Good question, Matt, let’s broaden it…Why all the inequality worldwide? Why all the global debt? What American government services are you referring to? Air traffic control, law enforcement, national security, disaster relief? And, yes, the Fed is raising interest rates, albeit for the first time in many years. That’s to keep the economy from overheating because it’s doing so well. Vampire Boy can badmouth the USA all he wants, but that neither makes it true nor accurate. Why is Medium persistently promoting such radical left wing socialist/communist propaganda? That’s the real question, especially considering that Medium and Silicon Valley would be nonexistent without capitalism. Wake up people!
