I have been criticized for my relentless persecution of the rich and my particular brand of protest. I've been told that nothing 'positive' can come from it. Thats a load of albino lobster crap. The truth is just the opposite. Nothing positive can come from our toleration of the rich. That toleration got us in this mess to begin with. It prevents us from doing what must be done in order to reverse this obscene concentration of wealth, save the middle class, and prevent another Great Depression.
Let me put it this way. If everyone felt the way I do about greed, and made a statement to that effect with their wallets, the wealth of this country would be significantly less concentrated in one year. After 5 or 10, we would have the strongest middle class in American history.
Whats that you say? Massive job loss?
No. I'm not proposing that we stop spending our money all together. Just that we stop giving so much to the rich. Support small business more and big business less. The little guy more and the big guy less. Poor and middle class communities more and rich communities less.
I don't believe that one single person out there will take that seriously until they understand the severity of concentration and the horrible downside.
They are even less likely to make that statement with their wallets if they make or accept any excuses for the rich. Like:
"The rich create jobs." "The rich pay more taxes." "The rich 'give back'."
BULLSHIT! THE RICH CONCENTRATE WAY TOO MUCH GOD DAMN WEALTH! THE RICHEST ONE PERCENT ALREADY HOLD MORE PERSONAL WEALTH THAN THE BOTTOM NINETY PERCENT COMBINED. THIS IS TRUE EVEN AFTER THE JOBS, THE TAXES, AND THE FAKE HUMANITARIAN CRAP. ITS GETTING WORSE. AMERICA'S WEALTH IS BECOMING MORE CONCENTRATED AS WE SPEAK. THIS WILL CAUSE ANOTHER GREAT DEPRESSION. I WANT AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE TO UNDERSTAND THIS AND TAKE IT AS SERIOUSLY AS A FUCKING HEART ATTACK! UNTIL THEY DO, WE ARE FUCKED! THERE IS NO CHANCE IN HELL FOR A TRUE RECOVERY WITHOUT A PARTIAL REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH! THE GOVERNMENT WILL NEVER MAKE IT HAPPEN! ITS UP TO US! PERIOD!
