Hyde Park may not exactly be an American Downton Abbey, but Roosevelt’s second inaugural address captures the essence of the nature of the social contract between the haves and have-nots, when he said, “The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."
