    That's only the USA. Keeping this in mind, think about the rest of the world.

    Central banking is the problem. If our Government would print their own money instead of letting the privately owned Federal Reserve issue currency with interest to our government this would not be a problem. It would be a level playing field for all, but there would still be a huge curve because the FED could not print money with nothing to back it other than the taxes the government steals and exploits from us at incredible rates. I am currently paying between 40 and 50% of my income in taxes as many other middle income to upper income. It would stop the 1% from gaining too much power, which is derived from money.

    Meh. The country brought it on itself. They top 20% got some their money because the bottom 80% gave it to them. The 20% are also solidified because of the 80% voting for the people in office that are butt buddies with the 20% and then complaining they aren't fighting eachother.

    Wishing and hoping doesn't change jack. You have to do something to change it. You may despise or hate what you have to do, but unless you do it you're not going anywhere.

    This thread has little chance of surviving and not going political...
    Oh well my 2 cents are this..

    You think the USA has wealth equality?
    USA is a fair, tame and gentle Preacher compared to allot of countries. When you start poking around in other Countries is when
    your eyes open to wealth disparity. I live in a District that rivals some of the fanciest places in New York City but a bus hour away
    people live in wood shacks and sweep a dirt floor. City is crime free to for the most part. Not even a murder since I have lived here.

    Anyway just a comparison a plane ride can make a man have.

    Cheers,
    Unclemike

    Indeed. Only problem i see in this plan is that the only way is to kill shitloads of people.

    The wealth is distributed the way it should be distributed in a free society. These tearful documentaries make me sick.

    So people shouldn't be allowed to make smart money decisions anymore? And be forced to do things to spend more, as well as have to waste their time?

    Too bad it 's half the truth, eh?

    Here 's the response to that crappy propaganda, view it 10 times to absorb it if you don't see what 's going on:

    Yes and we all believe that this tax money goes back into the system to make our so called communities better to live in.

    Not really and not everywhere. There are people out there that do fuck all and make more money than those who work 24/7.

    In an ideal society everyone would get an equal share of wealth based on the work, time, and value they put back into it.

    "Equal share based on ..." ? It 's either equal (e.g. everyone gets a cow) or it isn't ShadeDream :)

    You mean analogous to the work and that is called the market. In the market you get the value of your production. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Three cowardly weaklings with a gun shoot you in the head and take your shizzle. Simple minded idealists will be the first people killed in any real contest. Laws protect the wealthy from the poor more than they protect the poor from the wealthy.

    How can anyone take a video seriously where the producer ends it with a "Get back to work you dirty communist"? Everyone that doesn't agree is by default a communist? And a dirty one at that. The producer actually really believes everyone that's out of work (the ones taking from the system as he so nicely points out in the video) are so by choice?

    I was talking about the second reply video. Sorry for not quoting correctly.

    Remember not to get political :)

    Its capitalism, people make money and some make a lot more than others. If you don't like where you're sitting go get a bigger piece of the pie.
