i had to remind someone of this today, an American like me who was complaining about the rich get richer and all that.  I mean, yeah, American’s an oligarchy, not a democracy. We were supposed to be “better than all that”.

But really, we have hardly anything to complain about, money-wise.

Where you’re born, well, that’s a bit of an accident really or providence, depending on how you look at things.

Some things have improved but other things got worse. I’d say that socially things have never changed. in any society. A few powerful on top with everybody else making do.

The only exceptions are smaller communities and countries. They can manage a social structure of wealthier citizens, which is basically what you’re talking about.
