I read somewhere a few years back that if all the money in the U.S, was divided equally amongst it's citizens that everyone would be a millionaire but within 1 years time that 75% of the people that are broke now would be broke again.

how about everybody's bank account be credited with 1 billion dollars. the federal reserve can print 6 billion one billion dollar notes deposit it into a federal reserve bank and transfer that money electronically.

the only problem with that is that everybody would stop working and we'd all starve to death. every house would crumble because every carpenter, contractor and plumber would be retired. money and wealth would be worthless and pointless.

that is the true nature of wealth and the economic system. it is a means of calculated control to have essential services, food and products as well as luxuries.

Spreading out the wealth is a horrible idea. Only a simplistic fool would honestly believe that if everyone was a millionaire, they'd all be well off. If everyone had a million dollars in their checking account, a gallon of gas would cost 50 bucks. You would be increasing the amount of money in the greater economy.

You know what.. just listen to Scrooge McDuck, he explained it so that even an idiot child would understand. The video is applied specifically to the FED, but the principal is the same.

this sharing equally thing would last more than a minute anyway would never work.

if the worlds wealth was shared equally...and someone then goes and buys a cola from the corner shop...that shop owner now has more money than the customer. and thats just 1 small transaction. times that by the almost 7 billion people on earth and it wouldnt be long before all the money was back unequal and in the hands of the elite.

and with the land...lets just say for simples sake that everyone on earth had 5 acres of land...and as more people are being born than dying whos land do these new people get when they grow up? what happens when someone only wants 3 acres and sells the other 2 to someone else...it wouldnt be long before its all unequal again and back in the hands of the elites.

The pope owns all the land nobody else does




The pope’s main goal was to try and control all the lands of the world under the doctrine he is the ‘vicar of christ’, using the myth of jesus christ to achieve this. Placing him at the top of the chain and by using the myth to his and who he serves benefit, he would proclaim that he was the owner of all lands on behalf of jesus, until such time as jesus would return and he would supposedly hand it all back to him. Contained within this is every living breathing creature including us

you better hope and pray jesus isn't a myth.
things will get real dang ugly if he is. his teaching is what has kept billions of people down thru history,
docile and forgiving. without that stabliizing influence, TOTAL chaos, would ensue.

So if we divided all the land up someone said everyone would get about 5 acres?

So do I get my 5 acres in death Valley, on the Vegas strip or what?

How about I just send in my request of where I want it. I would gladly rope off 5 acres in a national forest next to a river and be more than happy.

Maybe someone answered this already, but there is approximately 6.8 bil. people and 52 mil. square miles of habitable landmass so each person would get roughly 7.6 square miles to themselves. Hmmm I'll take it!!! If I lived with my immediate family and close friends we could share, nearly 400 sq. miles...plenty enough to still live near your inlaws without having to see them that often!

Simple.
Hey that's not too bad because the average yearly salary worldwide is about 7000. Sounds like a pay increase for a lot of people. Pretty pathetic isn't it.



EXACTLY the ONLY people who wouldn't be happy with that are the rich ass holes who are greedy pigs.
id take a lower wage or whatever if it meant NOONE went hungry .


I'm not rich and not an asshole, but i would not be happy with my family going from a combined income of $85,000 down to $21,142, so I'm meant to go to work and bust my ass and get given the same crappy amount as someone in Africa or wherever sitting on their but doing nothing all day ? reality check matey,most people in developed countries would be unhappy with this,

Problem with that is you don't get money unless you work. You have to do something to get money. So even people in developed countries have to work to keep their lifestyles. If everyone was free, those who are working have no incentive to do anything of value, because hey, you get everything all the same whether you contribute or not.

Also with 2, people would just breed more until there are too many mouths to feed or the continual redistribution of wealth approaches 0 and again people will starve.

Due to modern technology, Digital Money is so easy for one computer to tranfer a few a few ones and zeros to another computer.

This is basically how a Cheque works, the Cheque just authorizes one computer to transfer a bunch of Ones and Zeros from One Computer to another one.

Would it be so wrong for a Virus to start adding zeros into every Bank Account. It's no different to what Benanke is doing, the only difference is the Jew Masters don't make a profit from it. But then it wouldn't matter because they can just add more zeros into their own accounts. I want to buy a new ferarri but don't have enough money, no proplem I'll just add more zeros to my account, Bazinga.

divide it FAIRLY????????


What the hell is FAIR? You mean to tell me that you wanna take ALL the money earned by HARD WORKING individuals and give it to lazy bums who set on their ass and have 9 children, going to walmart standing in line with WIC and food stamps, taking up everyones time because they're too lazy to get a job?

Thats not fair. Thats called dividing it EQUALLY.

And no - we dont need to divide it. Get a job.

Thank you Ghost Viking, Fantastic Video,

Water.... or fresh drinking water for the western world really is (look at some of my previous posts) one of the major topics (IMO) of the next 5 years. Oil will either run out or People will demand cleaner produce for power therefore making oil EXTINCT, What will the rich then have to inflate prices for the people??????. I can not find the link but will search for the evidence that the E.U and the U.S are purposly allowing Reservoirs and other manmade water storage programmes to depleat or cut funding, Bewl water in England is one such example www.highbeam.com... Again any story regarding drinking water shortage is not the easiest to find and most people will class the thoughts i have as crazy concerning this issue.

I would how ever be interested in the Australian feed back on this issue as i beleive your MSM has on numerous occasions made suggestions that drinking water is running out in your country..... Please do not think for one second that i was trying to add a joke about the Australian floods as i am deadly serious. I read some where in a book or thread that OZ was going to be the first place we would see inflated drinking water prices. If food and drinking water go up in price the poplace would struggle and again this leads to Egypt/Tunisia type scenarioes where the peeps are sick of just working and having F**K all to show for it. All the time the Elite are living in homes fit for Gods and in countries like mine we would not be allowed the Freedom to protest as they are in the East. Marshall Law?? Me in the Klink for having radical views??? my Mrs and kids?????? Who knows!


The problem in Oz is that the left and the greens a dead against building more dams, we have had drought here for a lot of years,but the drought appears gone and our water levels are ok ATM,most states are building desalination plant's as well ,as for the floods well the area's that flooded are prone to floods,same as the cyclones it's cyclone season up north,my state has bush fires most summers but thats normal,i really think something extremely drastic would need to happen in Australia to see an Egyptian type scenario,Australian's are generally happy with their lives and such and wont be going on the march any time soon,people will be disappointed that Aussie's are generally happy with their lives and don't want a revolution (a very small % would as is normal in any country) but that's not our problem ,

It would make no difference. You will always have those who want more, and as they say a fool and his money are soon parted.

No,without that,total freedom would ensue.

We,have never known this thing.

That is why we fight it.

God,and Jesus are a myth.

Faith keeps freedom from becoming reality.

Here's what would happen if the entire worlds funds were to be distributed evenly among every living person.

The people who has the wealth now would reclaim it within several years. It's like this. Some people will gamble it away while others would become bookies. Some people have addiction problems (alcohol, drugs and sex) and would waste any money given to them to pleasure themselves.

After several years, we'd be back to where we started. The filthy rich being filthy rich and the down and out poor being the down and out poor.

If you care so much, then why are you sitting there in front of your computer (which most of these starving 3rd world people have never so much as seen) pushing your socialist agenda instead of getting up off your tush and joining the Peace Corps or Project Hope or one of those other "foundations" set up to "end world hunger"? Bill Gates is working on this, isn't he? Brad Pit and Angelina Jolie? DO something! You're haranging other people that *they* should do something- what are YOU doing?
Here. I'll give you a start. www.dinnergarden.org Their concept is to help people grow their own gardens, *wherever they are* and SHARE their excess produce with others.
Ten bucks says you won't touch it because this is about collectivism (AKA socialism/ communism) and NOT your stated purpose at all.


see my next post...

Yeah, I thought about that part, but that wasn't what he was asking. Would be hard to grow a garden if your 5 acres were on the side of a rock cliff also. I am sure it would be done with a fair lottery drawing for everyone
.


lol at rock cliff , dude if my 5 acres is fertile id give u 1 , 5 acres and someone else 1.5 i still got 2 acres but i dont have to work as much i can chill more lol win win


Not to easy to "misunderstand" or "misrepresent" this. *I wouldn't have to work as much. I win"

How altruistic of you.
Why don't you people form your own country or go to Venezuela or China or something? I'm sure they would welcome their new comrades with open arms.

I hate to put poo in anyones Pinata, but the whole concept of currency is an illusion.

We all are surrounded by the wealth in each other and a truly loving Earth that can provide all we need and sustain us indefinitely. We just have to evolve beyond the zombie brain dead sheep stage and make it happen.

We've sold our freedoms away for baubles of false security. Get that back and you are rich indeed. Actually, if we educate our children in stead of indoctrinating and diffusing their creativity, we can watch them grow to find ways of providing all our needs through understanding and creative intelligence. It is the most wasted undervalued resource our species has. They will take us to the stars and heal our bodies and our illnesses, and re-teach us how to honor the love of our Earth that provided our existence.

When we pass on, we do not think about the so-called wealth of money. It is the gems of all the moments of a fully lived life with our loved ones that we cannot bear to loose, or, it is the regrets for their lack of appreciating all the gifts that are free to all.

The Great Wizards behind the curtains of massive economies, banks, massive world wide corporations are also the creators of the robber barons and corrupt leaders of their countries. Pity the star chambers of detached demigod pretenders fully under the illusions their own lies. They are frail and empty without the same things we all can have. All their billions of dollars can't buy them courage, a brain, a heart or Love.

Wake up sleepy-heads. The richest things are free. Share them with everyone.

So, you see, it is divided equally ("fairly") between us already.

OK, whack that Pinata. It's filled with hope.


ZG

I thought this thread was about wealth, not money. You can print more money but that will make no one wealthier.
