Wow.

I know for a fact a lot of people hardly want to believe that the elite ruling this world could actually be crazy enough to do some sort of conspiracy towards its own people. They will think about man like Hitler and say to themselves: 'Oh it's just an isolated case, no need to worry!'.

I say complete bul..

The kind of thinking like the one you will see in this video is exactly what is predominating in the mind of the richest people all around the globe.
It is actually what is killing this wonderful planet just as we speak.

Something seriously needs to be done about these legal criminals.

Wow....

WOW... Just... Wow... Ok. This person, this O'Leary fellow, is going to be about as popular as ebola virus from here on out, if there is any justice what so ever. How can anyone look at the statistic that was being discussed, and say "Oh really? Thats great news! Lets have a barbeque to celebrate! We can call all the kids from the projects, and have them look over next doors fence at us, enjoying salmon steaks and caviar on crackers."

Just so we are clear, there is no way to celebrate the 85 people on that list, while remaining aware of the fact that their collecting wealth in the way they do, is partially responsible for the plight of the less well off, both in the Western developed world, and in the third world. You cannot celebrate the worst excesses of capitalism, without celebrating the starvation and death of the worlds poorest people, because one creates the circumstances which allow the other. This O'Leary bastard is either deluded, or evil. I do not care which, I just hope he suffers an ironic twist in his fortunes which re-educates him as to the way of the world.

That is so disturbing I cant even begin to respond to it, there is just nothing to work with here.

When nearly half the worlds population is in actual starvation, as in seriously starving to death, these 85 people have as much as all of them combined.

As many people as fit in one medium sized passenger plane have more resources than all of china and India combined, and this not job thinks that is awesome...........sorry gotta go throw up now.

He and all of them will at some point. Never forget Mary Antuinette, or however you spell the wicked witch that said of her starving people " let them eat cake".

I think the assets of the 85 people are overly-appraised by people who have a poor sense of value.

To the average person, which is truly more valuable: a farm capable of feeding a large population of people, or a company on the fortune 500?

In my opinion, they do not have more wealth than the 3.5 billion others.

But playing along with the notion that they do have more wealth, or that what might influence the wicked, is wealth, then yeah, that guy has lost his sense of what is good. He has become corrupted by the green eyed monster, so to speak... but I do not envy, nor an I angered by him, or the 85 people -- I feel bad for them. It is a horrible thing to be trapped inside that way of thinking, as it corrupts you, and everyone who looks in your direction.

First of all he is not part of the 85 but a wanna be who do not play in their league and it seems his so called wealth comes from fooling Mattel in a deal.

www.torontolife.com...

But his attitude seem to be telling of what rich people think and the insane greed that follows.

When you create suffering for another being by manipulating them (including creating and maintaining systems that manipulate them) then you are creating karma. This karma needs to be resolved and repaid to be free again.

Imagine a person living 100 years controlling 10 million people for 50 years and being the sole reason for these 10 million people suffering due to lack of basic needs and depressions since the future is bleak for them.

50*10 million=500 million years of suffering to pay back. And fixing suffering can take a lot longer than creating them. These people that are enslaving people in economic enslavement do not know that they are at the same time enslaving themselves in a karma enslavement that they will suffer under for a extremely long time.

It's Fantastic!!


It's like the Sotchi Olympic Games, 51 BIILIONS!!!
How much is needed to feed the third world for a year? 100 000 000$ ?!
But don't panic Kevin O'Leary said that ANYBODY can become rich and have their place in the 1%. If they want they can!
YES WE CAN!

Did anyone get the impression that he's playing a character role that people expect of him?

Have you ever seen him on Shark Tank?

I'm not sure he's really this stupid.

Maybe. But does it matter to the most viewers who will see this and think he is part of the 85 people who owns half the wealth. The ones who are the 85 people must be pretty pissed off at him since he is in his own way proving a point the 85 persons do want to avoid.

In a way he is in fact a force for putting limits on greed since his way of clumsily saying makes people go completely the opposite direction from him. From conspiracy point of view: Maybe he is a closet communist who is manipulating us towards a more fair society by playing a capitalist thug with not morals who would sell his mother for a cent.

Taking it even further. People confuse the elite-controllers with the "1%" , 71,300,000 people worldwide, 3,150,000 people in the US.

Does this guy play a role as a pawn to the elite-controllers, as a means stir up the pot, and get the rest pissed off at mere upper middle class people?

I think so, it's an end-game tactic to keep the people fighting each other while the biggest gangsta's continue to syphon off what little is left in the gas tank, then floor it into a new land.

Same game, different generation.

Would you be so kind as to help me understand that figure?

I don't know how many people are considered to be "Third world," but assuming it's only China and India, and that half of their population is doing fine, that's still over a billion people. Be generous, round it down to one billion people who are in the third world.

The number you presented would give 10 cents per person, per year. That's not going to feed them.

Let's say there are 1.5 billion people in need of food worldwide.

Seeing as the USD buys a lot in many other countries, I'm thinking it would be less than 1,000 USD per year on average to feed these people.

That's 1.5T

The global GDP is what, 60T?

So that's 1/40th the global GDP, or 2.5%.

How much do we spend on military?

It's doable.

This needs to get out to as many people as possible, but re-write it as he really means it. "Those 3.5 BILLION people all 'deserve' to be poor,hungry and dieing because they haven't worked hard enough"
Let the world hear this monsters sick and twisted words.

1. Mary Antoinette

2. She never actually said that.

3. The starvation of the French populace had nothing to do with her, but she was a convenient scape-goat to take the rap for a stacking succession of bad economic decisions by various kings in addition to their stupid, expensive wars.

4. Even if she did say that, she's got nothing on this deluded asswhipe.

Well now...

Isn't that an interesting thought. I'll have to put that in my bag of perspectives as well. I had not considered such a thing; even though it seems intuitive enough as a possibility doesn't it just...? Thanks for that.

What he should have said:

"...Of course it's terrible that there's such an income disparity between so few of the wealthy and so many of the poor, but does the disparity itself give the poor of the world the right to DEMAND that the rich throw their money at them like Jack Nicholson as the Joker in Batman?"

Robbing Peter to pay Paul doesn't work, and that's all this guy is saying, in the end. He didn't say it in the right way, and I don't think I've ever seen him before this vid, but showbiz is showbiz. Maybe he meant something and it came out different. Maybe he said what he said to sensationalize the show. Outlandsh statements = attention these days.

The bottom line is, you could take all those rich people they're talking about, butcher them all, confiscate their money, distribute it evenly (like that would really happen), and it won't make a bit of difference to anyone for any significant period of time because of the massive debt in the world, and the world won't suddenly become a utopia, because it would have succumbed to the emotions of economics instead of the science behind economics, and that's for sure a losng recipe for any viable economic stability for the near future after whenever these ingenious "wealth confiscation plans" (gee, no one ever thought of that before) take place.

Oh well, I'm safe. Nice and poor and not in danger of the wealth confiscators and redistributors (see: communists). I still don't blame anyone else but myself. I sure as hell don't blame the rich guy down the street who busted his ass in school while I was playing my guitar for hours and hours instead of doing my homework. But hey, I guarantee you, I'm a much better guitar player than he is, and probably have been with way more women than him too.


Most of us choose our path in life. No, not the tiny, starving African child waiting for the first meal in a week, but most of the rest of us so called "poor" with our smart phones and Xboxes, and laptops and our cable internet connections. Stop blaming people who you never met for your misery. It's an old game and in the end, the only ones who come out on top are the Stalins of the world, who will rule with an iron fist because they have no conscience and are paranoid lunatics with a thirst for ultimate power and the drive and cunning to achieve it.

The massive world debt is the problem, not individual rich people. If you want to blame someone, blame the politicians who spend money we don't have, and blame ourselves for continuing to elect the same irresponsible, power hungry morons.

Don't fear the wealthy, per se. Fear the person who is so wealthy, that wealth has become a bore to them, and the only way they can get fullfilment from life is to amass political power for themselves and lord that power over the rest of us. It's the final thing that gets them off. Don't blame the rich for bribing politicians, blame the politicians, our public SERVANTS, for accepting those bribes and payoffs, thinking they're kings who need not answer to anyone for their malfeasance.
