1) Across the board humanity is at risk of losing the fruits of hard fought battles for human advancement. Over the past 300 years progressive and liberal thought and action have largely ended monarchy, slavery, and achieved equality, human rights and voting rights for much of the world.

3) In the United States some 400 individuals possess more wealth than the 155 million Americans in the bottom half.
