The Rich are Evil

Rich people never use their money for good purposes.

Name Space:
Page Type:
It's not easy being rich.

Sure, you have a home big enough to get lost in, an army of servants at your beck and call... heck, you might even have a wall of portraits depicting your ancestors who were, as luck would have it, also rich. And if someone says something bad about you, you can always bribe them to keep quiet.

But there's a problem. People don't love you. And with all the money you have, there's no reason why they shouldn't. Oh wait -- yes there is. You're evil.

And honestly, there's no real reason for you to be that way. You could become a philanthropist and give a big chunk of your money to the poor. You could become a billionaire playboy and use your money to pick up chicks by day, while ridding the city of its criminals at night. Heck, you could even use your cash to save countless innocents from a terrible fate.

But for some reason, that's just not your style. You might be the type who hates rules and breaks them simply because you have the money to do so. Or it might be the money itself that makes you evil, because poor people are automatically nicer than rich people.

Whatever the case, there is no hope for you. You are rich, and you are evil.

    Indexes: Rich People and Evil Tropes.
    The page The Rich Are Evil was created without going through YKTTW, and has no examples. These, along with feedback on description style (I copy-pasted what the original creator did), are needed. I'll be adding related tropes shortly.

    Scratch that; it's a duplicate of Aristocrats Are Evil. Discarding, and cutlisting the existing page.
