"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Keep being convinced that killing your own is a way out of poverty and the 1% will have more and more. Economic inequality can only be sustained if the "have nots" are kept at a manageable level.
If you don't believe this than you are ignorant of economics.
1% ( a small sliver of people.) owning 99% (1 more percent and they would practically own you and all of your belongings too, in a sense.) of the wealth. And you are not moved by that huh? Amazing!
