  1. Negative perception of the protesters (eg., "Occupy Wall Street)
  2. Aspiration to become upper class as opposed to resent those citizens
  3. A disproportionate influence (by the upper class) in the political arena (lobbying) and in the media
  4. Ever-increasing amounts of consumer and household debt helping to finance an American consumer lifestyle
