Opulence. Wealth. Affluence. Power. These are the things that go hand in hand with the rich. In a world where we sometimes like to vilify the successful and the rich, we really end up just hurting ourselves.
The rich have a responsibility to society. Society looks up to the rich to get a glimpse of what they could achieve if they work really hard and achieve their goals. This is fact. However, the rich do tend to flaunt it in ways that are more appropriate.
The rich need to set an example. It's good to enjoy your money, your success but don't suddenly do things that make society go, "huh??" That is quite an important point there. However, when you rub it in the poor people's faces, you are bound to get a lot of backlash.
In our current global state where the rich continue to get richer and the poor get even more punished, it won't take long for a big movement to happen. Movements such as OWS (Occupy Wall Street) are there to try to raise awareness of the increasing social and wealth polarization not only in the USA but all over the world.
When the world's rich controls almost all of the global resources, there is always bound to be a problem. Take America for example, a staggering 1-2% of the extremely rich control > 49% of America's wealth. How does that even give the rest of the middle class and other echelons of society a chance to ever get up in the world?
