Check out the Daily Show's Jon Stewart on Class Warfare

Not surprisingly, Jon Stewart says it better than I do. We clearly need a stronger progressive movement in this country, focusing on the reduced expectations of the two-thirds of our people with the lowest incomes. I suspect that the increasing separation of the top one percent and the top ten percent of our people by income from the rest of the population is contributing to the problems of the poor and the middle class. I also think that letting the income and wealth differentials get worse and worse is going to be bad news for the whole population and the political systems of our democracy.
