My considered opinion: if you're a billionaire, you're a horrible human being. There's no excuse.

@lightweight b-b-but what if they worked like really really hard to get all that money??? don't they deserve it????? how could you be so cruel regarding billionaires...

@brown121407 heh heh. Most people work pretty hard for minimum wage, too... A $billion is a market distortion. In order of likelihood, it's the rest of dirty dealing, exploitation, unfair advantage, or dumb luck. No one "deserves" a $billion. The closest to an "honest" $billionaire I can think of is JK Rowling... and look at what she's done to *actively avoid* being a billionaire. A lesson there for other billionaires.
