This year is my 15th July 4th, as a Brit’ abroad, I take my annual message to the occupiers of the former British Coloney, now known as America, seriously. This July 4th, as you ponder the growing inequality, and the gap between the rich and poor, consider this quote:

from the teachers speech in the Linklater classic, Austin TX based film, Dazed and Confused. The film is set in 1976. Somethings never change.
