My Love Affair with America: The Cautionary Tale of a Cheerful Conservative
View details at Amazon.com
 

Far from being grateful defenders of the system from which they have profited, the children of capitalism tend to turn against it. Thus it is that radicals and even revolutionaries almost always stem from the middle and upper classes rather than the working class or the poor, in whose name they presume to speak. And thus it is that what is called liberalism today is increasingly identified with the more, rather than the less, prosperous sectors of American society.

1981 - from an essay in Harvard Business Review
