All your stats and predictions and theories are geared to ignore the dystopia of modern capitalism.

You see dystopia, I see high standards of living. It (should) tell you something that the primary health problems of the poor in the West are all obesity related diseases.

Your solutions for the wealth gap are the same old supply side lies the poor and working poor have been fed for 30 years. You are not a voice of reason. You are a propagandist.

Let’s summarize:

  1. I’ve proven to you statistically that inequality is not correlated with tax policy.
  2. I’ve agreed with you, however, that inequality is a problem, and posed to you the actual cause, which you’ve acknowledged made sense.
  3. The above IS “reason”. The problem you’ve having is that that the facts pull the rug out from under your preferred ideological solution.

If the facts change, I’ll change my mind.
