There’s that damned song in my head again.

Eventually the super wealthy will fall, its just a question of how and when. Money supplies are finite. Eventually there will be nothing left to bleed from the poor.

When the modern capitalist system being a truly global apparatus, and the power of the individual nation state to curb financial inequality at all time low, who the hell exactly is going to take the money out of the idle bank accounts of these billionaires?

I think it would take a Marxist revolution in Switzerland before that sort of the thing will ever happen.

Most of the powerful political figures in the world, both the west and the east are from this class, which manifests itself in flaccid regulatory and tax regimes rigged in this classes favor through out the planet.

I don’t want to pessimistic, but it probably take something like a world wide leftward turn in political zeitgeist to derail this financial oligarchy, which seems bent on making the lives of the lower classes(because there really is no middle class any more, and the only one that qualifies are the highly educated professionals like doctors, lawyers, and engineers) as difficult as possible.

Yeah, I don’t think they care. Pretty sure it (wealth) will have to be taken by force. Taxes are the peaceful vehicle to do it. If leaders can’t get that done, then there will be more violence and poverty.

Obviously, government regulations are hampering the little guy from opening his own business and taking advantage of the capitalist system.

blah, blah, blah

re: #3 subterraneanhomesickalien

I’m not sure it’s going to require the whole world to turn left, just the West plus maybe China and Japan. To paraphrase my favourite writer (roughly, going from memory here), “If the countries in the G8 decide they want their taxes they can get them.”

Most of the business goes through the West, plus China and Japan. The rest of the world has neither the infrastructure nor the trust to replace them. So, in my opinion, this corruption could easily be reined in.

If the will existed.
