ZCommunications » Richest 1% of people own nearly half of global wealth

The richest 1% of the world’s population are getting wealthier, owning more than 48% of global wealth, according to a report published on Tuesday which warned growing inequality could be a trigger for recession.

According to the Credit Suisse global wealth report (pdf), a person needs just $3,650 – including the value of equity in their home – to be among the wealthiest half of world citizens. However, more than $77,000 is required to be a member of the top 10% of global wealth holders, and $798,000 to belong to the top 1%.

“Taken together, the bottom half of the global population own less than 1% of total wealth. In sharp contrast, the richest decile hold 87% of the world’s wealth, and the top percentile alone account for 48.2% of global assets,” said the annual report, now in its fifth year.

The report, which calculates that total global wealth has grown to a new record – $263tn, more than twice the $117tn calculated for 2000 – found that the UK was the only country in the G7 to have recorded rising inequality in the 21st century.

Its findings were seized upon by anti-poverty campaigners Oxfam which published research at the start of the year showing that the richest 85 people across the globe share a combined wealth of £1tn, as much as the poorest 3.5 billion of the world’s population.

“These figures give more evidence that inequality is extreme and growing, and that economic recovery following the financial crisis has been skewed in favour of the wealthiest. In poor countries, rising inequality means the difference between children getting the chance to go to school and sick people getting life saving medicines,” said Oxfam’s head of inequality Emma Seery.

The age of loneliness is killing us | George Monbiot | Comment is free | The Guardian

So what’s the point? What do we gain from this war of all against all? Competition drives growth, but growth no longer makes us wealthier. Figures published this week show that, while the income of company directors has risen by more than a fifth, wages for the workforce as a whole have fallen in real terms over the past year. The bosses earn – sorry, I mean take – 120 times more than the average full-time worker. (In 2000, it was 47 times). And even if competition did make us richer, it would make us no happier, as the satisfaction derived from a rise in income would be undermined by the aspirational impacts of competition.

The top 1% own 48% of global wealth, but even they aren’t happy. A survey by Boston College of people with an average net worth of $78m found that they too were assailed by anxiety, dissatisfaction and loneliness. Many of them reported feeling financially insecure: to reach safe ground, they believed, they would need, on average, about 25% more money. (And if they got it? They’d doubtless need another 25%). One respondent said he wouldn’t get there until he had $1bn in the bank.

For this, we have ripped the natural world apart, degraded our conditions of life, surrendered our freedoms and prospects of contentment to a compulsive, atomising, joyless hedonism, in which, having consumed all else, we start to prey upon ourselves. For this, we have destroyed the essence of humanity: our connectedness.

The Inner Thoughts Of The Amoral Rich Who Rule Over Us

“An illusion it will be, so large, so vast it will escape their perception.

Those who will see it will be thought of as insane. We will create separate fronts to prevent them from seeing the connection between us. We will behave as if we are not connected to keep the illusion alive. Our goal will be accomplished one drop at a time so as to never bring suspicion upon ourselves. This will also prevent them from seeing the changes as they occur.

“We will always stand above the relative field of their experience for we know the secrets of the absolute. We will work together always and will remain bound by blood and secrecy. Death will come to he who speaks.

“We will keep their lifespan short and their minds weak while pretending to do the opposite. We will use our knowledge of science and technology in subtle ways so they will never see what is happening. We will use soft metals, aging accelerators and sedatives in food and water, also in the air. They will be blanketed by poisons everywhere they turn.

The soft metals will cause them to lose their minds. We will promise to find a cure from our many fronts, yet we will feed them more poison. The poisons will be absorbed through their skin and mouths, they will destroy their minds and reproductive systems. From all this, their children will be born dead, and we will conceal this information.

The poisons will be hidden in everything that surrounds them, in what they drink, eat, breathe and wear. We must be ingenious in dispensing the poisons for they can see far. We will teach them that the poisons are good, with fun images and musical tones. Those they look up to will help. We will enlist them to push our poisons.

“They will see our products being used in film and will grow accustomed to them and will never know their true effect. When they give birth we will inject poisons into the blood of their children and convince them its for their help. We will start early on, when their minds are young, we will target their children with what children love most, sweet things.

When their teeth decay we will fill them with metals that will kill their mind and steal their future. When their ability to learn has been affected, we will create medicine that will make them sicker and cause other diseases for which we will create yet more medicine. We will render them docile and weak before us by our power. They will grow depressed, slow and obese, and when they come to us for help, we will give them more poison.

“We will focus their attention toward money and material goods so they many never connect with their inner self. We will distract them with fornication, external pleasures and games so they may never be one with the oneness of it all. Their minds will belong to us and they will do as we say. If they refuse we shall find ways to implement mind-altering technology into their lives.

We will use fear as our weapon. We will establish their governments and establish opposites within. We will own both sides. We will always hide our objective but carry out our plan. They will perform the labor for us and we shall prosper from their toil.

“Our families will never mix with theirs. Our blood must be pure always, for it is the way. We will make them kill each other when it suits us. We will keep them separated from the oneness by dogma and religion. We will control all aspects of their lives and tell them what to think and how. We will guide them kindly and gently letting them think they are guiding themselves.

We will foment animosity between them through our factions. When a light shall shine among them, we shall extinguish it by ridicule, or death, whichever suits us best. We will make them rip each other’s hearts apart and kill their own children. We will accomplish this by using hate as our ally, anger as our friend. The hate will blind them totally, and never shall they see that from their conflicts we emerge as their rulers.

They will be busy killing each other. They will bathe in their own blood and kill their neighbors for as long as we see fit.

“We will benefit greatly from this, for they will not see us, for they cannot see us. We will continue to prosper from their wars and their deaths. We shall repeat this over and over until our ultimate goal is accomplished. We will continue to make them live in fear and anger though images and sounds. We will use all the tools we have to accomplish this. The tools will be provided by their labor. We will make them hate themselves and their neighbors.

“We will always hide the divine truth from them, that we are all one. This they must never know! They must never know that color is an illusion, they must always think they are not equal. Drop by drop, drop by drop we will advance our goal. We will take over their land, resources and wealth to exercise total control over them. We will deceive them into accepting laws that will steal the little freedom they will have. We will establish a money system that will imprison them forever, keeping them and their children in debt.

“When they shall ban together, we shall accuse them of crimes and present a different story to the world for we shall own all the media. We will use our media to control the flow of information and their sentiment in our favor. When they shall rise up against us we will crush them like insects, for they are less than that. They will be helpless to do anything for they will have no weapons.

“We will recruit some of their own to carry out our plans, we will promise them eternal life, but eternal life they will never have for they are not of us. The recruits will be called “initiates” and will be indoctrinated to believe false rites of passage to higher realms. Members of these groups will think they are one with us never knowing the truth.

They must never learn this truth for they will turn against us. For their work they will be rewarded with earthly things and great titles, but never will they become immortal and join us, never will they receive the light and travel the stars. They will never reach the higher realms, for the killing of their own kind will prevent passage to the realm of enlightenment. This they will never know.

The truth will be hidden in their face, so close they will not be able to focus on it until its too late. Oh yes, so grand the illusion of freedom will be, that they will never know they are our slaves.

“When all is in place, the reality we will have created for them will own them. This reality will be their prison. They will live in self-delusion. When our goal is accomplished a new era of domination will begin. Their minds will be bound by their beliefs, the beliefs we have established from time immemorial.

“But if they ever find out they are our equal, we shall perish then. THIS THEY MUST NEVER KNOW. If they ever find out that together they can vanquish us, they will take action. They must never, ever find out what we have done, for if they do, we shall have no place to run, for it will be easy to see who we are once the veil has fallen. Our actions will have revealed who we are and they will hunt us down and no person shall give us shelter.

“This is the secret covenant by which we shall live the rest of our present and future lives, for this reality will transcend many generations and life spans. This covenant is sealed by blood, our blood. We, the ones who from heaven to earth came.”

“This covenant must NEVER, EVER be known to exist.

It must NEVER, EVER be written or spoken of for if it is, the consciousness it will spawn will release the fury of the PRIME CREATOR upon us and we shall be cast to the depths from whence we came and remain there until the end time of infinity itself.”

Όταν Πέφτουν Τα Χρηματιστήρια… Δεν Με Ενδιαφέρει

Έμαθα σήμερα ότι έπεσαν τα χρηματιστήρια παγκοσμίως. Βλέπω που βγαίνουν στα κανάλια τρομοκρατημένοι, οι παπαγάλοι του συστήματος, οι δημοσιογράφοι. Το μόνο που σκέφτομαι καθώς τους βλέπω να κλαίγονται είναι το πόσο στα αρχίδια μου τους γράφω και αυτούς και τα χρηματιστήρια τους και τις αγορές τους.

Διάολοι μπάσταρδοι πλούσιοι κάνατε τον κόσμο κόλαση σαν τις ψυχές σας και όσο προσπαθώ να μην έχω μίσος στην καρδιά μου για σας, επειδή είναι αμαρτία, το βρίσκω δύσκολο να μην σας μισώ από τα βάθη της ψυχής μου που κλέψατε τα όνειρα όλων μας με την ατελείωτη απληστία και κενοδοξία σας.

Το βρίσκω δύσκολο να μην σας μισώ που φτιάξατε έναν κόσμο στον οποίο υπερηφανεύεστε συνέχεια για τα επιτεύγματα των πλουσίων στα MME, ενώ ταυτόχρονα αρνείσται την κάθε ελπίδα προόδου στους φτωχούς.

Σκατά να φάτε και εσείς και τα χρηματιστήρια και οι αγορές, δεν με ενδιαφέρει! Ό,τι και να γίνει, είτε πέσουν είτε ανεβούν, εγώ παραμένω φτωχός και δεν υπάρχει ελπίδα να αλλάξει αυτό, γιατί να με νοιάξει και αν όλος ο κόσμος καεί;

Και ο θάνατος να έρθει απλά θα με ελευθερώσει από έναν ατελείωτο εφιάλτη. Έναν εφιάλτη που τον δημιούργησαν όλοι οι διάσημοι, πλούσιοι, “επιτυχημένοι”, όλη η σαπίλα που κυριαρχεί την γη.

Αλλά με ενδιαφέρει για τον κόσμο επειδή εύχομαι μια μέρα να ξυπνήσουν οι άνθρωποι και να αποφασίσουν επιτελούς να πάψουν να προσκυνάν αδειανούς celebrities και να σταματήσουν να έχουν σαν υπέρτατη αξία μόνο τα χρήματα και τις αγορές.

Ο κάθε φτωχός ζει έναν αργό βασανιστικό θάνατο καθώς αναγκάζεται να είναι σκλάβος για τους παρακμιακούς, άψυχους, αηδιαστικούς, αναίσθητους πλούσιους. Δεν μας ρώτησε κανείς ποτέ αν θέλουμε να είμαστε δούλοι. Και εμείς δεν πρέπει να ρωτήσουμε όταν έρθει η ώρα να τους σταματήσουμε πια.

Πότε θα σταματήσει η γενοκτονία των φτωχών; Από την εποχή των Σουμερίων άρχισε η τάση να κυριαρχούν αριστοκράτες και διάφοροι άρχοντες. Από τότε οι φτωχοί βασανίζονται σχεδόν ασταμάτητα καθώς οι πλούσιοι ζούσαν γεμάτοι χάρες και ηδονές… Σε τόσους λαούς και περιόδους γινόταν το ίδιο. Καιρός είναι να σταματήσει αυτό το βρώμικο σύστημα.

Στην αρχαία Ελλάδα άρχισε η ύπαρξη της δημοκρατίας στην γη, μια αξιόλογη νέα μορφή κοινωνικής οργάνωσης που ήταν καινοτόμη και βελτίωσε τις ζωές των ανθρώπων. Πριν την δημοκρατια κανεις δεν φανταζοταν οτι μπορει να υπαρξει τετοιο συστημα και πολλοι την πολέμησαν. Καιρός είναι να αρχίσει ξανά μια νέα μορφή κοινωνικής δομής δίχως άρχοντες και πλούσιους και τώρα το πολεμούν πολλοί και πολλοί πιστεύουν ότι δεν γίνεται.

Αλλά τι λέω και εγώ, προτιμάτε να είστε δούλοι επειδή αλλιώς θα χρειαζόταν να σκεφτείτε που και που. Απαίσιοι άρχοντες υπάρχουν μόνο όταν τους αφήνουν να υπάρχουν ένας σάπιος, υπόδουλος λαός….
