What would happen if we got rid of the 99%? (99% referring to the middle and lower class families.)

With magic. *Poof!* all gone over night.

Who will now do all the dirty work? The less desirable work. Taking out the trash. Cleaning the toilets. Cutting down those sugar canes.

Since everyone is somewhat evenly wealthy. How do we create segregation between who manages and who actually does the labor?

Race? Gender? Age?

Makes sense that the younger should do all the physical manual labor. The elderly can just sit back and tell them what to do.

Would people even get paid anymore? The top 1% atm never really worried about income or anything. They just always had money.

There would become a new 99% .. That sort of class separations will always exist ..

The reason being is that there's always going to be people who like to get their hands dirty and do things like construction, there's always people who are going to want to put out fires, build things.. There are always going to be people who would rather work under a leader than lead .. those people will almost always drift to the lower pay grade.. and that's unfortunate.. so a new 99% would eventually form.

The biggest crime is that those doing the hard work aren't paid what that work is worth..

Do you know who would do all the work?

I have an answer: Robots, machines, technology.

We don't control any of the real technological resources, in essence the people who control technology don't need us anymore, so we are being thrown away like a piece of garbage.

They can kill 99% of us and they would be fine with their robots to do the work for them, unfortunately in the long run this would be a bad idea as they would forget how to maintain their machines.

I hope everything turns out ok.

You say robots and machines will solve their manual labor problems but who is going to invent them? Who is going to build them? Surely not the 1% corp execs and ceos and such. Scientists and mechanics all belong in the 99% right?

Without the 99% there would be no 1%. Population control would be foolish.

I agree. Humans are a resource, if we were allowed to reach our full potential there's no limit to what we can accomplish.

TPTB need the population cut down to a more managable size. How are they going to enfore microchipping on a population of over 7 billion people? They can't. For one thing it would be a bit expensive. And the people will not respond too kindly to being slaves.

Hence the upcoming World War 3 and their new and improved Avian Flu virus. Plus we have the added bonus of Butthead Obama signing the NDAA law taking all liberties, freedoms and rights away from the people whilst they were partying and wishing each other a Happy New Year and prosperous 2012. What a lovely New Year gift!

So, how are they going to arrest, detain, incarcerate and kill innocent people. And who will be in their sights?

Conspracy theorists and followers of conspiracies, people who own guns and refuse the give them up, survivalists, people who refuse vaccines, people who refuse to be chipped, people who bad mouth the reps in the whitehouse, people who don't believe the official story of 9/11.........the list will be large.

2012 is the first year of the official existence of an American Police State.

World War 3 and deliberatly released Flu pandemics will get rid of some of the 99% worldwide.

I watched a documentary a few years ago called 'Esoteric Agenda'. At first I thought it was a bit far fetched. Talking about De-population, Codex Alimentarius, Flouride Poisoning of the water supplies, Detention in FEMA camps, Microchipping etc. But looking at it now it's all true. Even David Ickes theories in the early nineties have come true.

So, getting rid of the 99% will happen. And it will happen soon.

Take off your tinfoil hats Boys and Girls! They don't work!!

They don't have to enforce, they can just use fear.

Oh no! A super deadly virus has surfaced. Everyone quick take this free vaccine that our government has ever so kindly provided us! Place a chip inside the vaccine. Everyone takes it willingly. Tada you have your slaves.

Or they really can enforce. Don't take our vaccine like we told you to, you are a TERRORIST therefore you must be locked up in one of our FEMA camps.

As for money manufacturing... really? I seriously doubt "money" would be a problem for the world elites. Its not something they had worried about before, not something they worry about now, definitely not in the future.

Getting rid of the 99%


People are not the same. There is no 99% that are like this and a 1% like that. The concept you refer to is entirely political... so it really carries no weight beyond the political.

In a nutshell, you will never find more than the most minuscule fraction of the human race that you can so easily stereotype with any precision. Our species is just too dynamic. And if you reduce the equation to economics alone, then you reduce the weight of the equation in value.

It's a cute slogan but beyond that, it really doesn't mean much.

Cheers

Robots, my friend. Robots. The 99% will be C-3P0s and SexBot9000s. Japan is already well ahead on this development.

My vote goes to having machines for these jobs, and more.

When you hypothetically suggest that the 99% is gone, what do you mean? As in the people cease to exist or the classes are to dissolved leaving everyone equal?

Who repairs the machines? can't be a human as why would they work, or are you forcing some people to work? so it would have to be a machine but who would repair that machine? another machine which would need repairs from another machine. Then who would monitor the machines? again can't be a human unless your forcing some people to work so it would be a machine that is monitored by another machine etc

Machines could repair the machines.

I don't know what kind of world this would be anyway. I wouldn't want to never have any work to do. I plan to work until I am physically incapable.

As far as monitoring the machines, I would volunteer
, if the rest of you are really all that lazy.

You would 24/7 while everyone else is dong what they want to do? I can't see that lasting long dosen't matter who you are and we would need billions of people who would be up for that which would create a seperate class.

Lovely. 1% of 7 billion = 70, 000, 000.
That is roughly the population of Thailand.
en.wikipedia.org...
.

It is estimated that the population of the world reached one billion for the first time in 1804.

en.wikipedia.org...

It is basically a Mad Max scenario. Some of the 1% that survived the magic Poof! will be psychopaths and the cycle will start all over again.

I guess you misunderstood my
. You can't trust me to monitor the machines, and I don't believe you could trust anyone else for that matter.


Aside from that, I don't understand why anyone would expect to not have to work according to our abilities. I don't believe there is an acceptable reason why anyone would not want to work either. Other than they are not getting treated or rewarded well.

I don't have to work now as it is. I am pretty much set for life. However, I volunteer 30+ hours a week.

Well not since they will be creating their casless society. Money is worthless anyway. It's just credit on a bit of paper.
