It is bitter for me to think of those who sleep without a floor, but are thankful for the blanket they found on the side of the street, while others complain that the silk their butlers dressed their bed with is simply too inexpensive. One wakes up at the crack of dawn to pick apples for a farmer that only pays their mother five dollars a day. Another lays in bed on their brand new iPhone, waiting for their maid to make them breakfast.
When the people of the United States bear witness to such great selfishness in the face of so much need, it creates an environment of anger and hurt. Why is it that those with the most contribute the least to society, and harm it in the greatest capacity? There are boys and girls in dirty clothes sitting on the sidewalk and begging for change as the top one percenters walk by carrying more in their wallet than the children will hold in their lives. This wealth divide is unnecessary and so incredibly harmful to those who have nothing, as their assets continue to be squandered and tucked away by those with too much to spend.
This is the reality of both ends of the wealth spectrum, with the top one percent making around $700,000 a year, and the bottom one percent earning anywhere from two to sixteen dollars a day, as shown by How Much Income Puts You in the Top 1%, 5%, 10%? written by Julia Kagan on Investopedia, and The Bottom 1% by Rebecca J. Rosen on The Atlantic.
Those with nothing are forced to live a life undeniably distanced from the American Dream, while those with everything have the need for nothing but the want for more. While many countries have issues with wealth inequality, facts published on Inequality.org under Wealth Inequality in the United States reveal that The United States exhibits wider disparities of wealth between rich and poor than any other major developed nation. This gives even more reason for the focus to be on America, for if we can diminish the wealth gap here, it can be diminished everywhere.
This issue of wealth inequality has been a focus of mine for nearly two decades, and after getting two doctorates from Harvard University, one in Wealth Inequality and another in The Study of the Spectrum, I feel prepared to involve myself with the solution. I have always been fascinated by this divide and eager to find a remedy, having been born into the bottom one percent and making my way into the top one percent by the age of 35, a sort of phenomena in the current day and age. I have experienced the entire spectrum, and I have seen the ramifications such great wealth or lack thereof has on people of all ages. I want to better the world, and I have prepared myself to do so concerning wealth inequality and its continuously widening gap.
In an article published on Pew Research Center and entitled, Americas wealth gap between middle-income and upper-income families is widest on record Richard Fry and Rakesh Kochhar state that In 2013, the median wealth of the nations upper-income families ($639,400) was nearly seven times the median wealth of middle-income families ($96,500), the widest wealth gap seen in 30 years when the Federal Reserve began collecting these data.
It is currently at an all time high, and this divide seems not to be lessening anytime soon. This is data for upper-income families as a whole, not just the top one percent, signifying the even greater gap between the one percent wings. Because those in the top one percent have so much and those in the bottom one percent have so little, the spectrum is stretched thinner than this report even demonstrates. The wealth gap in America is a pressing issue, and if not addressed and treated presently, its chance to be remedied may pass altogether.
As a woman of great knowledge and power, please allow me to humbly propose my respectful plan to successfully minimize the wealth gap in the United States. I believe this is a problem easily fixed by shipping off the top and bottom one percent in terms of wealth. This immigration would occur in waves of one million, with a total of about 6.5 million residing in Africa by the completion of this mission. This would immediately shrink the wealth gap, for it is virtually cutting off both ends, but it would also allow for economic mobility and spread of wealth and resources.
This is because 6.5 million people no longer need the resources that they once did, such as food, shelter, and money. The top one percent owns so much of Americas wealth, the entire population could reach a level of comfortable living if the wealth was distributed equally. Because Africas climate is changing so quickly and its population is drastically decreasing from fleeing citizens, there will be plenty of room for the new 6.5 million inhabitants that have no means of return and have lost all assets.
I am in no means trying to adopt the persona of the infamous Polish leader, Anzelm Babinski. Whenever I think of him sending his top and bottom one percent to a giant fish tank filled with piranhas, I shriek in horror. A truly wicked man would have to come up with a plan as atrocious as that, and a truly wicked man Babinski is. His inhumanity seems too have come from a lack of education and care, both of which I have a bountiful supply.
Let us move forward, as I begin to humbly explain why this plan would lessen wealth inequality in the United States. Firstly, the amount of homelessness would be all but eliminated on the streets of America. The distribution of wealth and newly available housing would allow for all to reside peacefully and work towards regaining their life, unless of course they prefer being homeless. Secondly, hunger would no longer plague the lower-income families, as the plentiful resources now available will be used to ensure that everyone is well fed and has enough nutrition to perform well in all tasks.
Thirdly, the elimination of the wealthiest in our nation would leave room for new opportunities for those who may previously have never had the opportunity to make something of themselves. Jobs would be opened in abundance, and those that used to have to wait behind the people with the multi-thousand dollar watches would now have no line.
Fourthly, this elimination of the top one percent would include Donald Trump, the current President of the United States who happens to have majored in Buffoonery. His absence would hurt none and benefit all, allowing the United States to regain its composure and act on matters that are truly important.
While I could continue with the advantages my plan encompasses for hours, I will stop here for the sake of brevity. This is simply my proposal, but the remainder of my 1,000 page plan is being published shortly.
I feel insulted when people offer suggestions for my plan, such as increasing savings for those with low and moderate incomes in America. They also suggest that the top 1 percent and especially the top 0.1 percent be taxed a higher amount, with that money given to those in the middle and lower class, for they are the people putting money back into the economy. These proposals could never work, and it is atrocious to even consider their ability to slowly heal the gap.
As I write this I begin to reminisce on my times in America, for I have made my way to the top one percent, and will therefore be included in the immigration. Along with myself, my family continues to reside in the bottom one percent and will too be shipped off. My proposal is humble and selfless, for I have learned that the world does not improve through greed. I wish to make the world a better place, and through this plan it will finally become the American Dream that it has always been idealized as – for everyone.
