    about income inequality, an unjust criminal justice system, oppressed middle class students, powerless women, etc.

    And then there's this alternate reality review at Breitbart's site, in which Valjean is a heroic job creator fighting against massive federal government overreach. Gahhh.

      Money's greatest evil, as shown over and over again in Les Mis, is it's capacity to distort the human spirt.  People who think for money, as Breitbart does, can't think at all any longer.  If you can reconcile turning your silver candlesticks over to the homeless man who robbed you as an act of Capitalist self interest, only the fact that your clothing is clean and you took a shower in the morning distinguishes you from the raving lunatic on the street corner.
