In 2010 the top 1% of the US population owned 42.1% of financial (non‐home) wealth; the next 4% owned 30% of financial wealth; the next 15% owned 23.5% of financial wealth (totaling 95.6% for the top 20% combined); the bottom 80% of the population owned 4.7% of financial wealth.

In 2016 the richest 8 people controlled more wealth than 3.6 billion people. (It was 388 people in 2010 and 80 people in 2014.)

What this country should be leaning towards is not Socialism, but a Social Democracy: Which is a political, social and economic doctrine that supports economic and social ideologies promoting social justice within a framework of a sensible liberal democratic policy, but supported by a capitalistic economy, which is extremely better than what we have now: Which is…A plutocracy: A society that is ruled or controlled by people of great wealth or income.

Gandolf I know all to well. I’m a chronic pain patient. I have genetic degenerative disk disease, have undergone four spinal fusions then got hit on my Harley by a hit and run driver. I was doing 70 mph when I crashed and had a bandana for a helmet. (From the top down) broke my collar bone, seven ribs one of which punctured my left lung and all ribs were broken in at least three pieces, broke my left tib/fib in six places and broke my right wrist in six places. Rough slide down I-10! Drug laws, like the moronic liquor laws here in Texas are based on what Chirtians who don’t have pain issues but don’t want anyone to accidentally feel good from the medication they use.
