That the gap between the poor and the rich has reached dangerous levels. Picketty warns that the U.S. may be on the same trajectory as France before the Revolution, where the very rich ended with their heads chopped-off.After analyzing data from the U.K., France, Germany, Japan and the U.S., Picketty proved with hard data what many people already have been talking about for many years: the rich really are getting richer, and their wealth is not trickling down.

General Curtis LeMay was a belligerent Cold Warrior who was portrayed in the satirical film Dr. Strangelove, as the trigger-happy General Jack D. Ripper. In air campaigns against Japan during World War II, LeMay abandoned the established policy of daylight, precision bombing. Instead, he loaded his B29′s with firebombs and sent them out over Japanese cities during the night.
As LeMay described it, the B29′s “scorched, boiled and baked to death” some 300,000 people.After World War II, LeMay served in the Pentagon.
In 1947, LeMay transferred to Wiesbaden, Germany to command U.S. Air Forces in Europe. LeMay returned to the U.S. in October 1948 to take charge of the Strategic Air Command SAC. LeMay’s first war plan, drawn up in 1949, proposed delivering “the entire stockpile of atomic bombs in a single massive attack” — dropping 133 atomic bombs on 70 cities within 30 days.
