One definition of income inequality is the difference between individuals or populations in the distribution of their assets, wealth, or income. The term typically refers to inequality among individuals and groups within a society, but can also refer to inequality among countries. What then would equality be? I could not find a definition for income equality so I searched for a definition of equality. Equality means that state of being the same in quantity or measure or value or status.
Inequality means one having more or the other having less. Equality means both have the same. Marx explained inequality literally was bad and stated society must have true income equality. He also explained to arrive at true income equality; income would be based on needs of a family and not on production in anyway. In fact he stated the proceeds of labor should be shared fairly (meaning on needs) with all, whether working or not.
We know Obama and his fellow Marxist/Progressives will not be as daring as was Marx in defining income inequality and equality, but when forget the words and look at the actions, it becomes very clear Obama and Marx are speaking as one.
