UNEQUAL EQUALITY

EQUALITY
Johann Wagener 8-25-13

Sounds nice! Just like justice for all, or pursuit of happiness but rings hollow in a society that is built on a pyramid scheme. Where the few on the top live off the many on the bottom.

Those at the top think nothing about buying a $75,000 wrist watch while someone on the bottom needs to feed, clothe, and house a family of 4 for a year on half that much. There's something terribly wrong in a society where 1% of the population devours and hoards 45% of what that society as a whole produces.

Only a fool or someone living in a dream world would consider that to be a definition of "equality."


We'd All Be Much Wealthier If We Acted Like a Society—Instead We Prop Up the Private Wealth of a Small Number of Elites
