The distortion of reality is based on a story of two economies: one consists of people who have so much money it's essentially meaningless, the other of people who have so little money it dictates every single thought and action in their lives. The former can donate $1000 to a joke Kickstarter for potato salad, the latter can't afford potato salad.
In the spirit of scientific accuracy, I'd like to point out that the "ten percent of our brains" thing is a straight-up myth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_percent_of_brain_myth
In other words, we like to think, given the evidence of how horrible we are, that our brains are underutilized and we'd be so much better if only we could perform at our "full potential." The terrible fact is that we already are at our full potential. There is no room for improvement. This is the best we can do, and the existence of this myth just shows that we exercise our limited capabilities to the utmost by lying to ourselves about that fact.
