Consider the source,
Most of today's (and yesterday's) anti-Capitalists are unique. You'll find upon research that most of the people who demand government programs for "the poor" are fairly wealthy! For instance if Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Michael Moore, and Al Franken are so concerned for the poor they shouldn't wait on George Bush to "end poverty"; they should be out there using their amassed wealth to help the poor. The same was true for the Marxists of yesterday who often raised their voice to help the poor; the one's who were activists and politicians were wealthy from the get go; they used the help the poor slogan to achieve more wealth for themselves with little genuine concern for the poor. Karl Marx himself was wealthy at the time he wrote The Communist Manifesto. I am glad to see more people these days question the legitimacy of those who claim to be "for the little guy". The next time you hear a do-gooder's sermon on poverty in America, consider the source.
