https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkQqQKpERww The increase in the wealth of the ten richest American is way more than enough to pay for a Covid-19 vaccine for everyone on earth. That's freaking 637 billion dollar we are talking about!What they just made during the pandemic,while still,the crisis threatens a lost decade in the fight against poverty. Billions of people were living on the edge when the pandemic began and had no resources or support to weather this fierce storm.While at the same time,a tiny number of individuals have pocketed more money in nine months than they could spend in a lifetime. These facts are shameful.The US government?They did nothing.NOTHING!Yet,they bragged about how the American Dream is going to change our life?Regardless of where we were born or what class we were born into,attaining our own version of success in a society in which upward mobility is possible? It is us who got kicked down the ladder after being needed the most in the frontier and it is us who's been deceived by the so-called American Dream.
