Let's see - who put in the systems which forced the expenditures to be allocated as now? Oh - that would be the rich.
Who causes all the planetary problems? Oh - that would be the rich. Don't believe me?
2 yrs ago the richest 85 INDIVIDUAL people owned more than the poorest half of humanity combined. Last year it was the richest 70 individuals together owning more than the poorest half. You have NO CONCEPT of that statement and what it means. So look at it this way.
Take a US Football field - 5,000 sq yds, or 6, 480,000 square inches. The rich people would average owning more than 71 square yards - more than 92,500 square inches. That's about a modest, sixteen hundred square foot house in size. Picture that.
Now the average poor person - they would own slightly LESS than 0.0018 square inches. You again can't picture this - so grab a sheet of paper - say your 20# bond from your printer. That skinny edge - not the 8.5 inch, or the 11 inch, but that thickness dimension - that is FATTER than 0.0018 inches - so if you took that skinny dimension of that paper and squared it - that is significantly MORE than the average person from the poorest half of humanity would own.
Less than the squared edge of a sheet of paper. A 1600 square foot home footprint. Ironically, the rich person COULD NOT BE WEALTHY AT ALL if they did not have those poor workers. No billionaire makes their own product, makes their own sale. Delivers their product, etc. They are basically: functionally worthless.
Those 70 rich people (and the rest of the insanely wealthy) DIRECTLY CAUSE POVERTY, HUNGER AND STARVATION. MUCH DISEASE, MOST OF THE STRESS, VIOLENCE, AND DEATH.
In addition, the wealthy 5% owning all the corporate CONTROLLING SHARES and running the boardrooms, CEO positions, etc - make the decisions which cause ALL THE ECOLOGICAL PROBLEMS ON THIS PLANET which we can remediate.
The result of this farce of a "civilization" being run by rich people and their political whores is that EVERY system on this planet which keeps you alive at all - is DYING. At and accelerating rate. DIRECTLY because of conscious decisions, made by rich people, in corporations.
So don't give me this "parental blame" crap. You aren't smart enough to pull the wool over everyone's eyes Ms Washington Post.
ALL problems of significance are caused by rich people. There may be a few good rich people out there, but not enough to stop the destruction of your oxygen supply, is there? Your breath contains at best 65% of the oxygen it should contain. There aren't enough good rich people to straighten out the economy and bring hope to billions of people's lives, are they? The rich are wealthy enough that they could fix the entire PLANET'S economy in a few weeks if they chose to. They choose to continue the assault.
One could continue until they cried....
