What Can We Do to Start Civilizing our Richest?

By Sam Pizzigati

 

What makes a society civilized?

Civilized societies — to protect and enhance the greater good — set limits on how people behave.

We let our wealthiest keep getting ever wealthier.

And the pace of that enriching is ever quickening.
