There are 40 people on one side of a road. There is one person on the other side of the road.
A bread truck pulls up and the driver gives the one person — standing there alone (perhaps impatiently tapping a Gucci-loafered foot and checking his Rolex) — 40 LOAVES OF BREAD. Then the driver gives the group of 40 people, in varying states of dress and hunger, ONE LOAF OF BREAD to share among themselves. He drives off.
~ Jill Stein, paraphrased from a workshop in NYC 3.23.13
Dr. Stein used this scenario to illustrate how the top 1% of our citizenry controls 40% of the wealth of this country. The bottom 40% controls only 1% of the wealth.
