Perhaps the reason the rich backed Obama is because enough of them finally realized that the progression of the whole is essential for their progression. In other words, helping others is not just charity, it’s also self-defense.
Self-isolation isn’t an option for the rich and educated–at least in the long-term. It’ll only lead to further divides and then their position of power being removed by force.
If you want to see where the real power is, look to who who’s multiplying the most. Unless the ruling class has the power to commit genocide or use tactics that divert attention completely away from the wealth gap, the time the rich have to live on top is limited.
The ONLY real solution is to elevate the masses to a level of education, intelligence, and comfort that will prevent them from hating those who have what they don’t. Anything else is a temporary buffer solution prior to revolution. ::
