Just as Global Warming has been recast as a politically more saleable Climate Change, Poverty is now being recast as Income Inequality for the same purpose. With more people escaping poverty than ever before, it has become necessary to find new ways of pushing for a worldwide Socialist agenda. What, exactly, is wrong with "income inequality?" It is popularly reported that a tiny percentage of people own a large percentage of the world's wealth, but so what? Much of that wealth is ownership of companies they started which have contributed immensely to the world's economy. Just who would be better off if Jeff Bezos didn't own all that Amazon stock? Is income inequality really a problem in itself? Or is it just a way of appealing to people's baser emotions (e.g., envy) for political purposes?
