    Someone being rich does not mean they deserve it. A lot of very rich people did work very hard (a lot didn't too...), but even if they are director of a company or something, do they really 'deserve' more money than... the hard working corner shop guy who is open til midnight every day? The really good nurse who works overtime every week to support her family but gets paid a pittance for it? And they don't just get 'more'... they get 50x, 100x, even 1000x more.

    I'm not saying we should not reward those that are of economic value - that is a necessity - but i object to the drastic further step in saying they necessarily 'deserved' it.
