And there you have it.......How much of the worlds economy do you have to own to gain complete control?
By my own reconning the rest of the wealth would be drained off at a faster pace the more they own maybe?
We are definitely well on the way to slavery.......
What really gets me is that these bastards always did have a head start on humanity in the financial department because of control being in so few hands way back when.....
The only answer I see working is we have to toally strip the 1% of all their wealth, or simply eliminate their earthly presence sooner rather than later....
Once they own the majority (which they almost do now.....) their power will be nearly invincible, barring the complete awakening of all mankind.....
It does look like we are fast approaching freedoms bleakest hours in the near future.....

Im saying this is a war of survival......that's all......Its a certainty they HAVE STOLEN MUCH OF THAT WEALTH.....INUMERABLE WAYS TO DO SO WHEN YOU ARE THE OWNER.....That whole wealth concept is screwed if one takes into account the entire worlds situation, its obvious that money and its owners have totally used the device for control and domination.....
Many of the famous elite are guilty of innumerable financial and social crimes....I would have little pity for their plights....
Investigations could prove the allegation they are totally corrupt....Strip the innocent and imprison the guilty....take back our human inheritance which they have stolen...and stop further depradation upon humanity.

I don't have a problem with it either way really but was just saying because if we eliminate them, someone else will rise to the position. Maybe we need a new system instead idk what that would be

I haven't logged in for months but a few questions (because this really is an insane thread you've created - watched The Dark Knight Rises too many times?)
1. What is this "human inheritance" you speak of and believe was stolen?
2. Why do you feel you're entitled to someone else's money, regardless of how they obtained it? If they obtained their riches through hard work or even inherited it from their family, do you deserve that money too? I concede that many of the wealthy are sketchy - but where do you draw the line?
3. Perhaps this is a tough concept for folks like I'm talking about to understand, but if you "strip the 1%", you create a new 1%. There will always be a 1% - someone will always have more. Those with less will always envy them and be bitter.

Bonus question: What is the purpose of your thread anyways? With all due respect, I wonder if you're bitter or jealous, or perhaps one of those people who refuse to work to earn an honest days pay (you know they're out there). I know that's a silly question that anyone would deny, but I have to wonder...What do you hope to accomplish? You think someone will suddenly cut you a cheque for a cool million and you'll be on your way?

It is frightening really.

I was reading an article the other day about an owner of one of our football teams here in the UK and how he was worth approximately £500,000,000. I was pondering how unimaginable it would be to have half a BILLION pounds in the bank when I noticed that a few sentences on from that the article also stated that he was Britain's 457th richest man.

Mind boggling.

Who gets to determine these values? What if I don't like them? What if you don't like them? Then what? Reorganize again? I, personally, want to keep money. I enjoy the fact that I can work harder and earn more, if I so choose. If I see a nice new shirt or watch or TV I can earn some extra money by working more and get things I want, or I can help friends in need, or save for a rainy day. Its insane to think that eliminating money would make the world go....anywhere.

I find it strange that through money people feel they can not only control other peoples lives, but the few can own our planet and its resources.

I have often wondered if the reason for the drop in mental health care was due to the fact that it was discovered the sociopaths are running our planet!

The Human Species has another 25000 years or so to get "there".

All the psychiatric and psychological and pathological problems need to be bred out before anything will change.

Even the so called "Intellectuals" will still kill to prove a point.

And whatever values you decide to use will have some folks more than others. In other words, you still have the rich and the poor.

I read it wrong.
Similar to the 85 Richest people having more wealth than half of the worlds population...3.5 billion people.
This is crazy...the wealth really does only go one way and the rich really do only get richer.

All the money in the world won't come close to paying off the debt of the big countries of the world and their citizens.

the disparity between the top tier and those at the base has never been greater. it is indeed 'the best of times, the worst of times'. as for the 1%, let's hope they spend some of their billions on philanthropic ventures and medical research that might benefit us all.... (crickets, tumbleweed, a distant bell etc)

Most common people are concerned by this especially when they see their own wages staying the same or decreasing over the decades in addition to being worked even harder now (doing the work of multiple employees nowadays) then ever.

And all this while at the same time they are being told that they cannot get a wage increase (with the allegations ie: LIES of wage increases leading to job cuts and rising prices), while they see ASTRONOMICAL increases in pay, bonuses by the fat cats in control who say such things to them. With these ASTRONOMICAL increases in compensation by the fatcats, and the current employees who today worker harder than ever, do people actually REALLY BELEIVE that the only solution is job cuts and rising prices if they got paid a fair wage that AT THE VERY LEAST kept up with inflation?

This is why most common folks have an issue with this wage inequality of today. It is not jealousy of the rich, it is that they realize that they are being exploited BADLY while it is they who are doing ALL of the WORK and are being compensated just barely enough to get by dealing with serious struggle and worry their entire lifetime.

Also, forgot to mention that the 1% use their mountains of extra money that they have to bribe politicians, YET they claim to not be able to afford DECENT WAGES for their employees that at LEAST keep up with inflation!! The masses of common folks are angry at being exploited in every possible way and at the fact that they are being lied to at the same time. They are not jealous of the wealthy, but sick of what is going on today because of them.

This behavior is bringing all but the ultra wealthy down to a level of complete misery and hopelessness. And it has got to change soon.

Before long, the angry masses will be looking up the home addresses of the ultra wealthy and going after them with pitchforks if it doesnt change.

Most common people have no idea about basic economics so they fall for liberal BS like economic inequality. The reason some are seeing increases in pay has to do with it being a knowledge economy. Certain skills are in very high demand while average skillsets are not. It is a result of technology and global competition. It isn't because the "rich" are trying to keep it all for themselves.

Americans no longer compete against themselves, but globally. Unfortunately, for the least skilled, there is some guy from IIT in India who can do your job at half the cost or the blue collar guy is seeing his job shipped to China. However, the guy that is a programmer or has some valuable skill is in high demand.

There will always be economic inequality. ALWAYS. Yes, there are some obscenely rich people but why do you care? These people earned their money by providing something of value on a large scale that in most cases betters the lives of many.

Because their wreakless actions and behaviors are sinking America and causing American citizens to find themselves in a sad hopeless misearable state of affairs with no hope of the American dream for their children and grandchildren no matter how much education they have, or how many jobs they work.

I have no issues whatsoever with wealthy folks (I dont do bad myself) but when it is TOO MUCH, it is TOO MUCH. People have to start thinking about the COUNRTY and not all about their bank accounts or we will ALL sink.

I LoLd. All your arguments are intrinsic of someone fully conditioned by & addicted to the system.
