Is wealth inequality in America hurdling our nation toward civil unrest? In a television interview this morning - former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski warned that the growing wealth imbalance in America - now reaching levels not seen since the Great Depression - could lead to civil unrest in the streets. As the middle-class in America falls deeper and deeper into desperation - Brzezisnki said, "we're going to slide into intensified social conflicts, social hostility, some forms of radicalism, there is just going to be a sense that this is not a just society."

We have a society in which 400 people own more wealth that 150 million other Americans. We have a society in which 50% of all the children in America will depend on food stamps at some point in their life before they are 18 - and among African American children that number is 90%.

 

We no longer live in a just society - and if Brzezinski is right - turbulent times could be ahead for America.
