One of two things will happen. Or, more correctly, the first thing MAY happen, but the second one definitely will, it's just a matter of time.

First, the people will become slaves. Followed, at some point, with the rich being hunted down and killed.

This is why the elite want to see ANY strife that isn't rich versus poor. They would be happy to see black versus white, liberal versus conservative, unions versus management, etc., etc., etc.

ANYTHING as long as it isn't rich versus poor.

Their wealth is only as valuable as the paper that it is printed on. If the economy completely collapses along with the value of the dollar, they will have nothing.

Their assets such as yachts, jets, real estate, cars etc., only have value if someone is willing and able to buy them at full value. If Mr. X needs cash bad enough and is selling his Gulf Stream jet to get it, he'll take what he can get for it.

I think this answers your own question.

Except there won't be pleading or begging, it will simply be "do as you are told", or die.


I agree with you.
Once it was do as you are told or die.
In fact once it was just die for the hell of it, if we say, even if we didn't tell you to do anything.
Then it evolved to, go through due process before you die, and even then, you still might not die.
We might have to pay for you to live for the rest of your life.
They want it back the old way, hanging beheading summary execution, no more due process, no more paying for you to live, just die.

Total area of earth : 148,940,000 km² land

Plenty of land to go around. Its the flow of money that some people are concerned with.

HRH QE2 isn't all that rich. £300 odd million... lower than JK Rowling.

Dont think we would have much choice if she wanted us off her land though.

Also:

The value of her land holding. £17,600,000,000,000 (approx).

This makes her the richest individual on earth.

I know this is an estimated value and she would not be able to go down to the estate agent and put it on the market.

But you have to admit it is still a pretty sum.
