    I don’t think people really care who makes what and by how much. They start getting pissed when they can’t feed themselves and see no future for themselves or their children. That’s when they notice how much a Bill Gates has.

    That’s why there was the so called Arab Spring and riots sprung up in Spain, Italy, Turkey etc etc.
