I don't think it's the rich who "need to terrorize society" nor that the rich are particularly concerned about that chart. The chart simply shows that as there's less and less money for the working class, there will be more crimes (presumably associated with theft or with some sort of contraband), presumably committed by the non-rich. The rich don't care much if the poor go to prison. And, after a certain point, the poor don't care much either and after a certain point, in the bottom rungs of society, a prison record is simply regarded as a sort of work history.

Guys ... those 1% and 99% terms have come and gone. They died when the OWS movement got hijacked by the far left ... by Soros and the Unions etc etc. There is no 1% or 99% ... and OWS doesn't represent the 99% ... they never did.

That chart makes it look like it's time for another world war
How else will they thin the herd?

Very eye-opening! Thanks for sharing. Just goes to show that the longer that fascist stays in office, the worse off U.S. society will be!

Prisons have become nothing more than another capitalist / corporatist wealth aggregating exercise.
There are of course always a few people that need to be separated from society - but this is way beyond ridiculous. It's absolute tyranny.

Not sure what will change it, but it can't go on forever like this.
@OP thanks for that insightful graph.

One more thing - prohibition has been the secondary institution for enforcement of the societal schism between ultra wealthy and the working class. It feeds the prison system and restricts class mobility on the macro scale. Unfettered capitalism is itself the prime progenitor of this neo-feudalist stratification.

actually the entire system is about money to fund all of the prison and probation system..... get busted for weed in Virginia and you will have to go to a $300 alcohol class and have your license suspended even if you were in oyur bed when you got busted...

it is just about money today....

That is interesting but it's more of the same. The people know about this corruption. We know the scales are offset. When are you people going to quit sreaming "unfair" and actually do something about it. No matter what you post and prove it will not wake people up. Yes that is interesting, but why waste time stating the problem. Why not state some solutions.

You mean the greedy top as in Communist China?... or maybe Socialist/communist India?... Or Maybe Communist North Korea?...What about Communist Cuba?... or socialist/communist Vietnam?... and it is not like the LEFT in the United States, PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS, gave power over the economy of the Republic of the United States to a few SOCIALIST/FASCIST banker elites, The Feds, who implemented the PROGRESSIVE TAXES through their funded IRS as it exists right now and since 1913, and who have been pushing for a One World Socialist/Fascist regime since then... Right?...


Hang in there for what...ANOTHER socialist/fascist or communist dictatorship?...


Kind of ironic that a self-proclaimed "communist" would make the SAME old lies about "socialism/communism will set you free" when in fact it puts EVERYONE in chains "for the good of the "revolution/party/state"...


And wait, I amd PRETTY sure such "self-proclaimed" communist would not have high speed internet, a good computer, the latest gadgets that CAPITALISM can bring to you including his/her latest ipod, etc, etc, etc while much of the rest of the world is in poverty right?...

Money is a tool of control and a weapon of domination...

Money makes this fallen world turn round and unfortunately,the desire for more and more money keeps the vast majority of us getting up in the morning,putting one foot in front of the other...

Tptb and their iron clad,endless stream of laws dont really care if someone is a drug dealer and they dont really give a damn if someone is a prostitute either...

But what most concerns them,consumes them and drives them ever forward,is someone making money without tptb getting some of it and so just about any way that someone is able to make money by doing,is enforced as illegal,if tptb are not receiving a piece of the monetary action...

We are all born into this greed driven society that was set up the wrong ways that it is long before we were here and will most likely be continuing the wrong ways that it is long after we are gone and the vast majority of us are without any choice or say in the posessed by money matters...

As we are made to conform and run tptb's soul shattering rat race,or become homeless,imprisoned or dead and sometimes all three impending fates will befall anyone who dares not comply with the way the beautiful people elites have organized and structured this fallen world...

Known mental defects and ticking time bomb psychopaths are intentionally allowed to roam amongst innocent and normal society,amped up and strung out on government controlled and government pushed psych meds...

Because the crimes they will and do commit are big money makers in the usa,their perpetually viscious assaults, robberies, arsons, rapes and murders keep the judges, lawyers, police, prosecuters, psychiatrists and others immersed in big business...

The vast majority of people who have money to spare,do not go to prison,because they can afford to rent really good lawyers and so they are able to buy their way out again and again...

And so overflowing overfilled jails in the usa are cages for the poor,evil places to keep the deemed behind the scenes undesireable elements of society out of sight and out of mind and a sinisterly designed way for tptb to rake in lots of megabucks for themselves during their nefariously relentless imprisoning process...

I have problems with the chart.

Validity in the numbers can be quite easily tarnished when one cant even spell the word "percent" properly.

It is "percent", not "per cent".

If something that basic is missed,........ you get the point?

I was just wondering how you thought that the chart clearly shows we're reaching the limit where society won't accept this anymore?

The rich will continue to get richer and steal their wealth at the expense of the middle and lower classes.

Charts like this don't bother them, they have never paid attention to anything like this and never will.

There's no error there. "Per cent" is just as valid as "percent", it is used more commonly in England and other English-speaking countries outside of the US.

Per Cent is derived from latin and means "by the hundred". Percent is just a shortened version we use here in America.



Please don't be so quick to dismiss a well-presented argument based on something so trivial.

Actually, both per cent and percent are correct grammar.

I'm no daniel webster,i misspell words all the time,the english language is very confusing to say the least and so why should that have anything vital to do with the issues and the points of this eye and mind opening thread?

Some say that 45% of all statistics are made up on the spot. Others say that's its 87% of statistics that are made up on the spot. And yet still others say that 93% of statistics are made up on the spot? What is the truth....There all true and there all made up and you can create any statistic you wanted to show you exactly that. But personally I think its somewhere along the lines of 99.9% of statistics are made up on the spot.

I never really understood people and there make believes, be it invisible man in the sky, or the isms, or the elite or government or whatever. If you do not like it or them then get rid of them, and that is that, but this things that humans do were they try to convince each other of each others faults is plain bizarre. And the truth is none of them or very few actually want to change things the other 99% as people call them are pretty much as the ones they get all riled up against. Because if they did want to change things and stopped playing the game instead of just procrastinating over nothing and playing the same old games. Well they would of by now, and the whole thing would change.

But as you can see the old adage the throne sits on top of mud, and mud sits on the throne is pretty much true, and thats why the more things change the more they stay the same. But luckily the world does not revolve around such things, but every living thing on it and in it thinks that it revolves around there pathetic make believe worlds, and yet each and every-time there surprised that there world crumbles to dust every time reality turns a beat or skips a beat.

But whatever, good point on the for profit prisons systems going on now a days, but when everything becomes a job and for sale, what else can anything be but for profit.
Its funny how many things going on in this world that have the term "good" is nothing but a thinly disguised racket, I suppose its the cheese at the middle of the maze just waiting for the mouse. Or the carrot dangling at the end of the string, pulling carts forward and the first thing anybody learns is that pretty much all and any of the free and good things in life even love, is all basically just a racket or lure to catch them unsuspecting fishes.

I suppose its like it says in the knowledge of good and evil. That in the duality of creation's all is falseness, only the illusion of choice is singular in that you have no choice but to chose.
The law of confusion, or the law of free will, as its called to those who are confused.

And things will move on etc because that is were it was designed to go, so lets label things that way it will be less boring during transitions.

Thank you and others for the correction.

And please dont be so quick to dismiss my observations or suggestions.

'Trivial' is but an individual subjective observation.

Thank You.
