    "Parasite"  I think that word describes the behavior pretty accurately, and is understood by almost everyone.
    Some people think the parasites are at the top; others think they're at the bottom.  Some people think the parasites are in the private sector; others think they're in the public sector.  Some people think they work in finance; others think they work on the factory floor.

      Sure, there are plenty of zombie authoritarians out there, but they make up about 40% - on a good day.

      I think I make myself pretty clear to others who I think the parasites are.

      I think you prove my point.  It's a popular word.
