One day, the world is going to use up its natural resources, and the earth will no longer be able to sustain us. Undoubtedly, the rich, the wealthy, the elites will find a way to flee--to an orbiting space station or another planet, or something. The poor and down-trodden will, of course, be left here.
And on that day, I guarantee you, someone will claim justification and say "the meek have inherited the earth." And they will be proud.
