The top 1% of the world’s wealthiest own more than half of the world’s wealth. They also have now created a system in which they are allowed to earn infinite amounts of interest on their wealth at absolutely zero self induced RISK. Their risk has now been entirely relegated to the State and its majority of investing members…We the People. So they have all the reward/profits of global markets and fabricated financial schemes and if they are ever to “screw up”, they have the state redistribute the PEOPLE’S/STATE investments amongst themselves. They have a giant state funded safety net that allows them the freedom to exist and act freely, they can sit back and enjoy all the abundant wealth and luxury of a super productive capitalist society. This is pretty much Socialism. Well …in their own circles.

We spend almost all of our money on objects whose profits end up in the pockets of the rich, our savings accounts do not earn interest, yet collectively allow the rich to enjoy infinite interest on playing with them, as a giant pool of “free funds” or zero percent loans from our treasury. The majority of the products we are given the “freedom to choose” from are in fact in some shape or form actually further hindering our own well-being. Lets be clear..’Freedom to choose’ is not LIBERTY. This consumers paradise, is creating an ecological nightmare. All of our buying, and driving, and overeating is quickly degrading our planet past rehabilitation. And the top 1% know all about it but try to misdirect us with garbage science and bogus propaganda, and keep the profits rolling in. Continue reading
