Success - request sent close

I wonder if he realizes that the successful people already carry a huge burden to support the growing number of unsuccessful people that bring little or nothing to the table themselves. Does anyone think that the ability to get a ride from the efforts of others is admirable and leads to fostering an environment where people have the incentive to make a difference in the lives of others?

I'm tired of hearing how successful people should be treated as thieves and told to be ashamed of themselves for making a good living for their families and supporting so many others.
