Wealth is not a Talent

To the left is the Walton family (I say that ironically).

There is absolutely nothing special about them whatsoever…other than their obscene wealth.

Their talent didn’t make them rich. The fact that their father was Sam Walton, founder of the evil Walmart megastore, is what made them rich.

Their talent does not keep them rich. They simply use their wealth to hire talented people to skew the American economic system so that they continue to get richer and richer every year, regardless of what they do.

How many people saw their wealth increase by 84% in the past five (5) years?

Pretty much the only people in our economic system who saw anything remotely close to that were in the richest one per cent (1%), or to be even more precise: the richest 0.1%.

The billionaires.

*****

It’s not hard to see what’s wrong here.

In fact, the problem is very easy to see: the rich are too rich, so rich in fact that they use nothing but their wealth alone to further enrich themselves.

They have used their wealth to skew our political and economic system to the point where the only people even allowed to get rich are the people who are already filthy rich.

This is not sustainable.

The money that we need to spend to make this world sustainable and habitable for the foreseeable future is being hoarded by multi-billionaires and used to make them even richer.

This is a mile-high house of cards doomed to fail.

It’s only a matter of time.

The rich are eating our seed corn.

The earth is on the brink of inflammation.

The rich won’t lift a finger to fix things unless they can figure out how to get rich in the process, and the COVID-19 vaccine debacle is proof positive of that claim.

We’re in a serious fucking mess here.

The rich could save us…but they won’t.

Wow…a whole million dollars….
