Now income inequality is the empowering term. It is never defined. Is it based on the same criteria as productivity inequality, or effort inequality, or innovation inequality, or dedication inequality? Who is to judge when income inequality exists? Is it Obama, the trade unions, the courts, the judges? How is it solved? Do we have arbitrary ratios established? Our country was founded and grew on the concept that income is an individual matter and not a matter of the state. The constitution does not provide for the federal government determining if the income received by an individual is fair or not.
The way Obama and the Marxist/Progressives have indicated they want it defined in the way their guru, Marx defined income inequality. Marx said no individual should receive more than he consumes and consumption is determined by the state. A family of four would have four times the needs as a person of one. Marx explained when somebody receives more than they consume, they begin to accumulate excesses. This gives them the desire to accumulate more and they begin the capital cycle and exploitation cycle all over again.
Obama and the Marxist/Progressives understand, if they use terms to promote class warfare, they can enslave the proletariat by making them a dependent class. This share the wealth mentality has always destroyed an economy and that has enabled the Marxist the control he needs to fundamentally transform a free capitalistic society to an enslaved Marxist society. The society Obama wants is an equal and conforming society and equal means that all are in poverty thus providing an avenue for the Marxist to rule. It is sad but true.
