Not since the bank run in It’s a Wonderful Life have we seen such a concise explanation of how the American system works:
I hear all this, you know, “Well, this is class warfare, this is…” whatever. No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody. You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police-forces and fire-forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory — and hire someone to protect against this — because of the work the rest of us did.
In case that gives you a debilitating case of Warm Fuzzies, may be recommend Ned Beatty’s speech in Network as a chaser?
