I see no need (or method of enforcement) for a “maximum wage”, but seriously… how much money does a person really need ? If you are a multi-billionaire, when does the law of diminishing returns kick in – or does one simply become more avaricious, sitting like a guardian crab atop that pile of coins, attacking anybody who comes close to taking away a piece of their pile?.Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. I posit that the same holds true for vast ownership of money. Money is power, and SCOTUS is tipping the scales in the direction of the oligarchs..In 1985, some friends and I took a road trip to San Felipe to watch the Baja 1000. On the twisty road east from Ensenada just at sundown, I saw a small town sitting in the middle of a rocky arroyo. The ramshackle plywood buildings, with small glimpses of candlelight through open windows, surrounded a small hill atop which was a magnificent electric-lit mansion, landscaped with palm trees behind high walls, like some kind of medieval castle..So will that be our fate, too? The Republicans want us to be just another third world country, with a lot of peons, and a few privileged elites who do what’s “best” for us? The oligarchs will control what we teach our children, what laws to obey, and what we see in the media?.The right wing screams that “liberals” are taking away their “freedom” without realizing that it is being taken away from them, piece by piece, through the hatred that is being fed to them with a fork and spoon.
