The Coming Fall Of The Super-Rich

Reblogged this on The Most Revolutionary Act and commented:
“Capitalism is now in a crisis that dwarfs all the past destabilizing events that have threatened to end it, including the Great Depression. One sign of this crisis is the fact that capitalism has become more destructive to the livelihoods of most people than it’s been in decades, and has in the process become very unstable. In America alone, half the people are either in or near poverty, 80% of workers live paycheck to paycheck, and 80% overall are in debt.”

This is what Dr. Bramhall wrote on her reblog. I said to reblog it, yes that is what I want to do!

Lies. Justice. Injustice. These concepts are beyond them. Whatever benefits or pleases them is good. What does not must be destroyed.”

    “It’s this rejection of reality among the super-rich that will ensure their downfall, which will either come in the form of a revolution against them or a collapse of the system they depend on. . . . .”

  2. The problem of the super rich dominating the world’s economies is easily solved by governments that will put into place hefty increases in taxation for the rich.
    That Dutch bloke pointed that out again last night when interviewed by ABC’s Leigh Sales. The elephant in the room is lack of sufficient payments of taxation by the super rich. Tax, tax and more tax is the answer.
    Between the fifties and seventies the wealthy were paying enough tax that gave Europe and the US its golden age, but look at it now!
