Watch this video!

This video shows very clearly that wealth is very unevenly distributed in America. It also shows that most people are living in a fools paradise, assuming that the country is much more like it should be than it actually is.

The video does not show that rich people are different than the rest of us in many undesirable ways. It does not show that countries with a distribution of wealth like our current one do not progress well economically.

If Americans knew how bad the distribution really is, and if they knew how bad that will be for the future of our children, then maybe they would rise up and make the Congress pass laws to correct the situation, closing loopholes in the tax laws and making taxes more progressive, strengthening unions, etc.
