    Constantly reminding us of the evils of America's successes. The kinds of success that contribute to economic vitality yet, shockingly, put wealth in the pockets of the "haves" and not the "have-nots".

    Very few powerful countries are conquered. They rot from within. They become rich or at least they come to have a few super rich and the many super poor. They become plutocracies. A man's wealth becomes synonymous with his worth.

    Up to now we have been lucky. We have been a plutocracy for at least a century but the plutocrats had some moral compass and really did consider the overall condition of the country.

    No more. For the past forty or so years it has been drummed into our heads that wealth is valuable for it's own sake and the wealthy owe no one anything. Not even a decent wage. We have the spectacle of immensely rich corporations and individuals who are scrambling to cut the minimum wage "to increase employment".

    The rich claw for ever more riches, ever higher profits as they squeeze their workers tighter.

    Makes me sick!
