The Guys in the 1% Brought This On
At the risk of being pedantic, let me point out that "99% versus 1%" is not a class analysis, not in any respectable sociological sense. Shave off the top 1% and you're still left with some awfully steep divides of wealth, income and opportunity. The 99% includes the ordinary rich, for example, who may lack private jets but do have swimming pools and second homes. It also includes the immigrant workers who mow their lawns and clean their houses for them. This is not a class. It's just the default category left after you subtract the billionaires.
