“One of the little probed mysteries of social history is society's hostility to its greatest benefactors: the producers of wealth -- the people who have excelled in creating wealth have been the victims of some of society's greatest brutality....the Holocaust of Jews, in Russia the pogroms of kulaks and Jews, the Redguard Rampages against the productive in Uganda. The bodies pile up in the world's perennial struggle to rid itself of the menace of riches." - George Gilder, Wealth and Poverty: A New Edition for the Twenty-First Century (2012)
