for explaining the big picture. I know there are always the emotional responses, the apologists, the rationalizers, the praisers of the great (and rich) men who have made it all possible but that doesn't wash with me. I believe not much, but one of the things I do believe is the concept of the one, and that may be you, the one with the بَرَكَة‎ (baraka) I have been hoping would start making some sense of our national insanity and interestingly enough it must come from someone outside the loony bin. I love irony.

Like what you read? Give Charles Kroeger a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
