I just watched this video by YouTube user politizane–and now you have to watch it too…go on, I’ll wait.

A little eye opening? Or maybe more sobering if your eyes were already open?

As a Country we know our wealthy inequality is bad–but did you, we, really understand just how bad? Did you already knew that CEO’s get paid 380 times that of the average worker (up from 42 in 1980), or did you know that the income gains of the last few decades have flowed disproportionately to the wealthiest Americans (that one might have been obvious). But seeing it presented by politizane so starkly, and so effectively, MUST give anyone pause.

So, can we really go anywhere from here?
