Wealth Gap Delirium: Now That Just 8 Men Have More Wealth than the Bottom 50% of All Humans, the Masses Are Waking up to Their Serfdom


(Melissa Dykes) In what Forbes is ingratiatingly referring to as “the most glorious economic event of our lifetimes,” we’re now to a point that just eight men own as much wealth as 3.6 billion other people on the planet do.

Just eight men.
The eight include Michael Bloomberg, Bill Gates, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, and Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg. (Of course, they never mention the Rothschilds in these surveys, or the Queen of England as the world’s largest land owner, now do they. That question was rhetorical.)
Executive director Winnie Byanyima of Oxfam International, the outlet that released the report, said,
“It is obscene for so much wealth to be held in the hands of so few when 1 in 10 people survive on less than $2 a day. Inequality is trapping hundreds of millions in poverty; it is fracturing our societies and undermining democracy.”
And with all that money, what are these super wealthy people doing with it?
Let’s look at Bill Gates for example, a man who has enough wealth aloneto end world hunger. Not fight it. End it.
It has been pointed out that, for the billions Gates has shelled out through his tax-exempt foundations creating “minority-specific” vaccines for the children of third world countries to supposedly eradicate diseases like meningitis and polio (which, instead, his organizations have been caught causing in countries like India where tens of thousands of cases of vaccine-induced non-polio paralysis have cropped up), Gates could’ve spent a fraction — just a fraction — and provided clean water wells for around $3,000 each to, well, basically the whole continent of Africa and not even really caused a dent in his piggy bank.
Warren Buffett, who made an astounding $12 billion just last year alone, owns Berkshire Hathaway and has been accused of buying up houses (especially foreclosures) all across the country and pushing up housing costs so less and less people can afford a roof over their heads. Meanwhile, America is now seeing the lowest homeownership rates in half a century.
You could probably make these points for everyone on the list. And, not that taxation isn’t bullshit altogether, but it’s truly insane that many of these insanely wealthy men are likely paying a lower tax rate than the person they’ve hired to clean their house or tend to their landscaping.
This wealth gap and all of the inequality it entails regarding who is in control and who is disenfranchised from having a say in how the world works is continuing to accelerate at a faster and faster rate to beyond obscene levels.
Eventually, as the economically disadvantaged masses get more and more pissed at their situation, this will reach a tipping point. Why?
Because once a person has that much money, so much the meaning of money is probably lost to them and they become disconnected from the usury-based reality the majority of everyone else must face on a daily basis, the rest of the world who are getting by on somewhere between paycheck-to-paycheck to $2 a day are going to start to wonder why we are all living like serfs under forced austerity and can never seem to get ahead no matter what we do… Which ultimately leads to people wondering  why the super wealthy elite with the gigantic obscene amounts of so much wealth they could never spend it all in ten lifetimes aren’t actually using any of it to make the world a better place.
If there’s one solid silver lining takeaway from all this, it’s that the masses are waking up to their serfdom.
Edelman, one of the world’s biggest marketing firms, came out with a survey that found trust in the global power structure including governments, major corporations and the mainstream media is at an all-time low across the board:
The firm’s 2017 Trust Barometer found that 53 percent of respondents believe the current system has failed them in that it is unfair and offers few hopes for the future, with only 15 percent believing it is working. That belief was evident for both the general population and those with college education.
So, pretty much everybody. Continuing —
“The implications of the global trust crisis are deep and wide-ranging,” said Richard Edelman, the firm’s president and CEO. “It began with the Great Recession of 2008, but like the second and third waves of a tsunami, globalization and technological change have further weakened people’s trust in global institutions. The consequence is virulent populism and nationalism as the mass population has taken control away from the elites.”
There may be an almost unfathomable wealth gap in this world, but there are still a whole lot more poor and working class people than there are super rich elite 0.00001%-ers.
So who really has the power?
The masses are waking up and starting to realize that means the world actually looks like this:
