Quoth the poor person! I think that is a bit overstated. I think you meant "can" turn into. Rich people can be rich for all sorts of reasons, and only some of them involve screwing the other guys. Others can lead very quite lives not screwing anybody. and then you can have the Bill Gates and Warren Buffets of the world too. It's actually easy to be altruistic when you have way more than you need.


Ignorance of the system that made them rich does not constitute a defense. The mechanism (no matter how "nice" you think they are) is based on exploitation. So yes, they are ALL screwing people.
