The old saying "It takes money to make money" comes to mind.
They (PTB) have this all gamed out a hundred ways from Sunday -
- If the populace rebels they institute martial law and gain more.
- Same goes for any socialist or communist movement.
- working "with the system" only leads to band aid legislation with no real teeth to punish the guilty.
Whatever happens the rich will not suffer. If things get bad enough they will simply move to one of their other houses in some other country. Flying
on private jets with multiple passports they can go anywhere they darn well please unlike 99% of the population,
If the police fail to protect them they can always hire private security contractors that somehow have license to run around in public with automatic
weapons without fear of arrest by authorities (see Katrina).
As science and technology further develop methods of mass control and manipulation those with the $ will gain even more control than they have now.
This has but one result in the end - a permanent ownership class and a slave class. The middle class is nearly dead and will be gone within 20
I'm not an advocate for wealth redistribution but I do advocate for a fairer tax structure say where you would pay no income tax on the first $20 -
30,000 of what you make annually as you need that to pay bills (like mortgages).
This would keep many on the edge of financial disaster solvent and prevent them from going on public assistance.
The very rich and corporations have so many tax loopholes that they often end up with a negative
tax balance. This needs correcting. There;s no
reason why they should not be taxes on everything they earn ::cough:: earn, really?
But that's another question.
None of this will happen though we might be led to believe that such a movement is happening simply to keep the masses quiet.
I have never had less hope for the world than I do now. I thank God I've had a great life but I have little faith that my children or grandchildren
will enjoy the freedom or material benefits that I've had. The dream is vanishing and with it our very humanity.
The rioters in London are called animals and thugs for stealing while those in high leadership positions make huge sums basically the same way and are
rewarded for their deceit and malfeasance. And we wonder why nihilism is fast becoming the world's biggest philosophy in the industrialized world.
