Why is it that we as a society tend to view the wealthy in a negative manner? I've been accused by others of coming from a well to do family and my initial reaction is a sudden burst of "oh god no, no way... are you kidding me? Not me." I've seen the same reaction from other people as well. Why is wealthiness looked down upon? Shouldn't a hardworking person be looked up to? What's everyone else's take on the matter?
