The middle class as the new aristocracy

As long as inequality rules, reason will be absent from our politics; without reason, none of our other issues can be solved. It’s a world-historical problem.

Great piece in The Atlantic regarding the 9.9% as the new aristocracy. This does not apply only to the US, but to any place with little-to-no safety net or huge inequality (cough cough, Romania, Bulgaria, and a few other EU states)
