Farrell on wealth inequity
Paul Farrell has a piece where he is warning about some kind of class warfare due to the gross misallocation of wealth that has been happening for some time.
I think as grossly inequitable wealth distribution continues higher levels of schadenfrede behaviour are seen. To me, it was unbelievable the degree of this behaviour that exists in Britain, which imho, helped to make it a really awful place to live. But, I also couldn't believe the level of racism and bullying. I tend to think these are all component of class warfare. Where I was I found the education level low, but their 6th form is like our senior high school and there is little expectation to do 6th form. Leaving school at about a grade 10 level is completely acceptable, and most of my students who would be leaving school at the end of the year struggle with their multiplication tables. It was totally unbelievable to me.
