Below is a powerful demonstration of the wealth inequality in the U.S.

Draw what conclusions you may with regard to the effect this will have on the nation’s future, and even that of the world.

About Ossington

I often think but seldom share these thoughts. And if the product of my thinking is to affect anything but my own sense of satisfaction, then surely it must be shared. Here you may try to know what I believe to know.

  1. if we truly buy into the fairness doctrine then how exactly do we not have a responsibility to redistribute wealth outside of the US. Wouldn’t that be more fair? What is it about US citizenship that somehow qualifies you for wealth redistribution as opposed in Non-US citizens

    For some counterpoints, consider what I’ve written here – j.mp/WINPJA

    • Ossington says:

      I did not mean to say that inequality in the U.S. is bad, and that inequality elsewhere beyond the U.S. is simply the status quo and that’s fine.

      Rather, I view the U.S. as a part of the larger global system. Dysfunction in one shows dysfunction in the whole. Yes, there exists greater disparity and inequality in other parts of the world, but if the U.S. collapses in on itself there will be terrible consequences for progress worldwide (at least in the short term).

      Thanks for the comment.
