The billionaire class and the darwinistic ideology that drives corporation culture is actively seeking to feed on the weak citizens of our nation’s. This is the point of corporations, to redistribute the earnings of citizens so that the billionaire class can accumulate it as power.
Sorry, I believe this is tripe. Hence, I chortled at the OP instead of attempting to instruct him, which was the other option.
What you’re referring to by saying “darwinistic ideology” is capitalism. Capitalism is the worst economic system ever created, except for all the other ones that have been tried. The historical results are pretty clear on that one.
If you dislike rich billionaires, that’s fine, but they are the unavoidable result of achieving a (relatively) high standard of living for everyone else. If you find a way to successfully (!) redistribute their wealth so they are somewhat less wealthy (questionable if possible), the result will be a lower aggregate standard of living for all. Why? Because redistributionist economic philosophy ignores the psychology behind economic achievement. Every time you lower the amount of filthy lucre that these high-achievers are able to amass, you lower the motivation to become a high economic achiever.
I don’t understand how those people think, and neither do you, because it seems counterintuitive that just cutting what they could possibly earn by a small amount could have such a large effect on an entire economy. What I do know is that Europe, which has attempted what you seem to be supporting for half a century, has had a consistently lower average GDP and higher average employment along with those higher taxes, than the US has had over that period of time.
I don’t try to emulate losers; I try to emulate winners, as long as the principles of freedom are upheld.
As he said in his article, there has been long term Propaganda campaigns designed to keep the population blaming the poor and any ‘other’ group for society’s problems, so that people don’t look to closely at why the people with all the power are draining the blood of society rather than building society.
Sorry. It’s not propaganda to point out that low achievers in our society, almost without exception, have made some sort of CHOICE that has hampered them economically. It may have been a CHOICE to not take their education as far as they could; it may have been a CHOICE to have a child out of wedlock; it may have been a CHOICE to commit a felony. Those are all CHOICES, and to say they are propaganda is probably the biggest Get Our Of Jail Free card I have ever heard.
It is a war of Corporations vs humans, and the Corporations are winning. It’s only once we start to identify our true enemy that we can take action.
Let’s be clear; I am an enemy of Corporatism, which is a perversion of conservativism which tilts the playing field towards the corporation and away from the citizen. HOWEVER, at the end of the day, the objectives of the Corporation and the objectives of the citizen are not opposed, but aligned.
Pursuant to the principles of freedom, there is no scenario that anyone can dream up where the people prosper while the corporations do not.
