An Adam Smith quote for supporters of Basic Income

"All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind." —Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations

And today's related news article: For the Wealthiest Political Donors, It Was a Very Good Year - Bloomberg Politics: "Three of the country's wealthiest political contributors each saw their net worth grow in 2014 by more than $3.7 billion, the entire cost of the midterm elections." Fans of Democrats should be happy that two of them support Democrats, or as Adam Smith might have called them, the left wing of the masters of mankind.
