offtopic as in debating what political system the elites use. I'd love to hear more about the original post.

The conclusion is obvious: more than 90% of the actual wealth in the world today (real and paper) is hidden from us , in terms of any data made readily available to the general public. This unimaginable hoard of wealth is certainly not being hidden by the vast majority of people at the bottom of the wealth totem-pole, therefore it can only be hidden at the top.
Tell, me, is it easier for the world elites to corrupt a nation, and a political system that gives all power to one branch of government, and which takes away liberties and rights in the name of the common good? Or would it be easier for them to corrupt a system in which power is shared between different branches of government and guarantees liberties and freedom for each and every individual?
