This is what the exploiters want, us to stab each other in the back over fear of losing something. Fear that part of my paycheck is going to somebody else that doesn't deserve it, rather than the possibility that it benefits us all greater than our individual input would otherwise.
But instead we toil in a loop where the middle class has so little money to spend we can't kickstart the economy through demand. Inequality is not just unfair it breaks the economy for everyone but the top 20%.
Our real problems are jobs, inefficient healthcare and a stalled economy. The debt is just numbers, people without a job are actually suffering every day.
