Great Britain under Victorian rule was very much a land of haves and have nots, whilst we had a huge Empire most of the wealth went to the few. If you
had money you could have anything, education, health, good housing, good food, and holidays. If you were poor you had no holidays, no money, no
health, no education and no food.
The US appears to be a modern version of it, whilst you have the mega rich, film stars wanting millions for a film, the best health care, the best
homes in the best locations, the best education and of course the best police protection.
The poor on the other hand have the #ty end of the stick, more people loosing their homes due to no employment, falling education standards, poor or
no health care, substandard living, poor diets most attention from the police.
Are the current US timis a reflection of our Victorian period?
