Money - Power - Politics


Money, Power and Politics are the three things that rule almost every aspect of society, yet 99% of people have very little knowledge and information in order to accurately understand how these three things effect our lives everyday in almost everyway. We can control our own destinies, but we have to fully understand our responsibilities so that everyone has the ability to take part, whether directly or indirectly, which would depend on a persons location and the resources that they have available.

Nothing wrong with self preservation, but why do you need to take more than you need, especially if its wasted? When you take more money than you need, this could cause you to use more resources than you need, which means that you wasted resources that others need and that others can use.

Wisdom before Wealth. It's better to be wealthy with knowledge first before you become wealthy with money. This is because money can do more harm than good if your money is not used wisely or effectively. And money will control you and have power over you if you don't have the knowledge to control money or have the knowledge to control all the influences of money. Wealthy in dollars, but poor emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. Money can only take you so far, but knowledge can take you farther than you could ever imagine. And if you happen to lose all your money, at least you'll still have your knowledge, and knowledge will always have value, especially knowing that you will still have the ability to learn more knowledge. So remember, when the money runs out, its a good idea to have something to fall back onto, and knowledge is your greatest strength. Morals before Manhood.

Stealing the labor value of millions of workers is unjust and illogical, especially when people barely make a living wage, people who live paycheck to paycheck and who lack food security and lack affordable housing and healthcare.

In order to equalize the powers of influence, people need to be informed about the powers they possess themselves, and the responsibilities that go along with having these powers. Education needs to be improved, so does the way we inform the public. People are victims of ignorance, and it's time to stop being victims. We have to learn our way out of this mess. Luckily everyone has the same brain that can store enormous amounts of knowledge and information, which would give all us equal abilities to solve every problem on this planet.

Who Rules the World? (American Empire Project) Paperback – May 2, 2017 - In an incisive, thorough analysis of the current international situation, Noam Chomsky examines the way that the United States, despite the rise of Europe and Asia, still largely sets the terms of global discourse. Drawing on a wide range of examples, from the sordid history of U.S. involvement with Cuba to the sanctions on Iran, he details how America’s rhetoric of freedom and human rights so often diverges from its actions. He delves deep into the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Israel-Palestine, providing unexpected and nuanced insights into the workings of imperial power on our increasingly chaotic planet. And, in a new afterword, he addresses the election of Donald Trump and what it shows about American society. Fierce, unsparing, and meticulously documented, Who Rules the World? delivers the indispensable understanding of the central issues of our time that we have come to expect from Chomsky.

Giants: The Global Power Elite Paperback – August 8, 2018. Who holds the purse strings to the majority of the world's wealth? There is a new global elite at the controls of our economic future, and here former Project Censored director and media monitoring sociologist Peter Phillips unveils for the general reader just who these players are. The book includes such power players as Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Jamie Dimon, and Warren Buffett. As the number of men with as much wealth as half the world fell from sixty-two to just eight between January 2016 and January 2017, according to Oxfam International, fewer than 200 super-connected.

Eight Richest Men in the World The 8 Richest Men in the World hold the same amount of wealth as the bottom half of the world’s population — 3.5 billion people. Billionaire Hoarders of 2017. Profit? Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg, the problem is much bigger and a lot more damaging then you can ever imagine. This does not say that these men are bad, they're just victims of a distorted reality like most people. The Vile Maxim 2.0? But this is not all bad. The world has a total of around 1,810 billionaires, down from a record 1,826 a year ago. And there are almost 15 million millionaires in the world, and the U.S. and Canada has more than 5 million millionaires. And there are 50 companies with annual revenues exceeding $100 billion US. So yes, the wealth is concentrated. But having 100's of billions of dollars spread out amongst a few million people is a lot better then having all the wealth concentrated into one Government. Having a few million people who have enormous wealth is better then having only a handful of people with enormous wealth. So that means power is not as concentrated as we think. Which means there is still a chance that people will eventually come together and start communicating in a more realistic manner, and thus find ways to create a better world. This will happen, mostly because this is our only option. It's like finally realizing the truth about something. You make the change, just like our ancestors did.

The world’s 26 Richest People own the same wealth as the Poorest half of Humanity. The problem is not capitalism, the problem is ignorance and the corruption that follows. No one would really care that a small number of people would hoard all the wealth of all the humans on the planet, if only they would spend the money wisely and use the money intelligently so that the wealth of all humans would benefit all people and protect the environment from more destruction, as well as make improvements that would guarantee a return on our investments and sustain life for years to come. What if a Government collected taxes and then spent the money on themselves or quit the government and took all the tax money with them, they would be scumbag criminals, and people would be furious and want justice. Yet we allow this type of criminal activity to happen all the time under the guise of capitalism that is nothing more than just outright corruption. But the responsibility of spending money wisely is not just for the wealthy, but for anyone who has enough money to share, after all, it is the poorest of people who are the ones who give the most money, not the wealthy.

Oxfam Says the world's 85 Richest have same wealth as 3.5 Billion of the poorest people. The wealth of the richest one percent of people in the world now amounts to $110 trillion, or 65 times the total wealth of the bottom half of the world's population. Half the worlds wealth is controlled by only 2% of the worlds population. That's leaving over 6 billion people having to share only half of the worlds wealth, with over a billion of those 6 billion people having no share at all and living in total poverty. The love of Money is a disease that is responsible for the deaths of thousands of people everyday, and it's the cause of suffering for 100's of millions people. Money is also the main cause for the degradation and the poisoning of our planet. Money was only supposed to be a tool to make Trading easier. So what happened? When did it all go wrong?

When a wealthy person says that they work hard and deserve more money than other people who also work hard like they do, like military personnel, doctors and nurses, police, firefighters, farmers, food industry workers, slaughter house workers, social workers, waste management workers and cleaners, just to name a few, what these wealthy privileged morons are really saying is f*ck everyone else who makes their life possible, they deserve to have more wealth than everyone else, even when they know that they are not doing more work than everyone else, and the value of their work has never been measured against what the true cost was to society. If you believe that you're successful, why can't you do simple math and prove it? And don't count dollars moron, count the inputs and outputs and the cost of these actions that everyone else is paying for. But even poor people who become wealthy sometimes forget where they came from. So this is not just about forgetting, this is about never learning what true value is or learning that other people made your life possible, and that other people make sacrifices much greater than you.

People who steal money go to jail. But Corporations, Banks and Politicians also steal money but don't go to jail, why? People who commit murder go to jail, but Corporations, Banks, Police officers and Politicians who commit murder don't go to jail, why? If you murder on your own you go to jail. But if you do murder and steal under the guise of some crazy manipulation of the law, you can get away with murder and theft, why? Seems like pretty f*cked up rules. And you wonder why people protest. WTF!

Wealthy and powerful have a responsibility to life and the people who they have gained wealth and power from. Wealth needs to be managed, because you don't want to waste that potential that the wealth has given you, especially when the wealth was generated by the hard work of millions of other people, people who are counting on you to make good with that wealth. Wealthy people inherit leadership by default. As soon as a person accumulates wealth, the responsibility of that wealth relies on them. Some wealthy people who can't handle the wealth that they have received, end up giving the wealth away. But if the wealth is transferred to others who also can't handle the responsibility of wealth, then nothing has happened, and the potential of wealth is still underutilized, and may end up doing more damage than good. It's only when wealth is used effectively and efficiently does wealth serve it's purpose and achieve its full potential, which is to assure progress and minimize decay. We need a system that utilizes our wealth effectively and efficiently, so that people who control the wealth, know their options and fully understand their responsibilities of having wealth. This is something we can easily learn and accomplish.

Politicians Corrupted by Corporations The problem is not money or people, the problem is ignorance, and we can cure ignorance. If we can create people who are ignorant, then we can create people who are intelligent. Ignorance is like a cancer, everyone has it. But as long as you don't do things that make the cancer grow, then you will be good and safe. Humans live in harmony with millions of different organisms in a symbiotic relationship that is essential for life. Everyone needs something. It's only when people take more than they need and become imbalanced, that is when cancer grows. Knowledge has always been the real wealth of a nation and it's people. But that wealth of knowledge is almost non-existent today because societies have diminished knowledge and also restricted and censored knowledge. That is why there are millions of people who have cancer or had cancers and died. And the cancers from ignorance are the worst kind, they kill the most people and do the most destruction. The strong survive and the weak will die. And the rich and powerful who think that they are in control, are really just the cancer in society. And we know how to kill cancer now. So even the tricks that cancer has that fools our immune system is no longer secret. The gig is up. Cancers are dying, and everything bad will die with it, forever. The DNA will be updated soon.

Opportunities to Pillage and Steal

The Wealthiest Companies in the World Ignorant people who have wealth and power are causing death and destruction every single day, just like they have in the past and throughout human history. And they will continue to cause wars, now and in the future, especially when desperate people can be easily influenced by wealth and power, just like they have throughout human history. So this is not new, but it is new to millions of undereducated people who can be easily manipulated by money and power. This is why education is the greatest defense that people have over criminals with wealth and power, but criminals in power know this. This is why criminals influence schools and universities, as well as influence the media. People will never know how much power they have if they are never taught and educated about the power they have. And criminals know this. Even though criminals are stupid, they're happy just as long as they are not as stupid as most citizens. Criminals have the upper hand, but they don't have the best hand. People have the best hand, so it's time to lay down our cards. But people must be prepared, because criminals do not like loosing. We can take all their money at the table, but we will have to follow them home, because that's where most of their wealth is. Criminals can not be trusted. Just because you won one battle, this does not mean the war is over. And this is not to say that all people with wealth and power are doing destructive things, because there are good people with wealth and power who are doing productive things. But they're just a few, and their wealth and power is still not as great as the wealthiest and the most powerful. So it will take more than money to solve this problem, it will take a lot of people, millions of people. All these mass surveillance tools that the wealthy and powerful have built to monitor citizens, can now be used to monitor these wealthy and powerful criminals. They built this prison for themselves, and citizens should honor their request to be locked up.

Net Worth - Market Value - Payment - Income

Most don't want to be a billionaire. A founding economic principle that everyone is motivated by 'unlimited wants', stuck on a consumerist treadmill and striving to accumulate as much wealth as they can, is untrue, say the authors of a new study. They found that those with unlimited wants tended to be younger and city-dwellers, who placed more value on success, power, and independence. Unlimited wants were also more common in countries with greater acceptance of inequality and in countries that are more collectivistic: focused more on group than individual responsibilities and outcomes.

You Want It All, But You Can't Have It - epic..faith no more 1989 - Can you feel it, see it, hear it today? If you can't, then it doesn't matter anyway, You will never understand it cuz it happens too fast, And it feels so good, it's like walking on glass
It's so cool, it's so hip, it's alright, It's so groovy, it's outta sight, You can touch it, smell it, taste it so sweet, But it makes no difference cuz it knocks you off your feet. You want it all but you can't have it. It's cryin', bleedin', lying on the floor, So you lay down on it and you do it some more, You've got to share it, so you dare it, Then you bare it and you tear it, You want it all but you can't have it, It's in your face but you can't grab it, It's alive, afraid, a lie, a sin, It's magic, it's tragic, it's a loss, it's a win, It's dark, it's moist, it's a bitter pain, It's sad it happened and it's a shame, You want it all but you can't have it, It's in your face but you can't grab it, What is it? It's it, What is it?...

Boss made a dollar, Grandad made a dime, But that was a poem, From a simpler time. Boss made a thousand, Gave my pa a cent, But that penny bought a mortgage, Or at least it paid the rent. Now boss makes a million, And gives us jack, Smugly blames his workers, For the labor that he lacks.

Boss made a dollar, I made a dime, That was a poem From a simpler time. Now boss makes a thousand, And gives us a cent, While he's got employees, Who can't pay the rent. So when boss makes a million, And the workers make jack, That's when we strike, And take our lives back.
