This is true of every nation, but it is less true of economically freer nations. Compare North Korea (ranked last) to New Zealand or Australia (ranked 3rd and 4th). Compare Greece to the USA. It's so bad in Greece because of socialist policies that Greek mothers, unable to feed their babies, have resorted to abandoning their babies at orphanages.Originally Posted by Inis Mona
I don't see this as a problem. Bill Gates' wealth has zero bearing on my life. The top 20% of income earners now pay 80% of the income taxes. The rich are feeding the poor; the rich are providing most of the tax revenue to pay for food stamps and childcare and Obamacare.The differences between the poor and the rich are growing each day, we feed on the weak and the weak work for us, only to be able to at least have an access to basic needs such as water or food.
I would argue that companies can't afford to pay higher wages because the Government forces them to pay such high taxes.Slavery has no place in modern democracy, however yet it is still present by every point you look at the sitation we all have to face.
