Treat the rich as you would have to a normal person. His wealth is his luck and fortune. Never get overwhelmed with jealousy or hatred because he did better than yourself. Self respect and respect to another human being is very important.
A man can choose the way he wants to live - rich and splurge it or rich but remain humble.
There was once and elderly man dressed up simple (singlets and shorts) and uses a bicycle to move about. One day he  cycled to a Datsun(now Nissan) car showroom and was browsing at some new cars. The salesman saw him and showed him a very nasty face. The saleman was rude and told the old man that he would not be able to afford even the cheapest car in the showroom. As expected the old man was chased away.
The very next day the salesman received a sack letter from the management citing him unsuitable to be in his profession. The old man that he chased away the day before happened to be the owner of the building and the owner of the car showroom as well. The salesman learnt from that day that one should never be prejudice of any visitor irrespective of how well or how bad the customer dresses.

That's a cute story but we also have to question how the rich got that way.
Did they work 10,000 times longer and harder than the majority of us?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

NO...no!

Question: How did the most of the present rich mainland Chinese make their wealth from 1980s?

Most of rich Chinese got their wealth from price machinism in 1990s (价格双轨制,例如康华事件) and the privatization of all of below-provincial-government-owned companies and assets (省级以下包括乡镇企业通过股份制改造,资产运营,管理层持股等等方式的私有化; 土地房屋矿产等资产私有化).

Don't forget that almost all of weath were owned by party and government before economic reform of 1980s. In the reform, party and government distrubted a large amount to a small number of Chinese.

Why did ordinary Chinese accept those unfair and unjust wealth distribution made by the Party and the government?
Beause ordinary Chinese trusted Deng Xiaoping's words: "Party and government let a small number of Chinese rich first. Later let those rich Chinese help the rest of Chinese." But after those Chinese rich first, they choose to throw away mainalnd China's citizenship; they choose to flaut their wealth. These trend hurt the trusts of ordinary Chinese the most.

Sound fair...
well much fairer than how the Anglos got their wealth innit?
Invasion, murder, massc ...


Sound fair?
From the prespective of the whole world, U.S.A is evil.
Chinese don't accumulate their wealth by robbing other nations.
U.S.A are accumulating their wealth by robbing other nations (such as through global U.S. dollar currency system).

From the perspective of inside the nation, U.S. government treats its own citizens more fair than China's government.
A small number of mainland Chinese are robbing wealth from the rest of large amount of Chinese. And China's situation is much worse  than U.S.A.

You're thick!

5% of Americans owns 95% the USA stoopid!

Don't forget that the changing speed of wealth distribution of the past 30 years.

Mainland China is much worse than U.S.A, let alone mainland China named itself as a socialist country.
