corruption

while this book says, only “catastrophe” can reset inequality in society…

… peaceful ways are also possible.

there is hope… because: peaceful leveling is POSSIBLE!

Dr Roberto Iacono (Associate Professor in Economics and Social Policy at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU))

“inequality decreased significantly in Finland mainly due to inclusive growth from 1850 to 1900 in the absence of both disasters and wars”

democracy vs money?

and this Chase Bank advertisement surely shows what the problems are (the almost complete LOSS of CONTROL of the DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED POLITICIANS over the (largely mafia fraudulent) FINANCE and TAX AVOIDANCE sector aka the finance sector aka THE BANKS (including the reckless cash money printing central banks then effectively blackmailing the gov whenever this goes wrong (2008 subprime-(bank)-financial crisis)).

while those memes are funny…

Putin Macron Bernie Sanders MEMEit is important to listen to both sides, because one sided views WILL be bad informed (here the general media do a very very poor job).

same author:

Scheidel: “how to fix democracy”

  • nationalism will make things worse
    • Hitler did some “good” at the beginning (creating jobs with government money (building highways) and making farmers get better fair pay, before going “full mad man believing to be god” killing millions, destroying jobs & wealth & genocide
  • of course: the rich are very afraid of reforms (tax and gov taking away banks, companies and real estate for compensation) & revolutions (taking away of banks, companies and real estate without compensation , which can be very turbulent violent (French revolution)).
  • “fun” fact: the Russian Zar (ex King of Russia) actually wanted to reform Russia like UK, but the revolution was “faster” and reforms could not be implemented fast enough (Zar basically like the Queen of UK down from power but keeping some privileges)

THE RICH SHOULD ALSO BE AFRAID AND AVOID WAR AT ALL COSTS BECAUSE WHAT COMES AFTER WILL GREATLY reduce their wealth!

A classic case of #DeathEconomy: Covid brings to light, what was already there before Covid, how money driven egoism and greed literately means death for mankind.

In this case healthcare systems and workers, doctors and nurses on the brink of collapse.

The root cause? Hospital greed. It is the result of decades of mismanagement in a money-driven hospital system that prioritizes profit over patient safety. Far from a shortage, there’s never been more licensed nurses in America — they’re just not being hired.”

read it here: The New York Times

maybe not everything should be run like a profit center
maybe not everything should be run like a profit center

Americans you are not alone in this – it is EXACTLY the same all over Europe with politicians changing little bits of laws here and there, to privatize hospitals and allow big fat fiat money investors from Saudi oil companies to London hedge funds to buy up healthcare assets all over the planet – not in order to do good – what’s best for the patient – but what’s good for profit.

a catastrophe for doctors that want to do good.

a catastrophe for patients that do not want to lose their house, because of a broken leg.

there is one word for that: corruption.

those politicians and their lobby advisors should go to jail for at least 10 years – for hurting their own people – acting against the interest of the nation and damaging trust and democracy.

basically for treason.

here are two other visual examples:

#wtf #mankind seriously?

maybe sapiens ain’t so sapiens after all?

    • Elon says “I am not Satoshi Nakamoto” (the “inventor” whitepaper ghost writer of bitcoin) (many people have claimed to be Nakamoto to get famous)
    • What is the current monetary system? (FED, ECB)
      • Elon: “a bunch of mainframes running ancient cobol”
    • What is money?
      • Elon: “a database for resource allocation”
      • comment: yes, that is what money should be and those resources should be allocated in a way that makes sense – sense like: ensure the sustainable (ongoing) survival of mankind – but it is not – it is: whoever is sitting closest to the FIAT money printing press, is getting “rich” (allocates a senseless amount of resources for himself/herself/family while starving the rest of the planet)
      • it is broken broken broken: FED buys “value”papers issued by companies $ 120 billion A MONTH (!) with self-printed money
        • while telling the people “it’s okay” or it will be “temporary” (La Guarde ECB), because the THEORY is: if banks print money and give it to banks for buying stocks (trade paper against paper) there will be no inflation, in 2021/2022 everyone knows: ANOTHER DAMN LIE TO EXPLOIT PEOPLE!
      • Elon falesly (like 99% of all people) think the goverment makes the monetary rules and prints the money, guess what, that is not true, the privilege of seniourage (the right to print money) was taken away from the government (the state) to a “independent” entity, because the government would probably missuse this privilege and print too much money, well exactly what is happening now X-D
        • Old French seigneuriage, “right of the lord (seigneur) to mint money”
    • What is good about bitcoin and fundamentally different to the current monetary system: it is distributed, not centralized (anyone with computers and energy can run it)
