Why is it that this apparently makes no impression on all those people in the tiny little blue sliver above? This graph doesn't depict a deep, dark secret. And it doesn't depict new news. Check here, here, and here, for example. And, as far as I can tell, nobody in American politics talks about this, much less is outraged by it. We're so brainwashed by the bogus American dream nonsense--you know, work hard and you will succeed; everybody has an equal chance to get rich, etc.--that we can't recognize a the rape the super rich are perpetrating right before our eyes. So the picture may be worth a lot more than a thousand words. But don't plan on hearing any of them.
