Who is a traitor?

I call him a traitor who, having been educated, nursed in the luxury by the heart's blood of the downtrodden millions of toiling poor, never even takes a thought for them (VIII. 329 - 30). So long as the millions live in hunger and ignorance, I hold every man traitor who, having been educated at their expense, pays not the least heed to them! I call those men who strut about in their finery, having got all their money by grinding the poor, wretches, so long as they do not do anything for those two hundred millions who are now no better than hungry savages! (V. 58).
