"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Spread the Wealth!

Here's a telling little chart from the ThinkProgress Wonk Room. It shows the difference between wages from the year 2000 to the profit increases of Exxon-Mobil.

Notice how flat the average wages are and how much profits at Exxon-Mobil have grown since 2000. Exxon-Mobil grows 250% while real wages stagnate. Feeling "trickled-down" on yet? Ready for a little wealth-spreading?
