Wealth inequality is worse than it has been in a century—and it has contributed to a vicious political-economic cycle in which taxes are cut on the top, resulting in even more concentration of wealth.

Wealth inequality is worse than it has been in a century—and it has contributed to a vicious political-economic cycle in which taxes are cut on the top, resulting in even more concentration of wealth.

Elon Musk's wealth has surpassed $200 billion. It would take the median U.S. worker over 4 million years to make that much. Wealth inequality is eating this country alive. We're now in America's second Gilded Age, just like the late 19th century when a handful of robber barons monopolized the economy, kept wages down, and bribed lawmakers.

Cleaning can be a tedious chore.

Cleaning can be a tedious chore. Who has the time or energy to wipe down every kitchen appliance and bathtub once a week? Well, according to Andre Lewis, manager of Alpha Living, a green cleaning service in New York City, having a plan, moving quickly, and never going back to a room are the keys to cleaning fast — and well.

This over air transfer is 5x faster than Wi-Fi 6 can achieve.

This over air transfer is 5x faster than Wi-Fi 6 can achieve.

Intel has proclaimed that “the Wi-Fi future is here” after successfully demonstrating Wi-Fi 7 technology with partner Broadcom. In the over-the-air demos, a Wi-Fi 7 connection between an Intel Core-powered laptop and a Broadcom access point achieved a steady 5 Gbps transfer speed. This is a worthwhile upgrade versus Wi-Fi 6, which maxes out at 1 Gbps.

Why has the United States already become so heavily invested in the Russia-Ukraine war?

Why has the United States already become so heavily invested in the Russia-Ukraine war? And why has it so regularly gotten involved, in some fashion, in so many other wars on this planet since it invaded Afghanistan in 2001? Those with long memories might echo the conclusion reached more than a century ago by radical social critic Randolph Bourne that “war is the health of the state” or recall the ancient warnings of this country’s founders like James Madison that democracy dies not in darkness, but in the ghastly light thrown by too many bombs bursting in air for far too long.

Our economic model is failing a significant number of the middle class and the working class. And how we calculate the status of our economy matters.

Oligarchs of the dominate economic class in the United States continue to pour billions of dollars into the pockets of politicians. The drift towards oligarchy was propelled in 1976 with the Supreme Court’s Buckley v. Valeo decision. It continued in 1978 with the Bellotti v. Bank of Boston decision and culminated with the dreadful Citizens United v. FEC decision in 2010. Politicians were deemed legally for sale to the highest bidder.

The cruelty and greed of the super-rich shows just how detached these corporations and people are from the notion of shared prosperity

They should pay something back to the society that made their unprecedented wealth possible. And they should pay for the system of capitalism that has allowed them to get rich simply by being properly positioned to take advantage of the unregulated financial markets. But, as Charles Koch famously stated a few years back, «I want my fair share—and that's all of it.» The wealthiest Americans, especially those who hide their assets and balk at paying higher taxes, have the perfect role model.

A spectre is haunting US progressivism–the spectre of anti-intellectualism.

A spectre is haunting US progressivism–the spectre of anti-intellectualism. While once leftist politics was defined by the unification of academic theory and mass movement–the essence of praxis–it increasingly looks devoid of the intellectual structure that traditionally defined the left. The movement is now everything, the strategy and goals are nothing.

On February 1, 1941, less than 10 months before the Japanese struck Pearl Harbor and the U.S. found itself in a global war, Henry Luce, in an editorial in Life magazine (which he founded along with Time and Fortune), declared the years to come "the American Century."

China has a system that is described as socialism with Chinese characteristics.

China has a system that is described as socialism with Chinese characteristics. The USA should be described as a democracy with United States characteristics. The U.S. government often expresses the idea that its system is so desirable that leaders of other countries should model their country after it. Below are some of the outstanding features of a democracy with United States characteristics. In a democracy, the winner in an election should be the candidate who receives the most votes, preferably the majority. However, in a democracy with United States characteristics, a candidate for president, the highest office, can lose the popular vote and be the winner—the one who gains power and the office sought–as did Bush in 2000 and Trump in 2016.

In an article I published in April of 2018, titled World War III Will Be An Economic War, I outlined a number of factors that portend a large scale conflict between East and West and why this war would be mainly economic in nature

In an article I published in April of 2018, titled World War III Will Be An Economic War, I outlined a number of factors that portend a large scale conflict between East and West and why this war would be mainly economic in nature. I investigated how this conflict would actually benefit globalists and globalist institutions seeking to bring down multiple nations’ economies while hiding the engineered crisis behind a wall of geopolitical chaos and noise.

The blame game over surging prices is on.

The blame game over surging prices is on. Was it too much central-bank money being pumped out for too long that caused inflation to take off? Was it China, where most physical production had moved before the pandemic locked down the country and disrupted global supply chains? Was it Russia, whose invasion of Ukraine took a large chunk out of the global supply of gas, oil, grains, and fertilizers? Was it some surreptitious shift from pre-pandemic austerity to unrestricted fiscal largesse?

How long can billionaires continue to amass wealth while the world's poorest struggle to buy food?

How long can billionaires continue to amass wealth while the world's poorest struggle to buy food?

With the situation only being worsened by the economic impact of the Ukraine War – which has come on top of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic – could we be headed for mass revolts sparked by a desperate need for change? The war is causing food shortages, with the world’s poorest the most affected. Though the full impact is yet to be felt, the number of severely food insecure people has already “doubled from 135 million to 276 million” in just two years, leaving “almost 50 million on the edge of famine.”
