I did it myyyyyy way! bollocks you did.

Cracked.com is often worth the read. Usually more for their humour than anything else.Every so often one of them gets off a bit of a rant though. This one's a goody. It makes a couple of nice points, which sadly will probably be written off and ignored on the basis that it has some traceable connection to comics. The point is made that a lot of today's hero's are millionaires. Why don't we hate them, given they're horribly rich - they generally aren't complete arses - as in the behave as responsible members of the community, like people. With power comes responsibility. And money is little more than another form of power, It should be regarded as such. When you work hard and become rich, you shouldn't suddenly gain privilege. While you may have worked hard to succeed, that success is nonetheless built on the work of others. Becoming rich means you are able to do more, to contribute more, providing more of a base for those following you to build upon. It's a fairly basic change in the way we should be looking at wealth. Not something that could be legislated, but more of an attitude that needs to be changed.
