Uh huh, with their smart phones, internet, and abundance of nutrition and all.

I get that wealth is piling up at the top more than ever before, but that doesn't mean the poor are worse than before. Something needs to be done about the acceleration of wealth to the top because any rate of change is unsustainable. It isn't a problem that there are strata of wealth, but instead the acceleration of wealth to the top.
