Give us what we want

Frank J. Fleming explains the basics of society.
Society is organized into three groups. First and most important, we have politicians — mostly unsullied by the stench that comes with having worked in the private sector — who decide the nation’s direction. Then we have everyday workers whose main job is to elect and re-elect those politicians.
And on society’s lowest rung, we have job creators and business owners. They’re awful people who often like to be all rich even though others find that infuriating — but thankfully, they’re not numerous enough to have much voting power. The only reason we keep these wretches around is for the jobs they provide and the tax money we get from them.
