As the 2016 election approaches, the debate among the intelligentsia appears like it will center around the question of inequality. While income is distributed unequally in the country, what few people know is how much more unequally wealth, financial assets and inheritances are distributed.

The Republican Congress Votes for Dynasty Over Democracy

Robert L. Borosage | Posted 04.09.2015 | Politics
Robert L. Borosage

What any sensible Congress should be doing -- and what any sensible elite would be demanding -- is making the tax code more, not less progressive. Estate taxes should be higher; the various loopholes and dodges to escape them should be eliminated.

I propose that we redefine the meaning of success based on relevance rather than the amassing of money. A billionaire would then be someone that is relevant to the lives of a billion people, or whose actions positively impact on the lives of many.

We should remind ourselves that using wealth simply to create additional wealth, and hoping that will bring peace, happiness and immortality, is nothing but an illusion. Once the needs of family are met, we should use the rest for social good.

Wealth vs. Money

Robert Koehler | Posted 05.26.2015 | Politics
Robert Koehler

The world we've created is governed these days by two unquestioned principles: commodify and dominate. And it's chewing up the resources that used to belong to every occupant of the planet. It's the opposite of the philosophy that what we do as individuals we do for the good of the whole, and, indeed, there is no separation between the individual and the whole.

You know you were meant for great things. I know it, too. Even so, it's so easy to let our goals get sidetracked by fear and resistance.
