What is poor?
Seems to me that wasting energy, having more things than you need, and piling up money to the extreme that you could never spend it all should be
against the law. The reason that these people need all this money is precisely to keep the rest of us in an uncomfortable state. A good many aspects
to these peoples lives are crimes against future humanity and should be seen this way.
The answer is not in taking away their money. The hungry children of the world do not want their money, they want to learn how to grow, manage and
store their own food. they want to be able to travel to a safe place where they can build a home and raise children. They want to do this in a manner
that leaves no waste and does not dirty up the countryside. This will never happen if half of the earths produce ends up in the landfill every day.
It is the one percent that employ these harmful, wasteful, and dangerous practices. If we just come down on them hard and hold them responsible for
the rest of us, they may have no choice but adapt to more energy efficient, productive practices. My Grandparents generation did not waste the energy
from a single plant or animal that came off the farm. the practices that they used to manage and store food were far superior than the ones used
today. They lived during the peak of civilization in this way.
The problem here is that while their lifestyles had reached a state of self sustaining independence, our has come to the place where we have almost
completely lost these skills and we like piglets, suck from the tits of the one percent. They take our hard work and skills and sell it back to us at
jacked up prices with interest.
WE have to separate ourselves from this cannibalism. The mother 1% will lay down and feed us until we have destroyed the planet, because she has only
to live for one lifetime, hers, she does not care for the future of her children or the earth.
We have to bring back the farming practices of the 20th century. We have to relearn how to store food. We can use technology to our advantage,
managing our practices so that we use every drop of energy that our crops provide. We have to make laws that punish those who would throw away a whole
crop of tomatoes simply because the color is not right for the supermarket!
Our future, and that of our children depends on us to stop wasting valuable energy and resources.
It could become profitable for the 1% if they took their industry and flipped a few cogs and sprockets to design a more balanced system for the rest
of us. They would never have to give away any money. The poor people of the world do not need it, they need to become self sufficient.
