Grassroots, instead of whining about how the majority of people in the world are being screwed over by the few, ask yourself why this might be happening.

We live in a world where money flows to those who contribute something to society. It may not seem fair to you, but that is how the world works.

Furthermore, trying to solve income disparity simply by taking more from the rich and giving it to the poor has never worked.

All that happens when this is attempted, is that inflation takes away what the government tries to give. This was the case when the US gov't recently handed out rebate checks to people who don't pay income tax.

As theses checks went out, goods purchased disproportionately by poor people went up in tandem, offsetting any positive benefit the free money was supposed to have.

I guarantee you that if the US government sends out more checks to undeserving people, you will once again see an increase in basic staples like food and gas.

This is simply a matter of balance and since governments are not immune to universal laws of nature, the result will always be the same.

So keep whining about how hard done by people are, but keep in mind that it's their own fault. They rely too much on handouts and don't contribute enough to society.

If they start thinking of others first, they will start to see their own lot in life improve.
