Obama was right when he said it’s good to spread the wealth around.
The fact that there’s been very little wealth-spreading after he got into office is unfortunate, but not very surprising. He's bought and paid for like the rest of them. But that’s another topic.
He was however right when he said “when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody”. Spreading the wealth around does create a better society.
By spreading the wealth we create a more equal society in which more people will have more freedoms and possibilities in their lives. An increasing number of people will be able to enjoy the benefits that exist in a modern technological society. By improving the social safety nets and worker’s rights, people would also feel less insecure and stressed; the fear of losing your home and income f.ex. would be highly reduced. Poverty would decrease substantially causing less crime, conflict and violence. This combined with creating a real participatory democracy would be the best way to organize society.
In a wealthy, modern society we should organize it so that everyone can have a decent life.
Spread the wealth around!
