letters and counting!
Hello Joe! whatta ya know? Do you know that meta-analysis has found that inequity causes an increase in crime, mental disorders, physical illness, and misery? Of course most of these problems are in the lower classes, but these fabulous prizes also get won by the rich as well, and the longer and more inequitable a society is the more of those prizes go to the rich?? Did you know, Joe, that the more inequity a society has the less creative it is and the less wonderful new gadgets and inventions are created? Will stealing a trillion dollars form the American people, keep your veins from clogging, or your heart form stopping due to the stress of living in this society that you made so stressful? Are you happy with the idea of never being able to leave your home because of the starving masses desperate to survive, because of the situation you helped create? You are an interesting guy!! I wonder why anyone would choose to create such a future. Are you a masochist??? Here’s some reading to help you understand the consequences of your actions. Did you go to kindergarten; just wondering. http://www.alternativeinsight.com/Health_Problem.html Inequality in Industrialized Nations Professors Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett, from the Equality Trust, produced an informative lecture video titled Inequality: The enemy between us? based on their recently released book, The Spirit Level; Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better (Penguin, March 2009) Sincerely, your friend hoping you find a better outlet for your problems than trying to take human society back to the dark ages, Lara
