In all of history the rich get richer.
However, many people REFUSE to admit that the poor get richer as well. The poor are NOT getting poorer.
The mightiest of kinds only a few years ago would have been amazed to see how some of the poorest people in our country today have the amazing ability to move 1,000 miles in one single day for the cost of some 3 days worth of work.
Think of that: you can literally work for about 20 hours, and afford to drive to Florida from Ohio.
This should explode people's minds.
However, instead of being mesmerized by the glory of voluntary exchange, we talk about how "relative to the rich, the poor are not gaining wealth as fast".
If you want TRUE wealth to be generated, get the government out. Government IS war; government IS theft; government IS economic poison.
The only way to riches is through voluntary exchange. Government steals the wealth generated in this fashion and proceeds to distribute it to friends.
