Not surprisingly but also sadly it takes a Nobel prize winning MIT professor named Robert Solow, or a previously mentioned Thomas Piketty, to warn you for the obvious future in which the very very few will rule the many. It of course was never any different (I mean: ever wondered who owns all the printed money and landmass?) but lately it is becoming abundantly blatant.
Why do you think the media addressed the recent Powerball lottery with a jackpot of more than a billion? I have my doubts that amount will in fact be paid to someone but besides that it is the term billionaire that sticks. Every amount less doesn't count these days.
Yet there is more than enough money to end poverty overnight when redistributed differently and with the mindset that poverty is a disgrace to mankind.
America as promoted is the land of the free and home of the brave but soon the whole earth becomes the world of the fee and home of the slave..and as always: simply reflecting our collective mindset.
If it is not abundantly clear to you by now that violence begets violence than actually you 'deserve' the guaranteed misery that comes from it.
So now that people are supposed to believe that some Paris attackers were refugees we can safely assume it will lead to great tension between people in Europe. Add to that all the new laws, state surveillance and other 'security' measurements which of course only will enhance this tension. People simply shouldn't allow themselves to be divided nor resort to violence for it only will beget more violence, don't you know? Can we stay calm and effectively tackle the 'terror' problem? We will see in the very near future and I certainly hope so but at the same time don't think so.
Notice how Tony Blair admits that the rise of ISIS is related to the second invasion of Iraq not to mention the many thousends of unnecessary victims on all sides except the for the group who controls these events.
