bill moyers on the massive maldistribution of wealth

a while ago, i dropped this here in the hopes that it would start something… it didn’t start much.

maybe this time…

The rich have the right to buy more homes than anyone else. They have the right to buy more cars than anyone else, more gizmos than anyone else, more clothes and vacations than anyone else. But they do not have the right to buy more democracy than anyone else.

[emphasis is not mine – that’s in the original]

update (2004.06.18 23:11): this same quote appears on metafilter. hmm. maybe something will happen this time. following the lead from the comments there, i thought it worth adding this too….

Our political, financial and business class expects them to climb out of poverty on an escalator moving downward.
