So....Truth be told, God HAS blessed America with "enough
and to spare", The sinister evil problem is the wealth is NOT
being reditributed by some of his children.The opposite of redistribution
is -- GREED.BTW -- We've been warned about this
happening in America -- this is the 0.01%, and they are the Gadianton
Robbers, this is Master Mahon economics 101.
This illustrates what I try to tell people about the FANTASTICALLY top heavy
distribution of wealth in the United States, which defies all common
understanding. Marx predicted this and it heralds the end of capitalism. Bet
Look, if you all don't care about social justice, whatever. But at least
look at the economic harm of increasing income inequality. The worst years for
income inequality in this nation the past century the past century were 1928 and
2007. What happened immediately after those years? Great Depression. Great
Recession. Coincidence? Consider that when wealth is increasingly concentrated
at the top that means there's less for the poor and middle class to spend
and well... businesses thrive much better when they have customers able to buy
their goods and services and that the poor and middle class turn their money
around to put back into the economy much faster than the wealthy do.
Some of the commentators here, in their attempt to justify the obscene and
immoral distribution of nearly all wealth to the top 0.01%, illustrate well the
following quote:“The modern conservative is engaged in one of
man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a
superior moral justification for selfishness.” - John Kenneth Galbraith
As noted by Winston Churchill, capitalism is the worst possible economic system,
except for all others. Marx predicted the collapse of capitalism which is
unlikely unless people are beaten into submission and give up their ambition
which has happened to many in Russia. However, Marx was not smart enough to
predict the collapse of Marxism, which has happened many times, i.e. USSR,
China, Venezuela, Eastern Europe. Marxism only survives in North Korea and Cuba,
which is not a great endorsement.
This coveting accusations is ridiculous. If I'm out of town and
I order my kids a pizza does the one that answers the door own the pizza?
They're fighting and taped off the house into sections and the strongest
most forceful one claims to own the door. Are the hungry other children coveting
when they expect some of the pizza?Read the Bible, the .01% or the
1% don't own nor deserve 50% of God's Earthly creation. The only valid
Biblical or doctrinal reason to gather more wealth than you need, is so you can
give it away to others that can't gather for themselves. That is why
it's hard for a rich man to get into heaven.
"From each according to his ability, to each according to his
need."========== We should all have, sufficent for
I'm glad that some are doing well. I am hoping that most of us can do
better. I know this, that the harder we work, the more lucky we will be.
Government remains our biggest problem.
