Dynasties would be a problem. The ones who are millionaires as children due to inheritance did not earn what they have. They had wealth given to them, and all they have known is wealth and the hoarding of such material things.

How can a man sleep at night on a thousand dollar pillow when there are homeless people in need of help? Starving children going hungry.

It takes a village to raise a chief.

The only ones I have a problem with are military industrial complex war profiteers, mega monopolies that should be broken up according to laws- who have too much power, buy off politicians, etc., world bankers and others who make money off cheating the world's people, bringing down nations and causing misery. People like that.

Why are those poor people making so many babies, babies they can't feed... why is no one talking about issues like that, like these poor people are always so innocent when many of them are not.

"Oh I'm going to have all these babies, I live in this mudhut and can't even feed myself but damned if I'm not going to have a baby"

Then these shits come to my country and mess it up.
"But you can't hate on them, they're like poor and shit, so what if they come rape, steal and murder, they're poor people you're supposed to give them apartments and free living because f*** you!"

Maybe they should stop doing that and wait until they can afford having children?
Why are they not accountable for their own actions?

Why do I have to pay for these people, I don't even like them. Go away, don't come here, you're not welcome.
Get out!

That's because poor people are stupid and won't learn from the rich people.
 Quoting: BRIEF


Why is it that as a society we allow CEO's to earn millions while their workers make $10 an hour.

I remember in the eighties the japanese tried to switch to our economic distribution, and the society was scandalized and did not allow this sort of disparity in income. (not sure if that's the case now, probably not, we all devolve)

While I am by no means a socialist, it is not right that the wealth is in so few hands, but we allowed it, and now it is likely to late to change it as everything is going to robotics and most of us will truly be useless eaters in the eyes of the rich.

Did not think that THIS would be the fulfilling of revelation where you work only for a day's food, but so it is, and becoming increasingly so. Rather thought there would be a cataclysm to accomplish it.

Beware all you who currently make a good wage. Right now they are programming lawyers, teachers, accountants, and any number of professional occupations into robots and AI. You will also become obsolete in time. Robots are now doing surgery.

CNN Business) The world's billionaires are growing $2.5 billion richer every day, while the poorest half of the global population is seeing its net worth dwindle.

Billionaires, who now number a record 2,208, have more wealth than ever before, according to an Oxfam International report published Monday. Since the global financial crisis a decade ago, the number of billionaires has nearly doubled.

The annual study was released ahead of the yearly World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, which brings together some of the wealthiest and most influential people on Earth. The 106-page report is meant to call attention to the growing gap between rich and poor.

Those billions given to those poor countrys hardly ever went to what they where ment for big business / corrupt leaders pocketed that shit.

Did you ever stop to think why those countrys still don't have decent infrastructure.

Lots of keyboard warriors that "know" all poor people are lazy.
Self made billionaires you say right like those banker bonuses people that take 100-1000 million from companys in bonuses and then get a blank check from the goverment to cover their losses.
Amazon .. needed to be subsidized ? now the richest man in the world thats clearly all due to hard work ..

My guess would be that 99% if not 99.9999% of the people posting on topic's like this are not millionaires so appreantly you are all lazy 2.

Millionaires dont waste their time on forums.

What do you suggest? They give their money away to make things more "even?". That sounds like a liberal/socialist type of deal. We should all make our own ways in the world....free handouts shouldn't be a thing.
 Quoting: The F Shack


No how about some community projects? Community gardens , or maybe set up an ecovillage outside of every major city so all the homeless can grow their own foods build their own homes n have a chance to be independent n self sufficient along with anyone else not fit for society. This would solve a ton of issues. But it would bring Real change to society and we all know the Zionists won't allow any REAL positive changes to society......

You can give everyone 1 million dollars and the same people will be broke in less than a year, and the same people that were wealthy will be wealthy again. It's because some people just aren't fit to have money.

It's just simply not logical for someone to have that much when the world has so many problems around them. Ppl gota realize we are all one all part of one system and it's being destroyed. The globalists don't allow billionaires to do anything real with their money tho it's forbidden, in shocked Akon didn't get killed for setting up so much solar power in Africa. If he made solar communities in the USA he would be gone I bet

So if we do the math
(i think I'm doing this right)

3,800,000,000,000 (3.8 billion "poverty level" persons)
/divided by/
26 individual "billionaires"

gives us:

1,461,538,461.538462 (roughly 1.46 billion "poverty-level" persons /per "billionaire"

multiply that by roughly $12,000 annual income, per "Single-family household.

(according to 2017 FPL Guidelines, all 50-states)

EACH SAID BILLIONAIRE WOULD AVERAGE

$17,538,461,532,000 $$ Trillion $$

$17.54 (trillion) a year/per billionaire (average)

That's one way to look at it, just for some perspective, i suppose.

I'm guessing most of those 26 ARE like that- but have not researched them/who they all are. I have a problem with putting ALL well off people in a bad category- it becomes an excuse to take all property/bring in communism, etc. I do understand the dangers of people like Soros and his use of money though. He earned much by destroying nations and people's lives- and continues. Many of his actions have to be illegal though, so the illegal part needs to be addressed. These people are above the law though- also because of their money.

Every dime could be taken from these billionaire$, given to the 3.8 billion poorest. Fast forward 6 months -- the 3.8 billion poorest are back to being the 3.8 billion poorest, and the only consequence, is that the billionaires (many who were self made) now have little to nothing.
 Quoting: Lady Jane Smith


I disagree with your last part - those billionaires will still have the brains that got them success thr first time and eventually they'll succeed again.
 Quoting: Bright Side


I agree they will succeed again, but it will take more than 6 months; however, the "poor" who received the billion$ will only need 6 months before finding themselves poor again.
 Quoting: Lady Jane Smith


Define "the poor."
 Quoting: PharmaceuticalsShrinkCocks


You are correct -- "poor" -- is relative.

By global standards, there are no poor in the US.

What do I mean by "poor"? I am referring to the turd worlders with sub 90 IQs who do nothing but reproduce like vermin. People who have zero desire to do anything to improve their situation, but think they are owed something.

I applaud each and every one of these billionaires for their savvy, prowess
and overall ability in wealth creation.

Each of them serves as a motivating factor for me.

While I know nothing about the charitable side of these individuals, I gotta
believe that a big portion of that accumulated wealth is already set aside
for such purposes (probably just not at the speed most jealous, libTARD

Let's face it, there are a lot of lazy, useless eaters out there who couldn't be bothered to contribute anything.

On the same token, most wealth is passed down generationally to children who would have been equally lazy, useless-eaters but they've had their wealth to buffer them from persecution.

I think the goal should be that anyone who is able and willing to work full-time shouldn't be living in poverty.

I don’t understand the current obsession with Robots in the workplace.Don’t get me wrong there are good uses for Robots in Car/Airplane/Agricultural/ industry, medicine, tricky operations.

We now have situation though, where Big Business are using Robots only for maximizing profits. Especially in the unskilled labor sector. They are literally forcing unskilled workers, for example a hypothetical Burger flipper in to a long-term unemployment useless eater, State dependent situation.Big Business might save say £4 an hour in overhead costs using a Robot to flip burgers.
However, the government picks up the long cost of having to provide unemployment benefits, housing benefit etc. Likely running in to tens of thousands of pounds for an unskilled worker.

There are millions of people here in the UK that fall in to the unskilled labour category. Mostly In the retail industry, losing their Jobs to self-serving Tills, Robots etc.

Over the next few years Robots are ear marked to be taking millions of Jobs from the unskilled worker sector. Many of these people will be poorly educated, and have no chance of getting a Job in the skilled sector.

Big business will see negligible rise in profits from each one of these people forced in to unemployment. However, the government will pick up a bill that could run in to billions as more, and more, are forced in to long term unemployment. Big business does not give a shit about the socio-economic impact of their actions. In my opinion this is a financial ticking time bomb.

Follow. But! Follow only if ye be men of valor! For the entrance to this cave is guarded by a creature so foul, so cruel, that no man yet has fought with it... and lived! BONES of full fifty men lie *strewn* about its lair! So! Brave knights! If you do doubt your courage or your strength, come no further, for death awaits you all with nasty, big, pointy teeth...

Re: 26 Billionaires Own The Same Wealth As The Poorest 3.8 Billion People
ALL HUMAN BEINGS HAVE ENORMOUS POTENTIAL.

But nothing is guaranteed.

Poor life and professional choices, mistakes, screwups, being out-negotiated,
too many bong hits, general laziness or simple bad luck.... there are many
ways to fail.

Thankfully, the world also needs ditch diggers.

The simple life directive is to maximize your own personal potential.

If that results in a poor showing, try again. And again. And again.

But don't think for a second that you will find much sympathy if your
chosen pathway to a lifestyle of ease and folded hands is to try and
take it from others.

You will lose.

Those billions given to those poor countrys hardly ever went to what they where ment for big business / corrupt leaders pocketed that shit.

Did you ever stop to think why those countrys still don't have decent infrastructure.

Lots of keyboard warriors that "know" all poor people are lazy.
Self made billionaires you say right like those banker bonuses people that take 100-1000 million from companys in bonuses and then get a blank check from the goverment to cover their losses.
Amazon .. needed to be subsidized ? now the richest man in the world thats clearly all due to hard work ..

My guess would be that 99% if not 99.9999% of the people posting on topic's like this are not millionaires so appreantly you are all lazy 2.

Millionaires dont waste their time on forums.
 Quoting: Violetag


Wrong. You would be surprised the number of millionaires on GLP.

Realize, the net worth of a small business owner is easily $1M now. A million dollars is not at all what it used to be, even in the late 20th century.

Re: 26 Billionaires Own The Same Wealth As The Poorest 3.8 Billion People
Let's face it, there are a lot of lazy, useless eaters out there who couldn't be bothered to contribute anything.

On the same token, most wealth is passed down generationally to children who would have been equally lazy, useless-eaters but they've had their wealth to buffer them from persecution.

I think the goal should be that anyone who is able and willing to work full-time shouldn't be living in poverty.

I agree .... BUT .... willing is the operable word.


... and if they are unwilling to learn to do anything more than flip a burger, they should not expect to be compensated equal to a surgeon. Also, we must distinguish between needs and wants.
 Quoting: Lady Jane Smith


but its ok to pay an actor who reads lines millions while a construction worker who actually contributes by building a product like a house that people need only makes a modest wage, yeah thats fair
 Quoting: crestedone


Screw actors and Hollyweirdos.

There is a reason "entertainers" were only regarded as a slight cut above prostitutes throughout most of history. This celebrity thing is a very recent creation, and I find most of them worthless. Oh, and CGI will be replacing most of their entitled asses in short order.

How do I tell which group I belong to?

That's because poor people are stupid and won't learn from the rich people.
 Quoting: BRIEF

'Lower themselves to the same level' seems to be the large group knows better rather than they can't figure out how to storm a Castle or 50.
 Quoting: Wayfaring Stranger


This is where you sabotage yourself. Rich people are people too, not evil monsters...we give more to charity, on average, than you make in a year...yes it's tax deductible lol
 Quoting: BRIEF


Rich does not equal evil monsters. However the gap between rich and poor is getting too crazy. Needs to be more reasonable
