Choosing the social injustice so prevalent in America right now that is the most disgusting and discouraging to me is not difficult–it is the U.S. income inequality. Only two other “advance economy” countries have higher ratings than we do according to the CIA World Factbook. What makes this fact abysmal is the way the super rich use their wealth to manipulate government spending, laws, tax advantages, even wars.
Let us use the grassroots power we have to demand an end to this unjust, bordering on illegal, disruption of the democratic process. Tomorrow I’ll think of some specific ways to take back our power.
