The Rich Have Been Good To Us

The rich who invested in the industrial revolution are the good guys in history. They made themselves and all of us richer.

After all what King in 1800 had automatically controlled central air? Or even a wall air conditioner?

What King in 1800 could travel 10,000 miles in a day?

What King in 1800 could see events live half a planet away?

What King in 1800 could take a photograph and send it anywhere in the world in seconds?

The rich have been good to us.
