The CG is good for the time I guess. The thing I like the least is how the sassy girl character is magically Disneyfied into a sweet submissive "nice" girl at the end.God, I loved that movie when I was younger. Re-reading the synopsis, 6th-grade me really had garbage taste.
When Carroll Shelby beat old man Ferrari, he did it with cubic inches and cubic money. That's still a good plan.
Why does wealth have to be equally distributed?Riots are not nice. Oppression of people, police brutality and imbalance of distribution of power and wealth between people is not nice either, and that usually leads to trouble. Moving from one neighbourhood to another will not fix the problem. Focus on fixing the systemic flaws, that are the root causes of the problem. Because if you can't fix the systemic problems you are facing, you have bigger concerns down the road than your house depreciating a bit.
I repeat my call for an instant $14 trillion in reparations.
Your plan isn't clear though and has holes in it that you could drive a truck through.
First off, where would the money for reparations come from? If it comes from taxes, that's a massive redistribution of wealth that equates to theft. You, or rather the federal government, are taking money from me, who had no involvement in slavery, nor my family, and giving it to someone else. If it's just going to be printed, then holy inflation.
Second, if you're going to give out land, where does that land come from? Federal land isn't exactly where most people want to live. Utah is something like 80% federal land and it's mostly just dry and desolate wasteland.
Third, how would you determine who gets it? If it's based on the color of your skin, that essentially gives some people from the Caribbean, Central, and South America the ability to claim reparations. It would also cancel out anyone from North Africa since North Africans skin color is rarely "black". If it's based on whether you're an African American or not, that also doesn't work. I used to work with a guy who was, quite literally an African American. He was whiter than me and from Zimbabwe. Hell, Elon Musk is an African American.
Why does wealth have to be equally distributed?
I do know that the Seattle metro area (as well as almost every metro area in the pacific region) has an extreme affordable housing crisis that's only worsened as more and more tech jobs open up, causing a high rate of homelessness. Yet no one seems to know how to solve that.
What, you think there is less crime and more focus on human rights in countries where the inequality is higher?
Wealth has never been equally distributed but a cursory glance at world history will demonstrate that extreme levels of wealth inequality frequently lead to cataclysmic social unrest & often a complete breakdown of society.
