As the debt that Americans owe which is over thirty-four trillion dollars ($34,000,000,000,000) becomes so large as to become more of an abstraction than anything most people can comprehend, why do so few Americans think about those who are owed this debt?
With wages remaining fairly stagnant for decades, why didn't Americans ever consider how they could afford to maintain or increase their standard of living? I know many states are increasing their minimum wage, but this comes at time when the percentage of income that the rich receive makes those increased minimum wages unsustainable. If instead of splitting 75% of the available income and the rich only getting 25% of it as was the case decades ago, we must split 50% of the income, we're shuffling less money amongst ourselves which inevitably goes to the rich as they gooble up an even greater percentage of the income.... because they own and control everything the rest of us need to survive. This is why I say the profit motive for anything necessary for survival should be minimal and controlled by a public trust. https://www.miksonsentertainment.com/blog
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.
