Now I hear this phrase banded about a lot, especially amongst those of a "certain" Political affiliation.
And this is normal thrown at the poor and unemployed.
But I never here these same people throw it the other way towards the rich?
If anything they seem to be rather defensive of the rich and powerful.
Why is that? Shouldn’t they be held accountable for their actions and have certain responsibility’s?
Or once you earn a certain amount are you free from responsibility and even the same laws us mortals live under?
We can take the obvious and look at the bankers and politicians and the financial crash and situation we (US, UK and most of the west) are dealing
with now. They conducted illegal/Dishonest and corrupt practices that in most country if a regular business owner did they would be fined and fined
heavily with most our assets striped and most likely thrown in prison. And not to mention all the tax evasion. Shouldn’t you be calling for their
heads along with the unemployed and poor?
Also you can’t deny money=power right? Hundred million airs, Billion airs, and even some celebrities weld allot of power. Just look at your local
Congress and Parliament or mayors and governor I’m sure a good majority are at least in the 10 million + club.
Look at Mayor of the USA Bloomberg, he is what the 14th richest man and he has the power to ban coke in the land the "free"!
Also it not just politicians big CEO and bankers who company deal in billions weld great power! A mistake or reckless move can cost thousands of jobs
or cause a giant economic crash that can go as far as cost lives!
Surely that’s power! And with power comes RESPONSIBLITY!
So surely those at the top should be held to that RESPONSIBLITY with reckless behaviour and neglect of RESPONSIBLITY resulting in huge life ruining
penalties! If failure of the poor to live up to their responsibility should earn them a wrecked miserable life, surely the same should be said for the
Also should 1 human or even a small group be even able to weld such huge amounts of power like the big players do now?
