Bo, why not set aside your prejudices for a short time and think openly.... Perhaps you can conceptualize the thought that these people, though
wealthy, want to help humanity. Perhaps they genuinely care about improving life on this planet. Now for one moment, explain how YOU would accomplish
that feat if you had the wealth of the alleged elite? Remember that you can't force compliance and there are an awful lot of egos in this world.

The thing is, we haven't seen a lot of evidence of this. In fact, we've seen tons of evidence to the contrary
. Lots of huge corporations make
choices that benefit themselves far more than humanity as a whole. The massive levels of corruption in the medical and pharmaceutical
industries, as well as the prison industrial complex, the military industrial complex, and the so-called "War on Drugs" are all great examples / proof
Sure, some billionaires engage in "philanthropy." But they probably only give away about as much as they can deduct from their taxes, and/or to
charities which serve their agendas in some way.
No-- if the guys at the top were highly benevolent creatures, we'd be living in a very different world right now. Even the sheer fact that many
ridiculously wealthy companies like wal-mart don't even want to pay their legions of workers (on whose backs, and by whose sweat their very profits
are reaped) a fair and liveable wage, is ample evidence that the people running the show are far more greedy and self-serving than benevolent and
The modern corporatist
version of capitalism is a cancer
on this planet, the way it is currently practiced.
: Wait... there's a point
to "Fatty boom Boom?" Like... genuine coherent message and meaning? Huh. I guess you
learn something every day.
Love that video, though.
