Focused on the US, but I found this a very simple and powerful infographic and rather than shoe-horn it into another conversation I thought I’d start a new thread.

It is incredible to think that he alone could probably solve almost any problem ever by distributing his immense wealth rightfully back to society and to his workers.

But people claiming three hundred quid a month are the real scroungers like.

Yet more evidence that politics focuses too much economics and not nearly enough to cultural issues, especially those related to anglophone pop culture.

If you manage to scroll past JB, there’s a lot more there.

It’s interesting stuff, but I’d never seen a comparison like that before. Some of the points are a bit trite, but the underlying arguments are sound.

I picked a bad day to restart my Prime subscription so I could watch Seinfeld without adverts.

He's created millions of jobs for people.
It's his money, he can do what he wants with it.
It's not his fault he pays almost no tax, it's the government's for not closing tax loopholes.

etc etc

I see he claimed the tax credit for working parents so the US federal government gave him $4k to help raise his child lmao.
