Reading through the comments demonstrates something about the personality of computer programmer types. They believe they are smarter and better than everyone else, and therefore on account of libertarian economic theory in which smart people create value and value creators are always rewarded, they have nothing to worry about. For some reason, nearly all computer programmer types buy into libertarianism and they all think they are like Howard Roark.I have known a lot of programmers (I'm related to one). This is 100% true. It also explains why so many programmers like to shoot guns.
This is a pretty interesting post, if you're in Tech.
