There's an old saying. If you don't want someone to join a crowd, you ask them, "If everyone were jumping off of a cliff, would you?" Well, I have. So my answer would be "Yes". True story.

The World Has 200 More Billionaires in 2013 than in 2012

So, Forbes just released it's richest people in the world list! Turns out that there are 200 more billionaires in 2013 than there were 2012! Way to go, world!
So if there were 200 more billionaires, then that must mean that everybody got richer, right? If the economy is booming so well as to support two hundred new billionaires, then than means the economy was better for everybody, right?
...Wait. You mean it's not? You mean we're in a recession, that the American minimum wage has been grossly behind the rate of inflation, and that unemployment is still high? Well that certainly doesn't make sense. How would those two hundred billionaires get rich if people are not spending more money?
Oh, are you saying that those two hundred people became billionaires because of the world being in a recession? You mean they've set up a system so that they can actually benefit from people being kept down?
Well then, go fuck yourself, world!
