The top or capstone of the pyramid scheme is supported by all the blocks at the bottom.

It has to be that way.

The bottom sustains the top.

That is the way it works in the Universe.

The rich are supported by the poor.

It's John Perkins and the books are "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" and "The Secret History of the American Empire."

These books need to be read to understand the position of South America today.
 Quoting: calx

How is the situation in Columbia? North American newspapers are completely censored when it comes to South American news. I just read two books by a mercenary who claimed to be an "economic hitman" and described how our government and private corporations completely plundered your continent for natural resources. They've installed dictators in every country to suit their needs and profits.

Evo Morales comes up a lot. Every democratically elected president that was all about using natural resources to help the country's citizens was eliminated by the US government.

Sickening.

Yes, Chavez was highly demonized by the media.

Interesting fact: He accused USA government of using a high tech weapon (HAARP?) to cause an 'experimental earthquake' in Haiti...

I'm sorry, but the OP is just plain wrong. The situation is FAR worse than that. Fully half the planet, or the 3.5 billion people stated in the OP, live on less than $2 U.S. per day, AND HAVE NO SAVINGS OF ANY KIND. Saying they have a combined $2.2 trillion in net worth is totally ridiculous. They have NOTHING.

The financial and economic inequality on this planet is not just terrible, it's shocking, staggeringly, mind-bogglingly terrible. The situation will improve, but I sure as hell wish it would hurry up. The suffering on this planet is getting unbearable to witness.

I just watched a Documentary called Surviving Progress on Netflix and it was really good, it shows the real problems our world is facing now.

I found a youtube link


I really liked it and I totally agreed with it's theme of how the oligarch bankers and corporations and wall street have basically fallen into a progress trap where what seemed beneficial is actually dooming us all to an epic catastrophic extinction in the not too distant future. Big changes need to be made for sure. We need to make things to last forever, and make things locally and we need to become highly self sufficent and grow our own food and make our own tools with 3D printers. We can stop any need for most transportation except the transport of raw materials. Alternative energy technologies that have been suppressed for so long need to be released and developed. It was all to keep the profits of the oil industry high. Forcing people to work to earn money to live is making people demand the businesses that are clearing the rainforests and strip mining resource rich countries. The desire to industrialize and become wealthy is totally destructive to the earth. sorry about the wall of text. Watch the doc!
