Much is said about the rich (first define what rich is) and how they take advantage of poor people. My question is why are the rich hated so much. Is it because people have a natural sense to be jealous of another's accomplishments. OR Last night I was watching Its a Wonderful Life. Mr. Potter was the richest man in town - dollar wise. He would stop at no lengths to increase his wealth. The well being of other citizens was of no concern to him. I was just wonder if many folks equate all rich people to Mr. Potter? Thoughts?
