Nick Hanauer, Censored by TED

I don't believe in the middle-class, it is a fiction created to help keep you from realizing the truth. There are only two classes, the worker class, and the capital class. The "middle-class" is a political illusion, a myth that workers can become capitalists by investing in capital, like their home mortgage & stocks, and become independently wealthy, retire in luxury, and pass their wealth on to their offspring.

BREAKING: You Know That TED Talk You Weren't Supposed To See? Here It Is. Nick Hanauer, self-described "super-rich" entrepreneur, gave a pretty compelling TED Talk about how the middle class—not the super-rich—are the real job creators. But TED, which has released over 100 different political videos in the past, thought this one was too partisan and chose not to release it. We didn't notice any flaming partisanship in it. We normally love TED, and were surprised they didn't think this talk was TEDworthy. Under pressure from the Internets, TED finally relented and released the video. Watch it and decide for yourself if it's really all that controversial to say that the "super-rich are not job creators." Then share it like crazy.
