Roger, again I have to violate my decision NOT to participate in your diatribes... This is a very nice 'politically correct' sounding variant of an untrue maxim. People do not 'H A T E ' the rich: they may admire, envy, detest, fight against, disagree with, obey, lick-ass, etc., but not 'hate' - and you are wrong - with some ostentational ignorance - about the term, to call it a new (form of) *racism*. Racism has a clandestine, but not ignorable false mental characteristic: to FEEL superior to the 'hated race'. No such thing in the ordinary people vs. the self-pretended superheroes of the super-rich. They have circumstances available giving the idea of being above the law and above the rest of the (lower???) society. There are exceptions, I am referring to the 'average plutocrat'. They have wealthy upbringing with best education-potential, best health care and activities developing them better than most of the 'lower' class kids, - with ancestors leaving wealth (sometimes by killing off their competitors) and possessions to secure a wealthy start-up. Not comparable to a 'boondox-kid' or even a poor city-kid with malnutrition, educational deficiencies, gang-influence etc. So - no matter how nice your maxim sounds: I reject it.
