Sounds like Communist Russia when the most productive 5% of agriculture were the personal gardens around the homes of individual families.
They took and never gave back in return.
But we can be more united (hopefully)... (mabey)...

It's a line from Candide.

I just read that line, in Frank McCourt's Tis. He had a hard time living the American dream, too. All those inequalities keep getting in the way.

I sure am glad for the literary people in the family. If only I didn't have to spend my time in textbooks all day...
