Comment on The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap

We have a profound love for the weak and poor, and a corresponding disdain for the corrupt rich and successful, and we are removing the bureaucracy and building a foundation to act for good.

On the board, while getting Vit D in the yard.

In the Introduction of Matt Taibbi's 2014 The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap, I noticed this phrasing:

We have a profound hatred of the weak and poor, and a corresponding groveling terror before the rich and successful, and we are building a bureaucracy to match those feelings.

However, I'd like to propose that we are, and must adjust to do the following:

We have a profound love for the weak and poor, and a corresponding disdain for the corrupt rich and successful, and we are removing the bureaucracy and building a foundation to act for good.

Thankful to many like Matt and Glenn and Tim and James who are doing and have done powerful and difficult journalistic work for years and decades.
