Can Inequality Only Be Fixed By War, Revolution or Plague?
On this episode of the Christopher Scott Talk Show Podcast:
Back in 2013 former president Barack Obama was giving a speech at an event sponsored by the Center for American Progress. In that speech he claimed that income inequality is the defining challenge of our time.
Not world hunger, not world peace, not eradicating disease, not ending nuclear proliferation, INCOME INEQUALITY. What does that really mean? It can only mean a couple of different things really at it's core it can only mean 2 things.
One, that some people have unfairly massed wealth and that the playing field needs to be made more fair.
Or two, that there are people that have FAILRY gained wealth and that somehow you are entitled to some of that money.
If rich people have unfairly gained wealth it's either because of the actions or inaction's of government. If rich people have FAIRLY gained wealth, meaning they worked for it or earned it, why would anyone else be entitled to it?
So hit the play button!
