I send my compliments to Mark Suster on Putting Tom Perkins Comments into Context.
Perkins opened his Wall Street Journal letter Progressive Kristallnacht Coming? with the headline:
I would call attention to the parallels of Nazi Germany to its war on its “one percent,” namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the ‘rich.’
Boorish entitlement has never worked, at least not in public. It never ceases to amaze me that many well educated successful people can stoop to third grade name calling and be so insular and oblivious to the rest of the world.
Suster, a self-professed one percenter himself, called the letter insensitive and tone deaf. That’s far too mild. He did a terrific job on his comprehensive post. So I’ll skip further pontification and just recommend you click on his link above.

I’m working with my friends at Business Catapult on a fundraising campaign for YouthBiz, which supports young entrepreneurs in Denver.
Make a donation to YouthBiz AND get free services worth up to $900 like the Mobile Leads Machine from Revenue Typhoon.
The campaign now features prizes for big entrepreneurs and small businesses alike. Goodies include capital formation consulting, advertising, and marketing automation services. Just contribute at the indicated donation level (a tiny fraction of the value of these services) and you get the associated items free! But hurry as prize quantities are limited .. and the fundraising campaign expires next week.
Visit the YouthBiz fundraising program to donate and receive free advertising, consulting, and marketing!
