Consumable wealth for living expenditures must be limited. The richest person can consume only 20 times the poorest. Wealth which is spend for consumption should be redistributed. Bill Gates, Obama can only consume 20X when a janitor consumes 2X, safety net is 1X which is enough for shelter, food, health, education. If you want more than that, want a car, and travelling, you should be working to earn more than 1X, anybody who can work should get at least 2X which can lead to home ownership if spend wisely. Safety net, 1X, should allow people to grow intellectually so they can still give back to society however they like. Everybody owes to society all the time. Personal consumption can not go over 20X, because if you build a mansion, you rule, and we are no longer equal politically. Your wealth and economic power will give you connections and political power. Society invests in social, economic, politic infrastructure, create more social and humane contract for society. Bill Gates can spend 20X a year, and can have as much investment money as possible. Nobody can have a chunk of this world, the world is holly and precious. The most productive, talented and hard worker can earn 20X max, when a burger guy earns 2X, and unfortunate can have safety net of X. People do science and contribute to society based on love for humanity, justice, truth, knowledge. The system is same because Bill Gates can have unlimited resources but can only consume 20X, so his home is maximum 20 times larger than a burger guy's home. We owe our lives to every living creature who existed, suffered through time through existence, we owe ourselves to other human being who creates the gene pool, the society and the possibility of existence of us. We owe our lives to all other people around the world. We can not become kings and queens through corrupt organizations such as states. States are for to level the field, to bring justice and equality. State can not become center of power. It will be corrupted. One simple legislation can bring you this new world which will transform your lives and the world. Economic system will be more productive. What do you say?

Throwing your vote away -- http://overthecoals.blogspot.com/

In the privacy of your own mind without anybody else knowing your thoughts, please try examining the subject that will be mentioned many times every day and night. Did you guess? Could it be the media favorite? Did you guess, its -- THROWING YOUR VOTE AWAY.

The other side of that coin is to vote against yourself. That the purpose for the media (the government propaganda arm) to force 98% of American voters to vote against themselves instead of voting for the Green Party. I intend to explain why I'm choosing the Green Party instead of the Libertarian Party. They are the only 2 national parties.

I'm going to make a youtube to explain this subject that will be easy and entertaining to understand. It should be available Monday because today is for watching the second most favorite American entertainment, NFL football.

Remember the peace dividend? The dividend was for -- who do you think? That dividend was more than $5 trillion and you never heard of it, is that what you're thinking?

Message to all O.W.S.'ers.

You are NOT entitled. You want it, you work, save and patiently struggle like everyone else.

That is all.
