Opinion | The shadow of the ultra-rich darkens everyone’s sky

(www.thespec.com)

Americans are trained to kid themselves that if they pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, they'll become rich. Imagine the rage when it doesn't happen. Maybe they voted for Trump out of self-hate.

Unlike Americans, Canadians are not raised to feel ashamed of failing to become ludicrously rich, hugely housed and abrasive as all hell. We're realistic. I do hope this doesn't change.

Someone sounds rather bitter about life.
