Why the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer

Contrary to what Senator Max Baucus (Democrat) recently said about the forthcoming healthcare deform that's being forced upon us:
“Too often, much of late, the last couple three years the mal-distribution of income in America is gone up way too much, the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy, and the middle income class is left behind. Wages have not kept up with increased income of the highest income in America. This legislation will have the effect of addressing that mal-distribution of income in America.”

The rich keep getting richer because they keep doing the things that make them rich. The poor keep getting poorer because they keep doing the things that make them poor. It's basic logic just like the "secret" to losing weight: eat less, exercise more. People just don't get these basics of life. It's why so many people buy into the nonsense the diet companies and politicians "feed" us. This mindset explains why this book and its philosophy make so much sense.

Everything in life is a personal choice. Where we are in life today is the exact sum of all the choices we've made up to this point.

Interestingly, information security is no different - you choose the behavior (i.e. ignoring the problem) you choose the consequence (i.e. security breach).
