We've been trying, but it's tricky. The whole trouble is that some people are so good at making money that they're capsizing the entire economy.
So the real way to bring them back into alignment is to stop the people on the top from being so damn good at making money. To these ends, you institute government regulation on the more effective loopholes (outsourcing jobs, ect) and institute taxes that mostly target upper incomes.
Suddenly, the American Dream on the line. Hey! I thought this place was supposed to be about "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit Of Happiness." If I'm ludicrously rich and able to kick back and live in complete luxury without lifting a finger, it's because my father, my grandpapa, my great grandpapa, ect all worked their asses off 24/7 until we found a way to pull that off, and some people were really mean over the decades but we finally beat them. How dare you come in here and take away our money for being too good at the game?
Ugh! I get that, but you're fucking breaking the economy with how effective you are at it. Maybe you should-
NOPE. The 1% bought the conservative party, and use the fact that they own most media outlets to snowjob half the country and keep their wealth secure. They do this by demonizing this supposed "for the people, by the people" agency, targeting the government itself, so the people are not going to be on the side of instituting those higher rich-targeting taxes and government regulations.
So, speaking as an individual, what can I do? I can write this post and promote greater awareness. Or you can create something silly like we've seen in the OP pic to promote greater awareness. But ultimately, we're up against ignorance, and there's a 100% ignorant person created every time a babby comes out of smebody, so it's an ongoing battle.
