Having poor in your society hurts the rich

(Maybe that will get their attention?)

"Maybe that will get their attention?"

No. For many wealthy people, half the point is having someone to look down on. They may attempt to eliminate such people, but not by improving their lot. Call it the cost of arrogance.

Read any old William Hamilton cartoons you happen to have on hand.

Thanks for the Hamilton connection. Knew his work, but didn't register his name.

We should demand high schoolers watch movies out of the 20s and 30s (like 'It Happened One Night' etc.) where the movie has a sense of justice and equality and is a challenge to the rich/ poor divide.
