Well, That's All Right, Then

As Ludwig von Mises wrote to Ayn Rand: “You have the courage to tell the masses what no politician told them: you are inferior and all the improvements in your conditions which you simply take for granted you owe to the effort of men who are better than you.”
 H/T Corey Robin; also for a dynamite meditation on an old Underbelly favorite--the multiple and conflicting reasons for wanting to have money--go here.

Re Luddie's point--I used to puzzle over that issue during my smoke breaks from my job as a dishwasher at Avis Baroody's Howard Johnson in The Weirs Beach, NH.  Nice to have it straightened out.
