It's done been proven that the rich do not create jobs the bottom and
middle class create jobs if the lower and middle class don't buy the
products they make they can't hire anyone, so it's just an argument to keep
them getting richer and you getting poorer!!!

what people fail to see about the top 1% is the doctor or lawyer who spends
years studying before making any money or the tradesman who worked by
himself and did such great work that 10 years later he has 20 crews and
makes a good living. Everyone is always honed in on the end result and
never look at what it took to get there. Most wealth is first generational
meaning no trust funds, no being born to wealthy family. It means being
poor and busting your ass for years to get where you want to go. The sad
part is once you get there instead of being applauded for your sacrifices
and drive to succeed & accomplishing your goals, you get demonized and
people want to hunt you down with pitchforks. that's why the US is a joke
with its entitlement crap and me and my family will become expats and

The rich are not creating jobs they are putting the extra money in their
pockets, changes need to be made in tax credits and laws. The top 10% have
enough money that their future great grand children will never have to work
in their lives, and will be born with 3-5 mansions throughout the world
with 10-20 luxury cars, 20 penthouses in major cities, own several
$100Million dollar companies. 10-20% of their profits should go to
creating more companies owned and managed by young executives. Mandatory
minimum wage should increase to $15-$20/hr depending on your region's cost
of living. CEO's, Athletes, Actors should have a cap on their earnings of
$1M-$5Million/year with the remaining current earnings going to maintaining
environment, infrastructure and local communities. If world leaders DO NOT
FIGURE OUT how to fix our inequalities I'm afraid the military will and
that usually means war since its the only tool they have to calm the masses
and self serving profits with military investment in weapons.

Oh the wealthy 1% have earned it, they're not lazy or uneducated, they've
the best education money can buy and they've rigged the system to favor
themselves. They've made sure they're on top and intend to stay that way
by controlling the system. It's 'human nature' to screw others apparently.

This is not an unbias documentary. The guy clearly has already formed an
opinion and is pushing his agenda.

Once the rich and powerful know the truth, they will start sharing the
wealth and be a lot more humble. They will if they do not want the opposite
and if they want to be fulfilled now and forever. Being rich only last a
few years, and it is not that great. The truth and the life last forever
and it is as good as it can get all the time. page 88 of the Present

I'm sorry but Friedman destroyed Johnson here. I grew up in a very Liberal
area but it seems these types of documentaries only focus on how much the
wealth for the rich has grown yet they never touch on the fact that the
quality of life, opportunities and wealth for the poor has risen as well.
It's true that the wealth for the rich has grown at a higher proportionate
rate, but had that never happened the poor would have stayed poorer.
It's funny that Liberals never mention that fact and just seem to want to
create a perpetual dynamic of victimhood within the poverty ridden classes.
It really is the only way they can stay in power, by bringing others down
to their level of envy and jealousy to keep people that were born in
poverty further shackled into a mindset of victimhood so they keep them
complaining and dependent on Liberals instead of instilling a mindset of
perseverence and dilligence. That is immoral and Machiavellian by the
Liberals. The only ones holding the impoverished back is the Liberal
mindset of victimhood they instill on the impoverished, but that's probably
their strategy all along so as to keep the impoverished dependent on them,
for that is where their power comes from.
Generally speaking, If you work hard in 2015 America no matter what your
race or religion you will get ahead, that might not have been the case in

I want to know how the wealth gap got so large, in such a small space of
time? And, why is it only getting larger? I mean, the world has always
had rich people, but what has caused the gap to increase, on such a grand
scale? Insight from others, welcome.
