Forum Post: I don't hate the rich, but....

I don't hate the rich and I'm sure most of the OccupyWallst supporters don't either. I just don't want the rich people to create artificial demand for commodities, land etc (with their excess money and speculation) to make more money. The supply of many of natural resources are limited and all 7 billion people share the same planet. All 7 billion don't have right to become rich, but each and every human (including animals) have god given equal rights to air, water and soil (or land). So we ask the rich to control their greed or we as a community would like to control their greed, if they don't do it voluntarily.

there is rich and then there is something far beyond that which is the category the banksters occupy. How many zeros do the need in their bank balances for Christ's sake and what is their ultimate motive ? This is about controlling the people. You can't possibly spend the kind of money that some of the banksters have accumulated

I'm not talking about people who use the money to enjoy themselves no matter how extravagantly. I'm talking about people who have evil intentions and have accumulated very vast financial resources for the sole purpose of exercising power over ordinary people and to keep them down trodden.

The top 1% should pay their fair share of taxes as well. If they want to get their tax cuts, they should be required to invest in NATIONAL infrastructure and industy/business. I don't consider buying a yacht worthy of a big tax cut.
