Must See

This is a video that one should watch about the distribution of wealth in the USA.  It doesn't condemn anyone.  It just shows what people's view of reality is compared to the real economic situation.

Thanks to Bubba for finding this.

"Reality is not what we think it is." That's for sure. I've shared the video on social media hoping to open at least one eye or two.

Interesting quote: "Indeed, the widening gap between rich and poor and the disappearance of a middle class is widely accepted as one of the prime explanations for the fall of the Roman Empire."

Many historians have drawn parallels of what is going on in the US and what led to the downfall of the Roman Empire. Such things as political corruption; conflict between the senate and the emperor; on-going wars and military spending; a failing economy; unemployment; a decline in morality, ethics and values; natural disasters; trade deficits; inflation.
