Big Solution: Tax Away the Rich Like Treating Fouls in Sports

Request: Please share with others. I, for example, can no longer share on Facebook, having been locked out of my account.

(no weekend videos post this weekend – I had no time for it; instead a little write of an important thought)

The option to think about is not merely having the ultra-rich “pay their fair share” in taxes by raising the marginal tax rate to a measly 70% or such while letting them continue to be an elevated ruling class – much like the medieval aristocrats – based on hoarded wealth. Rather we need to think about using taxes to peacefully (no guns or guillotines) dethrone the rich ruling class by simply placing a cap on wealth and income inequality. It’s just like rules in a sports game. Each football and baseball field has limits, a border, an outer line the players can’t cross to seek paths to victory elsewhere. A boxing ring has it’s border the boxers can’t cross. When they do, they lose.

That’s the principle we must apply to our steep economic pyramid that forms a dung heap society of enormous precariousness, anxiety, poverty, excessive hoarded wealth, and widespread suffering. Our current pyramid actually has standing on top of it a thin spire of the super-rich which goes miles high into sky while far below them there is a very broad base of countless people who are condemned to have more debt than assets, a negative net value, and be stuck in a poverty trap created by this system.

When someone manages to lift themselves up “by their bootstraps” it just means someone else sinks down into the poor base as long as the shape of this pyramid stays the same. We need to flatten it, lowering the top and elevating the bottom (with means like universal basic income and gradual transfer of corporate stocks into public funds (Universal Basic Dividend) securing us all from poverty), just like a sports field is properly shaped, so that there are no lords and serfs; so that people can play with merit pay and compete as they please if they want (or not if it doesn’t please them), while living in a calm, safe, and stable system that gives us a Good Life for All.

Videos Exposing the Creepy Billionaires

Dear fiends, I am currently away from home. So this last week I could not check out numerous potentially good new videos of human trouble and people power for change to thereafter share the best I come across. To not leave this weekend blank, here is a reminder of videos shared over three years ago highly revealing the widespread sociopathic corruption, infantility, and inhumanity among the super rich. (yep, I have yet to meet one who can be considered human)

These videos were spread over the popular four-article “Vapid Lives of Destruction” series I published – the link to which can be found in the “More…” menu at the top, but today also right here:

Vapid Lives of Destruction

One of these videos has been removed from YouTube (and apparently the whole Internet) by now, at least by the title it had. Searching for it, I either found it again with a different title, or at least a very similar one:

Lifting the secretive veil on life as a billionaire’s pleasure wife | 60 Minutes Australia ~ 60 Minutes Australia (Oct 23, 2017, length: 11:13)

So, if you saw them already 3 years ago, watching them again as a reminder won’t be a bad idea. And if they are new to you, freshly go for them. 😉

Wakeful Video Weekend 2021-05-16 (14 videos)

Summary: Many of this week’s videos struck me as meager. The ones I am sharing I have therefore split in three groups – top (4), medium (3), and OK (7).

Israel: One of the reasons for poor videos this week may be the spike of Israel war crimes addressed by everyone in mass and alternative media. I prefer not to waste time on those events because the fact that Israel is a Neo-Nazi Regime created by a tiny percentage of Jewish Holocaust survivors to conquer foreign land and treat their closest relatives on Earth (Palestinians, the other branch of descendants of their mid-eastern ancestors (this is merely my personal guess, I admit)) the same way thievish and murderous Nazi fascists had treated them (or some far away close or remote relatives). There is nothing new to this and the disgusting mistreatment of Palestinians (slaying, disenfranchising, and throwing them out from their own land) by Israel, nor the ignoring of these crimes by all other countries’ governments. *sigh* – Not new enough for me to waste time on, unless a decent solution were on the horizon. Mostly because human suffering has become rampant globally by now, and we must all learn to clean our own doorstep (the corrupt politics and economy of our own countries) to save ourselves and thereby finally gain the strength to save others. Being distracted with a focus on a small group of victims when most of us are now in big trouble, is – to me – just another distraction useful for our sociopathic oligarchic lords who don’t want our sick global system (and national sections of it) to be fixed. And let’s not overlook the much more huge genocides committed by the U.S. military complex, either. It’s possible that I missed an important new point, but the reason I didn’t look into these news (having very limited time struggling to survive myself) is hopefully understandable. I did eventually glance into the Israel war crimes videos and came across two quite sharable ones (shared below). — If you want to look deeper into how to oppose Zionism effectively, read this article by John Spritzler: LISTEN ANTI-ZIONIST!
