  •  Excellent Diary! (5+ / 0-)

    This is much more insightful than what I thought I would find:

    A story about how the game "Monopoly" is used to train our children that income inequality is necessary and fun, and that, as a society, it was perfectly acceptable to aspire to become a slumlord that accumulates wealth until the other players lose their homes or become imprisoned and the whole system collapses due to the concentration of wealth into one player's hands, and the only hope that one has after sliding into poverty is to hit the lottery (Free Parking - yes, I know, its not in the rules).

    This diary was much better than that.  Thanks!  ;-)
