When you ask a socialist “how much money does a person need to have for them to be part of the ‘evil rich?’”
The answer is always “one more dollar than I have.”
J. Kb’s post nails it in more ways than one.
Something I learned while involuntarily finding myself and my family in three days of rioting in Venezuela and if you were in L.A. after Rodney King, you saw it too: Looters never go too far.
I did not live in the fancy part of town and if we had any kind of railroad system, we would have been perilously close to the wring side of the tracks. But contrary to what the Left kept promising, the poor and the indigent did not descend into the rich neighborhoods and invaded the homes of the filthy rich. Nope, they attacked the neighbor they perceived had more stuff than they did. They remembered that three houses down, they got a brand new color TV not three months ago and went after it. Or that the guy buys beer by the several cases and they went in and “confiscated” it. And the little corner bodega that was the only place to buy milk and bread nearby? Sure as shit the owners re rich; they cleaned it out.
My family place was untouched. It seems that a couple of cases of Molotov cocktails and a freak patrolling with a shotgun was enough deterrent to seek less aggressive targets. Socialists preaching the Revolution to the poor simply believe they are not targets because they [preach the “good word.” It is always fun to see the face of surprise and terror when they become plucked out of their goods even if they are meager by Upper Crust Standard.
There always is somebody poorer than you for whom you a re rich.
