Ben Carson is a very smart and educated guy, we should understand that he views the world as filtered by his affiliance to Christian fundamentalism, which apparently brings about a pretty radical conservative view. This is my feeling.
He had a difficult boyhood in a single-mother family who just struggled to let her sons go to school. Yet now he is supporting a very rich man who doesn't know what poverty is. Unless Trump had a difficult boyhood as well.


Is there a list around of those 20 families who are ruling America?

Growing acceptance and some of the reasons and what can be done  (20  families not included).

Just trying to understand my/our karma being born into cultures with such vast differences in income. i doubt that this is the case in higher ages when there is more social care and concern for everyone because we are part of a larger whole... not separated entities.

Presently there are just a few examples of such higher age social systems. Sweden is like that, as I know it, it is forbidden to be too much rich by law and the income is equally spread troughout the population. I might have understood it wrongly but it deserves some research.

I'm not much upset by such extremes in richness, sicne the very extremes might have been those able to boost business and jobs in a nations. However, I am extremely annoyed by those who use people to make their vast sums then forget those people when it is time to give back. It is recent news that many a very rich men do not pay taxes. Many rich people do not tolerate taxers because their income is halved. Instead of 100 milion US$ they get a mere 50 million. That's preposterous, so the taxes (giving back to the community poart of the acquired wealth thanks to the community) are avoided sending money to fiscal heavens and creating many quasi-fake companies.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panama_Papers

Quote
he Panama Papers are a leaked set of 11.5 million confidential documents that provide detailed information about more than 214,000 offshore companies listed by the Panamanian corporate service provider Mossack Fonseca, including the identities of shareholders and directors of the companies. The documents show how wealthy individuals, including public officials, hide their money from public scrutiny. The papers identify current government leaders from five countries – Argentina, Iceland, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, and the United Arab Emirates – as well as government officials, close relatives, and close associates of various heads of government of more than forty other countries, including Brazil, China, France, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Syria and the United Kingdom. The latter was singled out by the media as being "at the heart of super-rich tax-avoidance network."[1]

The use of offshore business entities per se is not illegal in the jurisdictions in which they are registered, but during their investigation reporters found that some of the shell companies may have been used for illegal purposes, including fraud, drug trafficking, and tax evasion.[2]

The documents were made available to the Süddeutsche Zeitung beginning in early 2015 by an anonymous source, an unremunerated whistleblower using the pseudonym "John Doe".[3] The information documented actions going back to the 1970s and eventually totaled 2.6 terabytes of data. Given the scale of the leak, the newspaper enlisted the help of the U.S.-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), distributed documents for investigation and analysis to some 400 journalists at 107 media organizations in more than eighty countries. The first news reports based on the papers, and 149 of the documents themselves, were published on April 3, 2016. A full list of companies is promised for early May 2016.

mccoy thanks for your insights which i agree with. Perhaps people have an ego desire to b more powerful and have control of other peoples lives and they are working our those desires. At the same time there are people like you and i who take exception to this
greed and how it affects the common person. This may b because we ourselves were once wealthy and now must feel what it is like to be on the other side of the coin. Unless you have experienced both sides it is difficult to have compassion for either hence the experience of these lives we live and being exposed to all facets that we are yet not forgiving about. It leaves one to contemplate; How much do they want to react to these inequities knowing that this creates karma to live out the other side of life and see if we ourselves would be compassionate or we ourselves would show enmity. Yet for some causes we r called to champion. i believe that we have to scrutinize our motives... especially when the awareness level is so low as a cultural phenomena. However we see this changing dramatically with the appearance of Bernie Sanders and the social structure we see that has changed in such countries as Sweden which you mentioned.

Just an example of why Bernie and a new palette of faces makes more sense for U.S. ~ Joy Smith
