Opportunity in a Dynamic Environment

Strategy works best in dynamic environments. Open, unregulated, free enterprise creates most wealth for everyone, giving people more and more choices, which requires more and more use of strategy. There is no limit on what you can achieve in places like America. There is an infinite amount of space at the very top. The proof? Look at the Forbes 400:
Indeed, of the 1982 members of the first Forbes 400, only 32 remain today. Far from a country where only the rich get richer, the wealthy in the US are very much a moving target. While there are 74 Forbes 400 members who inherited their entire fortune, 270 members are entirely self-made. Though many attended Harvard, Yale and Princeton, there are countless stories within of high school and college dropouts, not to mention others who grew up extremely poor. Politicians who regularly engage in class warfare would do well to keep the Forbes 400 out of the hands of their constituents, because it makes a mockery of the kind "Two Americas" rhetoric suggesting the existence of a glass ceiling that keeps hard workers at the bottom of the economic ladder. To read the Forbes 400 is to know with surety that the U.S. is still very much the land of opportunity.
The "problem" with a dynamic society for the elites is that it is impossible to control. The elite want a class society where everyone knows their place. They don't hate the "rich" per se because most of them are the rich and many of those that aren't are financie by the rich (like Soros). What they hate is uncontrolled opportunity, whose innovations threaten to displace them and their hold on power.
