If 1/3 have twice the average they have 2/3 of the wealth among them. Two thirds must have on average ½ the average wealth.

If ten percent have on average 5 times the average, they have fifty percent of the wealth. Ninety percent have on average 5/9 of the average wealth.

In reality fewer have much more and most have, on average, much less than either of those mild cases of community destructive greed.

There's no point to arguing about why it is that way or ringing your hands and whining that you don't know what to do about it..

Eventually the ninety percent (or whatever the percentage of debt slaves happens to be) will get damned mad about it. The ill distribution of wealth has been getting worse for some time now (at least forty years) so the day of reckoning is coming faster all the time.

When it happens it will be bloody. It doesn't matter whether you like it or not. It doesn't matter whether you think it's right or wrong. It'll happen! Nothing anyone can do or say, except the rich surrendering their wealth, will stop it. I think it's going to be bad!

Debt slaves Unite

The world economy has essentially crushed many people.

Specifically, the gamblers and thiefs of wall street and government, purveyors of war and of spending the people's money without paying for the goods.

we should dump the national debt on the lap of whoever is responsible, of running up the federal debt, or being unethical with thebtreasury, by naming them and suing in court. (why should the people pay if we haven't been represented--we have been asking the debt not just continue to grow,for years)

That would be a start.

If they can't pay, bankruptcy like the rest of us face daily.

Then, a real living wage for every world citizen.

And gauruntees home can not be repossessed, in constitution.

You could, I suppose, impose estate taxes on those assets that pass from one generation to the next but other than that there's absolutely nothing that can be done. Nor do I see any reason to do anything.
