Eye opener for February 29, 2024: New York is an example of how wealth inequality even effects the rich

When you need to make $200,000 per year to be considered middle to upper middle class in 2024, you know something is wrong with the place in which you live. This is becoming a norm in New York City as nothing escapes the exponentially growing imbalances affecting that metropolis.

I've heard the stories about how unaffordable the Big Apple has become and how illegal immigrants are receiving benefits that none of the legal residents of the city are getting. The rents too high and now, drivers are being charged to enter and to leave. And, as I stated above, those legal residents get nothing from those the elect as their leaders.

It seems as if the residents of NYC would be better off not having any type of leadership at all. Not only does it seem as if the leaders there do nothing for their constituents but they are actually having a negative impact on their lives. From telling school children to stay home so their schools can be used to house or process illegals to the crazy precedent set by the ruling to charge Trump $350 million dollars for a transaction that benefitted all parties involved, New York is becoming unlivable.

Personally, I know someone who makes a very good living working for one of the largest accounting firms in the world, but even she is considering leaving New York. The problem is that being from Miami, she doesn't know if moving back home would be a good solution, because relative to New York, she would make less, making Miami nearly as expensive as New York. So, as I've warned for years, allowing our leaders to continue down the unsustainable path of wealth inequality may initially only impact the poor, but would spread to all classes. Even if the impact were secondary in nature like having to go to the grocery store and be amongst the lower classes, it counts as being impactful.

For now, the ultra rich are immune to the worst impacts of the inequality they promote and pay others to promote, but until the robot body guards and/or shock collars for human body guards are perfected and accepted, they too are at risk. When enough of the majority realize the damage that the rich and especially the ultra rich have caused, they're gonna be pissed. As I've said in the past,

Where will the rich go when they've turned the entire planet into one giant ghetto?

In 2018, I wrote a book highlighting the problems Humanity would face if more power, wealth, and control was funneled to a small group of elite individuals, groups, or organizations. In my book, I provided solutions (from myself and others) to the inevitable problems and also a means for the Public to analyze, compare, and contrast the words and deeds of those we choose to follow against reality. In my book Solutions: Enough complaining. Let's fix America.

In "Solutions...", I provide the means for readers to disseminate information as provided by their news sources of choice, their elected officials, and any other authority they choose to follow. The book also offers a means to hold their leaders up, not just to a higher standard than is currently accepted but to one that would improve their lives and the lives of those for whom they care.
