Over the last month, people have been talking about wealth inequality like never before. Warren Buffet took to the pages of the New York Times to argue that it was immoral that as one of the country’s richest men, he should be taxed at a lower rate than his secretary. Not long after, the Occupy Wall Street movement and its offshoots took up his rallying cry, bringing unprecedented attention to the fact that 1% of Americans own 38% of the country’s wealth. But despite dire warnings from the right that class war is around the corner, these protests are not simply the poor and middle class attacking the rich. Many people with wealth have taken to the streets to express their solidarity with the 99% and to ask to pay their fair share to make the US a more just nation.
