The wealthy have so fucked up this world

Look at the timidness of some countries for example like China it's half ass stand up against russia.
It's ALWAYS about the money,maintaining the lifestyle of a few rich fuckers that get in the way of good social changes always.
There's the sacred market which in reality screws most people so they never get ahead
and most people cant afford to buy shares of anything..
Yet capitalist assholes wail whenever their precious profits might go down a tiny percent as they push more
burdens on people least able to afford it to maintain that lifestyle.
What about the precious shareholders...
While companies buy back their own stocks..
and tax cut after tax cut just for the richest..
I wonder who these mysterious shareholders are..
Why a huge percent are rich people of course!

The fucking rich just to maintain their lavish lifestyles fuck up our lives demanding more and more
as they dodge paying taxes,bread and circuses, write our laws, cram religion and advertising manipulation,undermine education,
deny universal healthcare, run prisons for profits,buy the justice system,
Keep the likes of OAN,faux and newsmax on life support,on tv,
use our own bodies, biology and psychology against us,
create a stratified fake social hierarchy and pretend god made it so,start class wars
,support crime mafias,start wars between nations to control other countries resources,
criminals that launder their blood money, brainwash via religion,
create addicts,and skew the mainstream news.

The wealthy pigs love to control us and keep us desperate,and to believe we are dependent upon them.
We are taught from cradle to grave we must buy into this nightmare with the best years of our lives,our
dreams denied, families pushed to the back burner,soul eating stress and hardship..

Having more money you could ever spend in 10 lifetimes isn't enough to satisfy the rich
they have to dominate,work and deprive the world too. They will never be satisfied..
So why keep paying for these oligarchs lavish lifestyles for? Trickle down is a lie.

When will more people realize we don't need rich fuckers and their financial games to survive.
That we don't have to live the lives they want us to live. They push us out to work as covid floats in the air,
make cars a necessity that are literally killing this planet to get paid for making them more money..

We need each other, the people who are not dark triad personality types.

It never had to be this way.


I am so mad at the countries wimping out over the lifestyles and money rather than condemn putrid's war crimes and help Ukraine.

2. Thank you.

I've come to accept that I won't see the end of unfettered capitalism in my lifetime, but I'm still hoping my kids and my future grandchildren will see changes in theirs.

3. Sanders wants to bring back the 90% tax bracket-- the one that was used after WWII to build

infrastructure and educational assistance.

But no one will listen because they all know which side of the bread is buttered.

5. Greed is a human condition.

Animals don't collect more than they need. I never understood the whole idea of wanting more, more, more. In Norway, or is it Sweden, everyone is content to be comfortable and that is sufficient. People are happy, well adjusted, etc. They even have a word for it. I saw it on a No Reservations episode with Tony Bourdain.

6. Wonderful rant against the billionaire parasites.

I am totally with you! For most of us, our profit over people every time capitalism is a soul sucking black hole.

A swamp, perhaps, filled with credit traps and debt quicksand.

7. I submit that there are two different kinds of wealthy.

There are the ones who want to be rich and go into businesses like finance in order to achieve that. These are the world destroyers. They try to selfishly grab as much as they can for themselves.

Then there are the ones who simply want to create or produce something useful and wealth becomes a side effect of their success.
These people often don't have extreme wealth as a goal in itself and may use it to help society like Bill Gates with his charity foundations.

9. You tell it!

I agree with everything you "ranted" about. It's what I've been screaming for years. In fact, when my DoD department refused to allow me to telecommute, even though 100% of my job was on WiFi only (even sitting at the office desk!), I quit... actually, retired early. I didn't want to... I only had two years to go to retirement. But with my lupus and fibromyalgia, the time had come when I couldn't do 8 hour days, 5 days a week, and then go home and work some more on the distance lessons I was creating, validating, uploading, and testing. I only lived 5 blocks from the office, and, like I said, everything I did was on WiFi, even in the office. But I had a "butts in the seat" department head, and a manager who refused to be drawn into "conflict."

So, hubby and I sat down and cut out everything we didn't need or could live without, and the next time I tried to reason with my manager and he came with a "no"... I just said, "Cool... I quit. There's a lot of other things I want to do in my life before I die. And like some intelligent person once said, "no one died saying, 'I wish I'd spent more time in the office.' (LOL)

It hurts us financially, since my hubby retired early several years earlier when his contract ended and another wasn't forthcoming. But you know what, it's allowed us to concentrate on what's really important in life -- our fur kids, my daughter and grandsons, and most important of all, each other. We still have fun, we just have fun that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

The cost of living (inflation) is really hitting us hard right now, but we're weathering it, knowing that eventually it'll all even out.

Meanwhile, the fat cats buying back their stocks are living like kings, and getting away with every crime under the sun. Cost of living is one thing. But what I want most is JUSTICE. Justice for those like me, pushed out of our jobs because of our age and disability, and for those who are worse off than we are. I want the whole R party and everything they stand for taken down and taken out... to be repudiated and gone forever. Cruelty will no longer be the point of laws -- it'll be struck from every law on the books.

10. Wealth is an addictive drug, just like cocaine.

More is never enough.

11. The both-sides-my-vote-doesn't-count people who can vote and don't, are to blame.
