This is going to be an easy thread to fill.

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Blind Boy Fuller sings, "Baby, for my dinner, I want ham and eggs... And for my supper, mama, 1 want to feel your legs," which I'm sure is something we can all relate to...
