Aljazeera did a short documentary last week on their show titled Fault Lines. In this broadcast they discover that the top one percent of US Americans control 40 percent of the wealth. They posit that inequality is the worst it has been in almost a century and that the gap between the rich and the poor has been drastically exponential since the 1980’s. The documentary also covers how the political donations of the richest 1% are impacting the rest of the country. This broadcast is a must watch!
By the end of it you will surely be angry. But what is the next step to this anger? In London over the past 4 days more than 1000 people have been arrested due to riots. People are burning cars, setting buildings on fire, breaking store windows and looting. The killing of a black man by London police ignited this anger.
