And one day we must ask the question,

And one day we must ask the question, “Why are there forty million poor people in America?” And when you begin to ask that question, you are raising questions about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth. When you ask that question, you begin to question the capitalistic economy.

I resolved to stop accumulating and begin the infinitely more serious and difficult task of wise distribution.
