The Own-It-All Society

July 22nd, 2013

A follow-up to Glenn’s Favorite Ism, inspired by Obama seeks a new focus on the economy (Scott Wilson, Washington Post 7/22/13 page A2).

 

“In Washington, they call this the Ownership Society. But in our past there has been another term for it–Social Darwinism–every man or woman for him or herself.” — President Obama in 2005

 

Republicans and those they serve

(Who think they even more money deserve)

Don’t want an Ownership Society:

They want an Own-It-All Society.

 

No matter how much they have, the greedy want more,

And that’s what they support Republicans for.

If middle class incomes continue to stagnate or fall,

Soon the point-one percent will own it all.

***

Here’s an excellent dramatization of the extent to which wealth has become super-concentrated in America.
