This is not true. Most of the economic elite were born into it... and the wealth they acquire is stolen from the middle class. That isn't just a turn-of-phrase either.
I've found that it is just as much an ingrained belief in some different parts that the wealthy are greedy and that they don't
deserve what they have, regardless of how they came to acquire it.
