the winner take all politics

America's increasing inequality just happened naturally or it's been politically engineered during the last thirty years?

The evidence is hard to dispute. Those in the very top - 1% society whealthiest - have been better and better with an increase of 256% in income gains comparing with 1970's statistics for the same group. In oposition the other groups grew much slower - only an average of only 10 to 20%. Many times with the complacency of the government.

The same is true in Portugal, the most unequal country in Western Europe, with a government that has adopted policies that only hasten this inequality.

A more egalitarian and democratic world is only possible with a more equality society. Because better social relations are built of this material foundation.
