According to Townhall,

Few publicly begrudge the incomes of professional athletes, actors and high tech entrepreneurs. The greedy one percenters we hear about are invariably…those doing jobs whose value is difficult to grasp because the contribution is abstract.

There are nations that…send[t] them out into the fields either to be killed or do subsistence farming. Those economies imploded, so apparently [they]…actually do perform something useful and hard to replicate.
