The rich want a better world?

A generous billionaire is preferable to a mean one.

Why We Love to Think the Jobless Are Lazy
Mythology, narcissism, and 'raw fear' drive conceit
By Matt Cantor, Newser Staff
(Newser) – In America, we like to think that
the unemployed are to blame for their joblessness
—that, in the words of Ben Stein,
they’re “people with poor work habits and poor personalities."
But any economist will tell you that’s not true,
writes David Sirota in Salon.
The real problem: there are “five applicants
for every one job opening.”
So why do we keep believing the jobless are lazy—
that, in essence, "15 million jobless Americans
are George Costanzas"?

the Jobless Are Lazy, R, 19.12.2010,
The loyal, the let-down,

LABOR: How Many Jobless?
Monday, Mar. 17, 1930
How many workmen were jobless throughout the land
last week not even the President of the U.S. knew.

colored more by partisan politics than by positive facts.
Senators flayed the Department of Labor
for its paltry system of gathering labor statistics.
The City of Milwaukee opened soup kitchens.
Bread lines stretched out in Brooklyn.
Manhattan's Bowery swarmed with sullen idle men.
Communists staged demonstrations
throughout the U.S. as well as abroad (see p. 21).
Though these things combined to make
the Hoover Administration acutely unemployment-conscious,
none of them answered the question: how many jobless?
