The Man.

Who is The Man you ask? I'll tell you. The Man is a businessman who buys the rights to control a corporation with the sole purpose of making profit. The Man is the average everyday actions of that individual and his/her cohorts who justify all means for their prescribed ends - profitization. They will lie, deceive, extort, kill, bully, lay-off, neglect, ignore and cover-up all for the grand purpose: profit.

This has become a cultural phenomenon. Many humans have become controlled by these ideas and they garner an ever greater stake of control in our civilization. They lack morals. They lack accountability. They lack humanistic purpose. They hold only one thing in high regard: profit. To them, profit is synonymous with success and therefore happiness. Thus they are deluded, confused and distraught.

Who is the The Man you ask? I've told you, clear as day. They say the truth will set you free... I say take care to know what the man is, and take care to avoid him at all costs. Lest you become of him, whoring your life for an ideal which is hollow as a drum.

They infiltrate our communities and our science. Our art and our music. Our media and our laws. They hinder progress time and time again. All human endeavors are usurped by their greed and controlling interests - all for more more more ever more profit.

They sell out their soul, sense of dignity, of respect all for what? (they own the properties, the hills, valleys mountains, glades, and yes even some rivers and lakes)

Change, positive change cannot occur until we come to these terms of the new century. We must understand it and - as Jesus of the Nazareth did - convince them to join us. We can only do that by compelling them to act freely. We cannot force a hand, nor triumph through force of arms. It is a journey of free-peoples exercising their will-to-power.

So Let Freedom Reign. Not this kleptocracy. vickvega_21@hotmail.com

we don't want the top 1% to pay more taxes, we want them "poor" like the rest of us. =========== we are like robin hood, we rob from the rich and give their loot to the poor. training web page http://tinyurl.com/7rvpv43

Ya the only way is to go in and take that which is not rightfully our and take other people's rights away from them even thought we probably have never met these people and they have never done anything to intently harm us

everyone on the earth is born with equal rights.
which includes equal resources. if someone due to greed has acquired more then their fair share- i will take it from him and evenly distribute it to those that need it. where do you live-i come to collect, what you have horded. training web page http://tinyurl.com/7rvpv43

And who will determine what is equal? And how will you take it from them?

Elect politicians who will impose a minimum wage, and a maximum wage; and ensure their difference is neither negative nor positive.... j/k :)

Just throwing it out there, but how about a progressive sales tax on new items? Like 0% tax on essentials like food, but then 5% on non-essentials for the first $500 of individual product price, then 10% on the next $501-1000, 15% on $1001-$10000 etc. etc.

There could be exceptions for primary vehicles or primary residence, to make the system more fair.

That way most people would pay a reasonable tax, but those with $40,000 to waste on Ashley Olsen backpacks would have to shell out a bit more. Its not like anyone buying a $40,000 backpack would actually notice the 20% tax anyway.
