Bill Maher calls out billionaires and other people in privileged positions for something they've been doing way too much of lately: complain about how oppressed they are. Sure, when you're used to having anything you want, having slightly less than that might feel like oppression, but they ought to remember they can still spend their way through just about any mountain that most of us have to climb over.
But if billionaires need something to whine about, Maher gives them an idea worth getting worked up over.
One has to wonder, at what point do we get a critical mass of outrage over the sheer amount of wealth some people have? Warren Buffett and Bill Gates get a pass, because of their extensive charitable contributions and encouragement to other billionaires to do the same, but they are just two billionaires among many.
It is neither acceptable or sustainable that some people have more wealth than any one person could spend if they were trying, and others don't have enough to eat.
