  43. “When any relationship is characterized by difference, particularly a disparity in power, there remains a tendency to model it on the parent-child-relationship.

  57. “Behavior must also be adequately assessed under appropriate circumstances.

  58. “An increasing number of people are growing uncomfortable with the gulf between the world’s rich and the poor. Ostentatiously splashing your money around simply draws attention to that disparity, and to your own position on the lucky higher ground.

  60. “I see a violation of human rights not in the mere fact that people don’t have enough to eat and that they are very vulnerable, but I see it in the fact that the economic institutional order of the world is associated with this very persistent poverty and that different institutional arrangements at the supranational level could stop and even reverse the slide towards ever-greater income disparities.” ~ Thomas Pogge
  61. “The fact is in a city like Chicago, for example, unemployment in the black community is around 20 percent for adults, 35 percent for youth, they bail out the banks, public schools, there is a deep divide.

I feel as if the different races are pitted against one another so we won’t see the bigger (financial disparity) problem.” ~ David Banner
  65. “In the meantime, we have just incredible economic disparities and economic despair in this country and an entire generation that is basically held hostage in debt without the jobs to get out of it.

This is not a good picture, and I think the American people are discovering that.” ~ Jill Stein
