"Government of, by, and for the economic elite... has been the most successful method of government in the United States, and around the world. But is it the only way? And, is it the best way forward TODAY — when centuries-old economic and political theories are being challenged by new innovations of the Age of Network Intelligence." —Jessica English

I love cartoons. Our constitution was written so that power would not be concentrated among an elite, yet our market seems to concentrate wealth. I'm going to rant now. I work a 12-hour day every day either painting or teaching. Sometimes I turn on the television set and see thousands of people paying $100 to watch a baseball game. I see people watching a parade, playing around going to parties and video games. I never see people seriously studying to get ahead. Yet, the people who play the most want the wealth distributed equally. It's not easy to overcome economic obstacles and wealth gives advantages to those who have it. But to throw your money away on entertainment at the expense of education is something else.
The cartoon above was taken from a post by Jeff Tallman who has been an influence in my life since I was in 8th grade. I tell my wife that you keep running into the same people over and over again in life. Is that because we keep doing the same things over and over? If we keep repeating things over and over, is it any wonder that the wealth is unequal?
