You say “ We have more poor, more working poor and less middle class than ever before.”

That is Left-Wing propaganda, completely unsupported by the facts: Poverty has been in rapid retreat over the last 30 years, as defined by any statistic you care to name. These myths about the ill-effects of Capitalism and Globalisation are harmful, as the weak-minded accept them as fact and act against our best interests as a result. Take a look at these two sites:

“By almost any measure, the world is better than it has ever been. People are living longer, healthier lives. Many nations that were aid recipients are now self-sufficient. You might think that such striking progress would be widely celebrated, but in fact, Melinda and I are struck by how many people think the world is getting worse. The belief that the world can’t solve extreme poverty and disease isn’t just mistaken. It is harmful. That’s why in this year’s letter we take apart some of the myths that slow down the work. The next time you hear these myths, we hope you will do the same.”
