Imagine a room w/ 100 people. There is a total of \$100 in this room. One person controls \$42 of that \$100. The other 99 people each control 58 cents. While this is just simple way of explaining it, there are enough of the 99% who now understand this discrepancy in wealth and resources and are now connected enough to change the system in a beneficial way for all.

Aw! I love your simplistic analogy!

To me, this about sums up the reality of the discussion. Overly simplistic yes, but adequate in function. S+F

Thanx. The attempt was simplistic in nature yet I love the mathematical response.

Star for the neat analogy.

However you seem to be saying that one person is in the wrong, or should have an equal share?

If you prefer communism, get to the point and advocate it, best not to beat around the bushes...

If that one person earned it while the rest did nothing, then what is the problem?
