Dumbledore’s magnificent double agent ladies and gentlemen
I know he’s actually reacting to what Dumbledore is saying, he’s not paying any attention to the candles, but this makes me snort every single time all the same.

9 Out Of 10 Americans Are Completely Wrong About This Mind-Blowing Fact
WOW. Okay. All the more reason to move out of this country when I can. Well, from looking at this, if I ever can.
I’m making $0.50 over minimum wage
I’m scheduled for one day this week and I can’t find a second job
I’m trying to study abroad
I’m fucked even if I stay in the states to finish college
that’s fucked up wow
First came across this concept in my sociology classes. Great graphic representation. Watch it. Get angry. Get active.
I want out of this country. That’s so fucked up.
Literally the best explanation of the inequitable distribution of wealth in the USA. I love the calm tone, straightforward graphics, and clear concise explanation of the information that’s being presented. The purpose is not to stir people into angry mobs or work us into a frenzy of rage, but rather to bring information to the forefront and treat us like we’re rational beings with the ability to make real change based on the information presented to us.
Something else I’d be interested in knowing more about, relative to this video, would be the distribution of things like hours worked to obtain that share of money (since salaried employees aren’t paid hourly - do they tend to work more or less on average, some people gain their money through things like inheritance or investments, people in mid to lower class pay-grades sometimes work multiple jobs, and a large portion of people on this chart should theoretically be unemployed based on what I know about our current state of affairs.) I’d also be interested in the distribution of money paid in order to obtain things like education and certifications and training for their profession, to see if those kind of investments really do pay off.
I’d also love to know more about what can be done to make adjustments toward a more equitable system. (Perhaps more toward peoples’ perceptions of where we’re at - at least for now.) I know many people believe that it should be the government’s job to redistribute this wealth through things like taxation and programs to aid the poor, however I’d love to see this problem solved pre-emptively. Rather than taking money from people that they already feel they’ve earned and are entitled to, and creating resentment and anger there, I’d like to see the initial payouts shift. That way they money doesn’t even need to pass through the government at all, cutting out the middle man and not running the risk of those tax dollars being funneled off into something else entirely. What can we as citizens of this country opposed to this current state of affairs do to make this change? I don’t think that getting dramatically angry (with things like protests or raging hatefully) or leaving the country will help, we need to act intelligently to help shape our futures in the manner we see fit.
