    There will be people who tell you it’s your fault. That you aren’t trying hard enough. But those people are culprits in perpetuating a great lie of this period in history. The standard assumptions for how to be successful in life a few decades ago simply do not apply anymore. The guilt and shame you feel is the mental disease of late-stage capitalism. Embrace this truth and set yourself free.

    To see how broken things have become you’ll have to think systemically.Take note of the systems built up to create this situation and understand how it came to be — so you’ll see why it cannot possibly continue on its current path.

    First, a diagnosis of the problem:

    A Global Architecture of Wealth Extraction has been systematically built up to rig the economic game against you. This is why a tiny number of people (current count is 62) have more wealth amongst them than half the human population. Decades of those using tax havens to hide their wealth, unfair trade agreements designed to extract wealth from poor countries, banking regulations and austerity measures meant to destabilize entire economies so massive transfers of wealth can go from everyone else to a tiny financial elite, and election rules that all-but-guarantee only those who become whores to these financial pimps will ever sit in high office.

    You do realize there are billionaires in that list like Soros who promote all the big government bullshit you demand and then some only so that a centralized few can control you?

    I realize you're a com....

    I can't do that here.

    I realize you believe leftist sociopaths like Soros are trying to "make the world better" or some vacuous shit like that, but the fact is what happens when the policies leftists promote get implemented the country goes down the shitter.

    It's been proven here at great length and in many ways, yet you choose to ignore all the facts and came here for protection from the ridicule you deserve.

    Good luck with that....

    Low skilled people aren't very productive.

    I like earning my own money, not having it taken from someone else.

    Richest 1% now owns half the world's wealth

    Actually it takes 1% of the population to hold half the world's wealth. Unless the world only has 6,200 people in it you are sadly poor at math, lying and easily misled.

    Creating envy between people really benefits no one.

    62 People Have More Wealth Amongst Them Than Half The Human Population

    There is no conflict between those statements.
    The bottom half don't have very much wealth.

    Meanwhile, the wealth of the richest 62 has increased by more than half a trillion dollars to $1.76tr.

    The poorest 3.7 billion have $1.76 trillion in wealth, about $475 each.
    Total world wealth is $280 trillion.
    The top 74 million people own over $140 trillion, averages about $1.9 million each.

    18% of the top 74 million are Americans.
