I think the we work for all should be up one rung on the ladder.  The work for all, feed all seems to be more of the middle class not the lowest class.

No, I don't think it is accurate.

It's accurate if it read "corporatism" or some other form of oligarchy. True free market capitalism keeps the "powers that be" in check by consumer regulation.

I think it is a reasonable and reasonably fair graphic representation of how things have gone wrong with our economy since the seventies and we all need to start to address the issues represented on the graph. As far back as President Eisenhower (If you're interested read his farewell address that addressed his concerns. Sorry but I don't have the ability to provide a link here, although it is fairly easy to find.) there were serious concerns about the military/industrial complex and the situation has only gotten worse since then.
