No group has a monopoly on good or evil. But right and wrong don't interest me. An economy that works well only for the ten percent with whom the wealth is concentrated,(1) is not merely broken. It's dysfunctional and unsustainable. And when I'm told they worked to create the wealth that it took a community to produce, I know they are either liars or fools.
Eventually the fools, especially the one's who don't really have theirs, will wake up. When that happens we'll really be beyond argument. Survival will depend on whose side your on. Will you choose to stand with the 1% and their ministers [principal slaves], the 9% who are what's left of the middle class?
The class war was fought and won by the rich in the past forty years of conservative domination. Violence can still be averted if the fools of the ruling class give back much what they've hoarded and what we the 90% need to live. I don't care whether we tax them or just confiscate their ill gotten gains and throw them in prison. Politics and religion are irrelevant. It's not about right and wrong. It's truly “beyond good and evil.”
The repus are fond of saying, “You can have your own opinion but you can't have your own facts.” When one of the 'individuals' stumbles on something clever to say or gets it from a cynical mentor, they're all saying it the next day. Of course, the truth is immutable. But, being enamored of their voices, few will allow themselves to see the true facts. As to opinion, the truth is not open to discussion. Thousands of years ago it was written in the I-Ching that the truth doesn't change. Ironically, or paradoxically, reality can change. The truth is reality now . . . but perhaps not later.
The truth is: too few people own or control too much wealth. More of us each day are moving closer to or deeper in poverty. That truth must change! (1) The top 1% of households in America possess $16.555 trillion of the nations $48.8262 trillion of wealth. The next 9% own 36.9% that amounts to $17.809T [www.levyinstitute.org/pubs/wp_502.pdf Wolff, 2004; it's worse today]
The truth is: Hard work might individually produce 2 or 3 times the average wealth. Beyond that, others must work for you to produce your much more than average wealth. A billionaire is abomination of human nature/social instinct: a parasite on our community. And that's the truth now and forever!
