Forbidden Fruit

Safe Haven | Forbidden Fruit
Leaving the politics aside for now, as has already been reported upon in a previous Letter, the top 1%, or top 10%, of individuals within the US, is gaining ever more wealth while the lower 60-80% are struggling to keep status quo or, in fact, are not able to maintain a status quo.

Nevertheless, even while the wealth rate seemingly climbs, the infrastructure of the middle class seems to fall further into disrepair. Health, education, social organisations all fall further behind and polarise to the "have more" and the "have less".
