Do not intervene
Yes, do intervene
Well, actually the countries with the least income inequality are the ones that are stealing from the wealthy and giving to the poor. And of course, it isn't like Denmark is a world powerhouse, they really don't contribute much of anything to the world.No income inequality has everything to do with education and access to said education and the ability of society to take of people in need (yes healthcare costs among other things). The countries with least income inequality all have one thing in common... free or very low cost education that means where you were born and in what income class has very little to do with your future. In places like Denmark, Sweden and so on, being born in a poor ghetto, on a farm or to the richest 1% families has very little impact on what you do with your life. If you have the intelligence and the grades, then you can become anything you want and the cost aspect has been removed. That means the bricklayers son, who traditionally would get remain in the same type of job as his father and his fathers father, has the ability to climb the economic and social ladder. It works, my family and most Danes are clear examples of this.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
So you move to a lame attempt to insult a person based on his country and belittling it? Pathetic. You have no idea what Denmark and Danes have contributed to the world over history... and it is considerable relative to the population size.And of course, it isn't like Denmark is a world powerhouse, they really don't contribute much of anything to the world.
No, it's PERCEIVED inequality. It's been pointed out many times in this thread that much of the supposed inequality is EARNED by the people who are not "equal". If people want to be more "equal", they need to be responsible and work harder. The people who tend to fail are the people who tend to fail of their own accord and the loony toon liberals keep pretending that everyone ought to have the same thing just because they bothered to wake up in the morning, not because they actually earned it.Seems like the thread concerns inequality of a population, ie should a govt be involved in minimizing inequality to raise the living standard for the largest number.
No, I state the facts, if you get offended by the facts, that's your problem. The fact that you couldn't present anything useful that they've done in recent history is quite telling. If there was anything to be proud of, you'd have leapt at the chance.So you move to a lame attempt to insult a person based on his country and belittling it? Pathetic.
