  •  Examples from 600 years ago sorta proves (2+ / 0-)

    mightymouse's point:

    Since we have blessed few examples of the incredibly wealthy doing anything beneficial for overall society today, going back 500-600 years to get good examples shows how necessary it is to get the current crop of greedsters under control.

    More recent examples might include Carnegie, Gates, Buffett, but that's precious few when there are thousands holding incredible wealth.
