    High income equality, high social mobility. That's what you were looking for, right?

    If there is high income equality, where is there to mobilise to?

    The guys: "Where we going KN?"
    KN: "Um, bout an 1/8 of a 1/16th of booger all, that way."

    You have a good point there, Wajoma. In Iceland, already one of the wealthiest countries in the world, the rich are really suffering. I'll light an extra candle for them today.

    I know it was a good point, can't have high mobility and high equality, just so much more BS innit.

    On the contrary, one can have both. I suggest obtaining a rudimentary understanding of these concepts. You might combine this with a crash course in basic economics.
