Seat Of The Empire

In the Hunger Games movies, a repressive totalitarian government presides over thirteen districts from “The Capitol,” an ostentatious, ostensibly “progressive” urban center filled with wealthy and powerful elites who spend most of their time reveling in decadence and privilege.

Sound familiar?

It should: It’s coming to a continent near you.

The seat of America’s Evil Empire – Washington, D.C. – is evolving into precisely such a place. If it isn’t already.

While the rest of America struggles to make a living, those who live in the seat of the empire are doing just fine thanks.

The latest evidence of this trend? Soaring incomes in Washington, D.C. that contrast the flat incomes everywhere else in the country.
