The law of inverse proportionality (#2716)

     When there is a constant, the constant remains the same regardless of how unequal the constant is apportioned among the variables. We have limited resources and if one group receives more resources it is natural that another group will receive less. In many ways this law of inverse proportionality can be spread out over many paradigms. From happiness/sadness to wealth/poverty. When one side has more the other side has less. the greatest example of this I can give is also right now our nations biggest problem, unequal wealth. We have a massive wealth disparity between those who have too much and those who have way too little.
     With those who have too much the problem is that there are very few of those and those who have way too little there are way too many of them. The scales of justice when it comes to wealth by a few weighed against those who have way too little is heavily weighted on the too little side. In fact so heavily weighted that there are fewer and fewer in between those two degrees of wealth. The same can be said for happiness. When only a few are experiencing unlimited happiness, there are many who are experiencing unending sadness. Happiness can be quantified by the measure of wealth. When too many cannot afford to exist properly then the sadness/anger can be measured as well as those who have way too much their happiness/glee can also be measured.
     What we need is metaphorically, an even keel, economic plan with opportunity for all, that can be enjoyed by the majority instead of just a small minority. Our society's economics have gotten out of control to the point of causing real harm and despair. This despair needs to have an outlet and almost always the outlet is even more damaging. We must get our society back to having more happiness in it if we are to reverse the current trend of sadness and it's effect. This is not rocket science folks, it is just plain common sense and as we should all know by now common sense is one of our greater human virtues.
