The Global Elite 1% is actually more like .01 of the world's population,and they hate us-they all hate us & they hate all of us.They think we are Maggots and they don't differentiate-not by race,not by nationality,not even by how much money an individual Maggot has.Nobody can buy their way in-IF you have over 100 million dollars,and IF you can marry someone who is related to them,they will accept the children from that marriage.If you are not related to them through at least one of your parents or grandparents,they will NEVER accept you as one of The Masters of the Universe.They hate us-and they know us.They know what we never do,what we rarely do,what we sometimes do,and what we always do.They worship wealth,and consider themselves to be Gods.They are stateless superwealthy nomads,drifting from one luxurious Camp to another.They are loyal only to themselves,and the Transnational Corporations are Creatures they have created in their own image-"Corporations are People,my friend."
I have a friend and he told me his general manager said in a meeting that "people who have been here for over 10 years are costing us money."
Same manager went up to a girl and said "you get paid too much money for what you do."
A 6 figure salary GM telling that to a worker who made 12 dollars an hour.
Then within a year they fired 8 full time employees and hired a bunch of 20 year olds for half the pay and part time hours only. They don't want to pay benefits so the replacements aren't allowed to work over 28 hours a week.
Welcome to the employers market.
These places forget that the middle class drives the economy through consumption. The 1% will lose profit with a less employed market. Which is why the Federal Reserve target level for unemployment is between 6 and 7%. Keeps it desperate enough for workers to take the punishment and just at the right level the 1% will still see huge profits.
This is why we need a reform in monetary policy. If we can't depend on the private sector to fulfill it's duty of a full employment economy then we need to reform monetary policy and base it around job creation and building our cities. This boost would force competition in the private sector and help bring back an employees market.
We need to break free from the rule of the banks. They have way too much power in determining our economic future.
"stateless, superwealthy nomads" and that makes us patriotic farmers?
It's my view, Harry, that we don't know your 'superwealthy', not personally. We see them in their superboxes with their supertrophy superwives, but our knowledge of them is comparable to the Greeks' knowledge of Poseidon and Aphrodite. Their influence is felt, and we feel free to attribute extreme characteristics to them ('they hate us'). Instead, we should examine the emerging ruling class that we do know, the professionals. After all, the bourgeoisie in their revolutionary phase, pretended that their interests were everybody's interests. The 99% is a slogan of the professionals pretending the same thing.
They are stateless,superwealthy nomads who are amoral,hedonistic,and mostly irreligious.You are correct that hate may not be an accurate word for how they actually feel-their emotions are probably similar to our emotions when we confront the more repugnant pests that inhabit the fringes of our lives-vermin like rats,roaches,mice-and maggots.These people do have a history that can be studied.Such studies are a rich source of information about them.
They can be studied, like microbes or leptons or pre-Cambrian stromatolites. Why bother? When Engels was ein Jugend (wie sagt man das?), he went to Manchester to see the new emerging universe of capitalism. Let's be like him and study the emerging ruling class of professionals.
The reason to study them is to figure out how dangerous they are.Agreed;we can stipulate that they are dangerous and that their existance has been,is and will always be dangerous.Also agreed:the ruling class of professionals should be closely studied-but I believe at this time that they are Tools.The question then becomes-Tools to do what with?
But Harry, in 19th century Europe the capitalists looked like tools, tax paying lackeys who bought an estate as soon as possible, married the impoverished aristocracy, and badly aped the manners of their betters.
Our professionals started as lackeys, petit bourgeoisie, foremen of sorts, but now they think they're entitled to the world by virtue of their superior brains. Arrogance, ideology, they're taking over. They're already responsible for the most productive features of our system. They even do the work of the capitalists, making and evaluating the investments.
One might be able to glean some useful insight by comparing these groups.I know that the servant group has become nearly as rich-or as rich as the Super Nomads by carrying out the harvest of trillions of dollars which has taken place since 01-or starting somewhat sooner.It seems unlikely that they would develop identical characteristics in all behaviors.It seems they might consider turning on the Super Nomads if they could be convinced that those who are encouraging them to turn will refrain from stripping them of their wealth.All of these priviledged people are deeply afflicted with solipsism;they have difficulty understanding that what they themselves would do is not what other people would do.Personally,I feel that harshly stripping rich and well heeled people of their money and possessions is cruel and counter-productive.Some people are talking about an international individual wealth ceiling of 1 billion dollars.That certainly is great wealth by any standard,and the Wealthy Servant Class might be able to support something like that.
It doesn't matter how they feel or what they think. The poor living in various small towns around the world have similar feeling and thoughts about outsiders or anyone new or different. What you're describing is, unfortunately, human nature.
Thank you for responding on this thread.It is very interesting to me that you took the time to do so.Have an excellent day-LOL.
