The thing about society is that the poor always outnumber the rich and this is their biggest fear. The thing the rich and powerful fear most is losing their wealth and power and I believe this is the sole reason for religion in this world, it is a means of control by the rich and powerful (who most always control the "clergy") and is the genius behind saying that people can't have a relationship with God but through the church and then put clergy in place to accept confessions of sin which are then used as a means to control the populace. Much of this started to change in the 1800's especially with the industrial revolution allowing many people to pull themselves out of abject poverty (living day to day).

I think WWI & WWII were planned between all the actors to systematically kill and destroy the lower classes either on the battle field or by bombing/artillery. Looking at what area's of London and other British cities that were bombed makes no sense in that the lower class areas were targeted - as well as in Germany. I would think they would think if they wanted the British to surrender they would at least have some bombing runs targeting palaces, estates, etc but I've yet to find evidence of this and the same for Germany.

Now Germany did destroy a lot of Poland, especially Warsaw (I think the palaces were shelled) but they targeted the Poles for extermination it seems.

All the wars since, in Africa, ME, Asia, etc, were all targeting the poor. The rich industrialists (weapons manufacturers) made MASSIVE amounts of money while creating a massive wealth gap between the poor and the wealthy.

The two/three biggest wealth holders in the world seem to be the British Monarchy, the Vatican and that banking family (Roth child Inc). How many deaths are on the hands of these three entities and why do we allow them to continue to exist?

Economic World War: Technocratic Plutocrat Elites vs. The People

But hey as long as Trump boosts the economy that inherently means the NWO has been brought to its knees.

Anytime the top one percent of earners are doing well, the rest of society suffers, because concentration of money is concentration of power, simply put.

Its ironic that some people manage to understand that, but do not manage to understand that putting a billionaire with a poor record of money management in charge of one of the worlds richest nations, was a STUPID BLOODY IDEA!

I hope you don't think that that is the way I feel (about everything being good now that T is in office). The only thing that is different is the social aspect between the candidates with T supporting more traditional views and more willing to enforce immigration laws it seems. I don't see much difference when it comes to globalism between the two parties, it might be an uneven split like a 60/40 of 70/30 - as to how fast the progressive globalist agenda would be reached if choosing the different parties (I think it would be reached faster with democrats IMO).

Oh I agree, I lost faith in Trump (as per being a true independent) when I saw pics of the Clintons at his 3rd wedding!

Another pointer is the term winning, famously touted by Charlie Sheen at a point in his life as he described as lost, completely hopeless and unable to cope.

This rich Vs poor argument does my head in, I've been arguing with people on this site since I joined that the rich are out of control and the same old argument is always presented...

" they earned it they can do whatever they want with it " , always the same old you dirty socialist angle, yet here we are with those very same people now crying foul about how facebook google twitter and other corporate whoresrun their businesses.... You just can't make this crap up.

It was that or put the most corrupt, morally bankrupt politician in modern history, who's party also has a track record of poor fiscal and social management in charge.

The result so far is much better than the alternative would have been.

As a rags to riches story myself I can tell you 99.9% of the population is poor because they are willing morons and I don't care if you don't like me saying it. It's true, and I'll never be less than a 1%er again.


Peace.

They've also just had a very successful campaign to get some of the lower and middle class to actively do their deeds as well.

There have always been people concervative in nature here, but I've seen a rally call post Trump's election to stand behind the Republicans who many were skeptical about years ago.

I don't blame this on Trump though, he is a symptom.

I think the Tea Party had an impact on this, and also Hillary. She represented this elite establishment as much as any politician. People recognized this and went to the Trump camp.

Societies reaction was to curse anyone who is in the Trump camp and blame all the country's (and much of the world's) woes on them, and Trump.

This only pushed people further in that direction, and is continuing to do so.

After Trump I predict people will gleefully run towards an establishment politician, and the MIC will be back in full force with no opposition. Democrat or Republican.

That’s quite an insult to 99.9% of the population. But demonstrates the mindset of 0.1% very well.

The trouble is when society equates wealth with materialistic financial accumulation rather than health, positive relationships, and contentment. That is real wealth everything else is just an empty shell.

That couldn't have been said better IMO. The believe that the accumulation of wealth will bring happiness is what is wrong with the world and IMO the people who have it would probably admit this as well but they can't b/c of their own greed and ego - so they end up oppressing others either actively or by actions of their own greed.

This isn't to say that all wealth is bad but it has to be balanced with other things and if the wealth comes from the misery, death etc of others, then this can have a very negative effect on people possibly turning them into parasitic psychopaths if they aren't already that to begin with - they basically become numb to the plight of those "lesser beings".

I am wealthy 100 different ways than just money broskie. I have about 3 - 4 g/fs and a loving family life and extended family as well as access to a private plane, pilot, and residences in different states to visit as well as invitations to events. I donate to charity likely what you make in a year. Oh yeah no I got here without helping anyone and not enriching any of the people around me...

Peace.

Yeah I think we all remember reading all the threads where you have to mention all the ways you are so "blessed", you sure weren't last in line when they were handing out ego's.

Who’s Broskie?

Good for you I’m sure your 3-4 g/fs aren’t gold diggers at all and love you for the loyal and devoted person you are in a relationship. Do you sleep with them at the same time or like to keep them separate?

Don’t really know why I’m asking as I couldn’t care less about your personal life, I was talking about society as a whole in my previous post.

Well, that makes very little sense. The MIC are doing very well out of the Trump administration, and so are all the people with whom they conspired to start the war on terror.

So exactly what advantage did you get in that regard? None, is the honest answer.
