  •  Congratulations! I hope you will read and (0+ / 0-)

    re-read,as I do, the books of Chris Hedges to help you on your new journey. Try reading The Spirit Level by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett, too

    http://www.truthdig.com/...    for Hedges.

    for a video of Wilkinson speaking about his book. The book is far more detailed in its research and evidence on income inequality, and therefore even more convincing, than the video.

    Wilkinson's work is the best there is for showing the corrosive effects of income inequality, on every aspect of society, in the most developped countries. Read it and you will never again have any doubt about the evil effects of distorted income inequality, especially in the USA, but the UK and some others. These are juxtaposed against more equal countries, which on every single measure perform much better. All backed by statistics, easy to understand, while shocking
