But we shouldn't blame the rich?

You just described a situation where the rich literally engineered our laws to enrich themselves, but they are blameless for using those very laws to enrich themselves?
And then they use their money to get people to write articles and tell stories and make movies about how wonderful they are and how smart and how brave and how morally upstanding and good-hearted they all are for having all that money! Success all around! Everybody wins! Right?
