Some will see it as a manifesto for modern classist revolution or a call to action against global warming so to avoid the wrath of another ice age.The rich have nothing to do but relax, party, and ingest all the food and drugs they want.
And the poor have nothing to do except eat the same sludge and stew in their own filth and misery.
He makes them that way in part to relax your brain so he can poke at it with more difficult questions at the end.
