So, even if they do 10 times the work and twice the hours they are making considerably more then 10 times the income:

If what you say is true, it explains why things are so bad. Elitists who don't think anyone else can do what they are doing so poorly. You don't get 100% when your putting in the hours and workload your talking about. Especially if the job is thinking, planning, and creative.

The US is actually a republic, not a democracy. Our system is designed for us to have a say that is tempered by the opinions of, hopefully, more knowledgeable and intelligent people.
Whether it actually works that way, and whether the system is a paternalistic trap set up by slaveholders, is up for debate.

Apparently that is and has been the plan of the oligarchy for quite a while -

Ask me how I know you've never read "The Jungle" by Upton Sincliar, published in 1906, well before any Clinton held power.

As a well read person of reasonable intelligence, it's offensive to see the majority idiot class acting like a problem they have been willfully ignoring is something they can turn around and solve with no regard to the greater repercussions.

I'm not certain it takes a certain type of logic, it just takes logic. You have to be able to follow a logical path and realize that yes, 2+2 = 4, but if that line says 'if 2+2=4 then 4 = 5', you are dealing with 5.
I think that too many people think they are using logic, when they are really using a huge stack of assumptions, with a dash of logic. 90% of the time, that's good enough for most people.
It does lead to the crap we've been hearing from the GOP candidates, and constituents, but it's not directly harmful enough to self correct.
Teaching code wouldn't be necessary if we did a better job teaching logic.
