This is a defensive measure, on behalf of the Ruling Elites and Oligarchs during times of major political change and upheaval.
By shrinking the size of the available pie, that we all share and eat from, they ratchet up the competition between the masses to fight harder for a
piece of the dwindling pie.
Rather than then focus on, and perhaps, meaningfully work against the people and things causing the political changes and upheavals, you are instead
focused on trying to maintain sustenance, and the competition within your own social/economic strata a peer group for a slice of that pie.
These leaves the elites and their agenda virtually unmolested and unchallenged by the masses, and encourages the divide and conquer, order our of
chaos behavior, that their system of artificial scarcity and hording abundant resources is all about.
Invariably some people, like some posters have already displayed on this thread, will tell us to look towards the lowest possible common denominator,
and to be thankful, that we have yet to hit that rock bottom, versus looking towards the highest possible common denominator, and quantifying and
qualifying, why these machinations are being deployed to our detriment and to what end.
In this fashion, we are then made to in theory be as guilty as those running the system with artificial scarcity.
Eventually though what we have seen, is that the middle class, are being dragged down towards the poverty level, in much greater numbers and a faster
rate and degree, than the poorest are being elevated up.
So in my humble opinion its foolish to look at the poorest of the poor, in any other ways, than to realize, along with us, they too need elevated up,
so it is not parity amongst the bottom rung of society, but parity amongst all rungs of society, with the highest possible quality of life, as the
target to shoot for everyone.
The rich get richer, are more immune if not completely immune to the laws that regulate the rest of us, meanwhile everyone else gets poorer, and more
restricted by the sheer volume of laws to order a society, where artificially induced scarcity, creates chaos through indifference as a way of life.
The system is what’s broke, and above all it’s broken morally.
