You do, everyone does... How silly to think otherwise. Life spans increase every year, for even the poorest, waist lines the same. Among the poor, most have cars or access to free transport, they get free food, they have TV's, they go to malls, they can even eat cake
If they are subjugated, it is the best sujugation ever. Gilded cage with flat screen & free food is not easily thrown away in hopes of better digs, that may not be there anyway. Especially when you must eat teargas and rubber bullets to even get started... The occupy bums will still fight, of course, but not the rest, we are happy.
Is that the best we can hope for? You care little about those who die for the lack of health care. You care little about governments that are manipulated by corporate interests? You are correct in assuming we should be grateful for what we have but it is our effort not those who manipulate our economy and our lives. In Europe there is hardship, hunger and anger. Ignore it at your pleasure but do not assume it will not fester and erupt.
