It won't happen in my lifetime, or yours. The bigger problem is that we pretend we live in a democracy when the truth is we live in an oligarchy.
No one can buy a house for a year's salary because in the last 40 years CEO salaries went up 1107% while worker salaries increased only 10.9%.
That's not going to change anytime soon because congress is a millionaire's club, and the richest people control everything, including politicians.
How can we expect politicians to fix anything when they are benefiting from the system being just as it is?
This was excellent. I so love the way you write. :)
