(but the super poor show up on TV, not the super rich, they want to stay anonymous and hide their wealth in panama (a tax haven))
if those that are highly intelligent, do not earn more, than those that are stupid, there will be mass stupidity.
Neither Einstein nor Nikola Tesla (both genius in their fields of expertise (physics and electricity)) became very rich in this system.
Even worse Nikola Tesla died poor and lonely in a f***ing hotel.
“On 7 January 1943, at the age of 86, Tesla died alone in Room 3327 of the Hotel New Yorker. His body was later found by maid Alice Monaghan after she had entered Tesla’s room, ignoring the “do not disturb” sign that Tesla had placed on his door two days earlier.”
(but he was as hard working as lucky selling his first internet startup to compaq for $10million, then founding PayPal selling it to eBay for $1billion, funding tesla and spacex (both very high risk companies))
everyone deserves to be happy (happiness in the buddhist sense is sustainablelasting satisfaction, be in balance/at peace with oneself and the world surrounding).
consciousness should be considered to be an important part what makes humans intelligent.
without conscious decision making, the most powerful tools (logic is just a tool) are put to bad use that could – in the end – endanger the survival of all mankind.
but who cares, if capitalism turned 90% of mankind into a bunch of ignorant, egoistic, idiotic, individualists that do not care about anything or anyone but themselves.
if those that get paid most, destroy mankind.
this needs to get better, otherwise the motivation if those that try to rescue mankind is seriously damaged and transits to desilution and isolation and “acceptance” of what seems to be impossible to change: the death of all mankind.
the dying out process has already begun with women subconsciously already knowing its going to end bad, no matter the state pays for childcare.
u can print money (if money is paper or digital)
u can not print planets, water, clean air, food or consciousness
Draghi compares the recovery efforts from corona crisis similar to rebuilding after world war 2.
“Mr Draghi said European governments faced “a moral imperative” to invest in educating young people. “The debt created by the pandemic is unprecedented and will have to be repaid mainly by those who are young today,” he said.”
He is now appointed to the Vatican as a consultant.
thanks a lot all involved!
if all that billions and billions not actually flow into small and medium sized businesses – they will just evaporate without any real economic effects.
nice words never forced anyone to change, unless they become law like force every bank to give x billions every year in loans to small and medium sized businesses or face “a fine” and give that money in -3% loans to the state.
like “Hey Shell, don’t you want to invest 3% of income (before taxes) into renewables?” so that future generations actually can survive on this planet?
“Hey Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Google (and others) don’t you wanna pay at least 10% tax on income?”
(while in many EU countries the average Joe pays 50% in tax and more)
make a law! damn it!
to hell and back:
baby boomers should stop preparing hell for generation x rather help their children survive.
riots against the ECB
“Riots erupted outside the ECB’s new $1.3 billion headquarters in March after thousands of protesters gathered to rage against an institution they blame for ruining the lives of millions in the eurozone.
Draghi has been credited with taking bold steps to save Europe from financial disaster: First in 2012 with his famous promise to do “whatever it takes” to prevent the euro from falling apart, and again early this year by launching a $1.3 trillion stimulus program to get the economy moving.
But the ECB is also a high-profile symbol of the austerity that has caused hardship for millions across the region. Together with the International Monetary Fund and European Commission, it formed the so-called “troika” to police bailouts that kept countries such as Greece, Ireland and Portugal afloat.”
“On April 15, 2015, (Josephine) Witt disturbed a press conference of the European Central Bank, jumping onto the table in front of ECB president Mario Draghi yelling “end the ECB dick-tatorship” [sic] and tossing confetti over Draghi. After being dragged out and briefly detained, Witt wrote on Twitter that the protest was not associated with FEMEN, and that she was a “freelance activist.” Her protest was in opposition to the bank’s policies, which she describes as “European neo-liberalism” and economic inequality. Speaking after her release, Witt said “The gap between the rich and the poor is bigger here than it’s ever been before.””
