I am making this post as a follow on from my previous one here
because I approached that
thread from the wrong angle, and while I recieved alot of support and critisism I have heard everyone's opinions and I would like to say my post was
wrong - I should'nt of said no one deserves to earn more than $250,000 a year. I should have taken a more broad approach and this is my attempt to
correct what I have said..
- I found myself repeating myself alot so I have decided to once again take the time to visually discribe what I see as the problem and see if I can
incorporate where I felt I was going wrong in to it...
The financial system is holding us all back. We are all drowning in the ocean struggling to stay afloat, everyone is trying to hold everyone else down
to survive this happens directly or indirectly. This is not your fault - the financial system is designed so that over time a smaller minority can
climb higher than the majority, money makes money - this is fact.
We are reaching a point where so many are on the bottom supporting a heavy few up the top that pyramid iteslf is begining to fail.
To those on top and doing well, we can not blame you, I should not have taken the approach in my last post but I have learned from my mistakes. Most
of us on the bottom would be guilty of holding others down to stay afloat too if given the chance to get up the top - it is human nature. At some
point you may have had to work hard to get where you are. So instead of talking about redistributing the wealth and swapping places all I ask is those
at the top start using your voice to guide us all to land.
Start by researching where money comes from (video here
), see the system for what it is, realise
that not everyone can be on the top because of the systems design and when that causes people to lose their lives it is not right.
Nobody in this world deserves a mansion, farrari, or beach house when their are people dying of thirst and hunger - I never should have put a figure
on it because living costs vary too - you can continue to lie to yourself that you have earned the right through hard/smart work but at the end of the
day some people can not work hard or smart without funds to get started. Tell a starving kid searching through rubbish for food in Africa he just
needs to keep positive and work a bit harder/smarter.. Some of you are now thinking what does Africa have to do with any America or my 1st world
country - well it is exactly the same, there are people who can not afford education to get a job - this is why there are riots in the UK, there are
people that can not even afford the good clothes for a job.
Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names, Less than one per cent of what the world spent every year
on weapons was needed to put every child into school by the year 2000 and yet it didn’t happen. This is not because they are lazy, it is because
they do not stand a chance -
meanwhile, the wealth of the three most well-to-do individuals now exceeds the combined GDP of the 48 least developed countries
The people up top need to stop thinking they deserve to eat $1000 meals while someone else struggles to even find water. If you have food and shelter
you are wealthy and need to start speaking up for those who dont.
Once all the people of this world have the basics to support their right to live then you can start to claim you deserve to earn more than others.
