We'll either be serfs or lords in the future

"The portion of American families living in middle-income neighborhoods has declined significantly since 1970, according to a new study, as rising income inequality left a growing share of families in neighborhoods that are mostly low-income or mostly affluent."

So this is where we are headed. Back to the time when the few rich controlled the lives of the many poor.  I kind of thought that having a middle class was a good idea, but apparently we seem to think that the olden days were great.  I for one am not looking forward to going back.
