Post Re: The wealth gap
Quote:
Global wealth inequality widened last year as billionaires increased their fortunes by $2.5 billion per day, anti-poverty campaigner Oxfam said in a new report.

While the poorest half of humanity saw their wealth dwindle by 11%, billionaires’ riches increased by 12%. The mega-wealthy have also become a more concentrated bunch. Last year, the top 26 wealthiest people owned $1.4 trillion, or as much as the 3.8 billion poorest people. The year before, it was the top 43 people. -- source

Readers of this thread will know this is not unexpected. The wealth gap is engineered to widen until the two classes are masters and slaves. We are essentially at that point already, it's just that most of the slaves can't see it.

A system run by sociopaths will always maximize inequality. It is a given characteristic of their psychology. Lacking empathy, sociopaths see no logic in equality. They see themselves as God's Chosen People, far superior to the masses of useless eaters who are only good for beasts of burden carrying the baggage of the elite.

Yes, people who believe they are God's Chosen People are sociopaths. Think about that.

Money might then indeed become a servant of humanity, transformed from a tool of oppression into a means of securing common prosperity. But first the central bank needs to become a public servant. It needs to be made a public utility, responsive to the needs of the people and the economy. -- source

Not going to happen! Central banks are operated and controlled by sociopaths who will never release their grip on their powerful positions. Oh yes, central banks do need to become public utilities, if money is ever to become the servant of humanity. But money is currently the master of humanity, precisely because the ruling sociopaths benefit immensely from this arrangement. Do you believe they will give it up? They will not. That runs completely counter to their psychology. They will have to be forced to give it up, and the magnitude of that force will have to be greater than the magnitude of forces currently wielded by the ruling sociopaths, which is enormous. But it is only enormous because the ruling sociopaths control 90% of the human population with money.

It's a Catch-22.

Definition of Catch-22 by Merriam-Webster: a problematic situation for which the only solution is denied by a circumstance inherent in the problem.

By the way, it is the same Catch-22 that appears in my solution to the problem of ruling sociopaths, which is:

1. Identify all sociopaths using accurate, high-tech methods like fMRI.
2. Disqualify all identified sociopaths from positions of power and control.

Sociopaths, who run our world, will never allow this solution to become reality, precisely because they have the power and self-interest to sabotage it.

A review of the BLS Table R-1s for the last six years on record shows that in every one of those years, the average American consumer unit paid more in taxes than it paid for food, clothing and health care combined. -- source

This is what economic slavery looks like, when things get really bad. Things have been getting bad since the day I was born. That's a long time, as I'm over 60 now. Things have been getting bad since the day my father was born. He's dead now, but I heard enough stories from him to realize the same thing was happening with his generation. Things do nothing but get worse because sociopaths lead our nation. As long as they lead this nation, the trend will continue. There's no hope of a better life until we start managing the sociopaths, instead of letting them manage us.

The wealth gap exists and grows to ensure the economic slavery of the majority of humanity.

When we in the prosperous pockets of the world buy products, we are ignorant of the human exploitation that underlies our purchases. The ruling sociopaths want our ignorance to remain in place. Otherwise, our pesky feelings of empathy for the most exploited humans on the planet might cause them some problems.

Let us pray that they will.

Our mountain of debt has become so colossal that the only way to keep the game going is to borrow even more money, but by borrowing more money we make our enslavement even worse.

Meanwhile, those that are holding our debt just continue to live the high life as they laugh all the way to the bank. -- source

It's all about the economic enslavement of the public. It's all about the endless pursuit of power and control by the ruling sociopaths. It's all about psychology.

As long as sociopaths have free reign to deceive and manipulate the public, there will never be justice in this world.To solve all of our main problems, we have to identify sociopaths at a young age and manage them for the rest of their lives. Failure to do so ensures that they will manage the rest of us to their great benefit and at our great expense.

Maier Amschel became a clerk in a banking house and before his death this "obscure child of the Frankfurt ghetto" had founded the House of Rothschild, whose fortune today (1913) is estimated at $2,000,000,000. -- source

That's 100 million U.S. $20 gold pieces in 1913!

Or 3110 metric tonnes of gold. That made one Rothschild richer than any country in the world in 1913.

A typical worker's income in 1913 in New York City was $50 per month, or about 2.5 U.S. $20 gold pieces.

The median household income in 2020 in the U.S. was $67,521. Interestingly, that's about 2.9 U.S. $20 gold pieces per month, at current gold prices which are artificially low.

So a worker in 1913, if he could save half of what he earned, might be able to accumulate 17 gold pieces in a year. And if he could do that every year for 5.9 million years, he could be another very rich Rothschild! Now there's a wealth gap for you!

What I do know is that the ultra-wealthy and the banks have the most to gain from this (increasing inflation) and they are the ones who have most encouraged the policies that have brought us to this. It seems that they are well-positioned to buy up the remaining assets of middle and working class Americans at fire sale prices, after they have finished setting fire to the economy. But then again, it could just be incompetence. That is one commodity that there is no scarcity of among those who occupy the commanding heights of power in America. -- source

No, it could NOT just be incompetence. While it is true that "those who occupy the commanding heights of power in America" are certainly incompetent, at least as seen from the ordinary citizen's point of view, they are not the ones originating this deliberately destructive agenda. The ruling sociopaths are doing that, and they are not incompetent. They are morally insane, but none are more competent at behaving immorally and criminally than the ruling sociopaths. It is, after all, the bedrock of their psychology.

Over the last 30 years, CEO pay in the USA has grown by 725%, while worker pay has risen by just 5.7%. These CEOs now make an average of 244 times more than their employees. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. -- source

This article was written seven years ago, and the situation has only gotten worse with the COVID-19 psy-op disrupting the world in a deliberate attempt to bring about the tyranny of "The Great Reset" ("You will own nothing and be happy."). And, to make matters even worse, this coming tyranny is the deliberate end goal of the ruling sociopaths, who are the 1%. The 99% are to be enslaved. Sounds fair, doesn't it? It does when you have the mindset of a sociopath.
