An open letter to Paul Graham
Rick Webb

Leveling the playing field through taxes, improved services, education, etc for the poors (despicable term which in this case includes most of what used to called the middle class), makes it possible for MORE people to try their hand at entrepreneurship. How he doesn’t get that is a little mystifying.

Also, it strikes me that he is confusing growing the pie — where the percentages stay the same = good thing — with a smaller and smaller group consuming/owning a larger and larger chunk. The pie might be growing but not at the rate it is being co-opted by the ultra-rich.

Thank you for being a human. Great article.
