    "Yet now, having succeeded as individuals on that basis, they act as if their success is not just independent of but an evolutionary step beyond all those facts, and seek to reshape the world to match that view."

    This is the age old social pathology that humans have faced again and again and in innumerable forms.  It seems that a true and robust democracy is the only way that a societies' wealth can be distributed in both a fair and meritocratic way.  That is--"If you can keep it."

    In the GOP your status is inversely proportional to your integrity.
