See, this is something I find that people don't think about: if she doesn't make money, neither does her employees. So, she could just shut
down her businesses tomorrow--all of them! She doesn't need them. Some of her upper tier could survive without having to work ever again, so they
could just ignore the loss of jobs. Frankly, killing a "wealthy pig" results in the same answer. No job loss, even the crappy "extortionist" ones we
have now, will fix a damn thing. You need infrastructure to replace it, and few if any of the armchair quarterbacks out there on the internet are set
1. Survive a lack of infrastructure.
2. Survive a loss of a job for more than a month.
3. Have the skills to control their spending. Sorry, if you don't have the money to get out of the financial bind an evil job has over you, and you
still have cable, don't eat cheaply or minimally, don't grow your own food, conserves energy expenditure, avoid debt, ect. (Yes, some of this is
unavoidable, but come on, almost everyone I know who complains about money has some sort of indulgence that could save them money--sometimes BIG
money, by not indulging in it. You are selling your future for today!)
4. Have the capacity to provide better jobs for others, themselves. Sorry, if you can't employ 1 person, you're just as much a problem.
And I state this while fully well knowing I'm failing this, right now. So this is not about pointing fingers at anyone.
So, yeah, let's go after the fatcat's Government bonds of fiat money that can crumble overnight. We'll still have nothing.
