Thomas Piketty's study on inherited wealth.

It's success is inversely proportional to the success of socialism

The great successes of Socialism in the 20th century

But the rich have fought back viciously
and have recovered about half of what they had lost.

The percentage of Americans who claim "no religion"
has caught up to the number of Catholics and Evangelicals.

All 3 groups are now evenly represented by ~23% of the population

If you read all the way to the end you would have encountered this:
"As America has turned away from the Christian faith,
we have become steadily less moral and steadily less religious.
If we continue down this path, many believe
that the future of our nation is going to be quite bleak indeed.
"

It sounds to me like the Ghost Worshippers are starting to get a little ...

continue to legislate from the bench.
They just gave a huge gift to Big Business
to help them in their monopolization of America.

Ohio v. American Express - 2018

Just another example that proves
that the biggest prize in the 2016 election
wasn't the presidency for 4 years,
but control over the Judiciary ...

The Republican recruitment of antivaxxers

Republicans, who are trying to sell Americans on the idea

How much did Dick's Sporting Goods lose in gun sales last year
after removing assault weapons and high-capacity magazines?

$150 million

All the other corporations chose the money over American lives.
Behold the power of the NRA and Big Business.
And they will continue to promote a culture of killing
for nothing more than ... money

Guess which group of wackos, the Republicans are courting now?

Anti-Vaxxers

Republicans pick from the very bottom of the intellectual barrel:
White Supremacists, Evangelicals, the Least Educated, and loonies like Anti-Vaxxers.
Republicans don't care ... all they want is their vote;
and all those groups I listed above are sitting ducks for conservative propaganda.

The deficit explained by Robert Reich

"Of all 35 advanced economies, America’s spending on social programs
like Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid is among the lowest ....
Also, Americans pay into Social Security and Medicare throughout their entire working lives.
The biggest reason America has the highest deficit relative to our total economy
among all 35 advanced economies is because of a shortage of tax revenue.
Of all these countries, we’re bringing in the fifth-lowest total revenue as a share of GDP.
