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.
