Thomas Frank on the Paradise Papers
And the myth of beneficent wealthy people that sustain our economy. We built up this myth of the well deserving rugged individual entrepreneur that built his fortune by himself. And not only that, but that their hard work will trickle down to us via good jobs to provide us with the opportunity to do the same thing. But the reality is they are greedy bastards that do not give one f*ck about anything other than their own wealth and power while expecting us to pay for the very infrastructure that they exploit to further their own ends.
