LINK The growing divide between the haves and the have-nots, in one stunning chart - MarketWatch

I think the actual wall that is being built is between the Haves and the Have Nots, between the rich and the poor, between us and them. How better to conquer than to divide.

The graph shows an individual's contribution to the aggregate income of everyone in the USA and how the lower 50% of earners are contributing less now than in the recent past. Those lower income earners better start getting on the ball. The graph doesn't mean much more than that. If one is concerned about the income of the lower 50% of earners, then a more important graph would show how much their income has changed over that period, adjusted for inflation.

The culture of greed has reached at least temporary dominance. It is time to act to stop them.

This is one of the greatest problems our society faces. So many vote against their own interests due to delusional beliefs in "the American Dream" and how every individual has the same opportunities to advance as anyone else. Simply not true. tRump has been correct about one thing (though not in the way his followers are led to believe): the system is rigged.

True. The deluded voted for the creed of greed, trickle down BS.

Yep.

History teaches us that when that divide becomes to large there will be a revolution of some kind. I hate to think it would happen in the USA but if things do not come around I do not see any reason why our people would act any different!

@slydr68 Isn't that the truth and what a shame.
