Nick Hanuaer a multi billionaire and co founder of Amazon thinks the we are in for a revolution. He compares our current income disparity to the time just before the French revolution and the time of the Robber Barons in the 1890's. He is a proud and unapologetic capitalist. A self made member of the .01%, the richest of the rich. In his "Memo to My Fellow Zillionaire's" he says, "Seeing where things are headed is the essence of entrepreneurship. And what do I see in our future now? I see pitchforks.
"The problem is that inequality is at historically high levels and getting worse every day. Our country is rapidly becoming less a capitalist society and more a feudal society. Unless our policies change dramatically, the middle class will disappear.... . In fact, there is no example in human history where wealth accumulated like this and the pitchforks didn’t eventually come out. You show me a highly unequal society, and I will show you a police state. Or an uprising. There are no counterexamples. None."
