The rich are different from you and me. For one thing, they’re rich.
Among the super-rich, though, there tends to be a peculiar sense that their net worth is a testament to their true worthiness.

This leads to one specific difference between them and us: Most of us favor a wealth tax to help bridge the gaping chasm of inequality in our society; the rich do not.
