"Economic inequality is set to reach a worrying tipping point next year, when the richest 1 percent will control more than half of the world's wealth.
That's the prediction from the charity Oxfam, which will deliver its report on the world's growing wealth gap at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, which kicks off on Wednesday. The report tracks the startling rise in the fortunes of the world's rich, who have seen their control of global wealth rise from 44 percent in 2009 to 48 percent in 2014.
Oxfam is aiming to gain the notice of the world's leaders at Davos, where billionaires gather to discuss some of the planet's most pressing issues, such as climate change and and Ebola.
Yet observers may wonder if the report's message will fall on deaf ears, especially given the attendees at Davos include many of the world's richest people, including Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt, who is worth $8.1 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires index."
I have an idea. It's real real simple. No political crap from culture wars. None of that evil noise they use to keep us hating each other.
None of that...none.
Everyone leaves their jobs classes homes if homeless their shelters alleys. We all leave the cruel "game in progress", and and march to where the wealthy live, and play. We all go in Peaceful silence, and then ask them "Why?"
Peacefully go to their door fronts, and ask why is all this so?"
We don't leave till they give us a truthful answer.
Like Gandhi's marchers against the "Salt Tax" we will stand. We will silently take the blows of their police, and soldiers. However they'll be Million upon Millions of us so that might not work for them.
We just stand there till our grievances are answered. It's just the American Hindu Christian Buddhist Pagan Atheist Anarchist Conservative Liberal Undecided Straight Queer B/L Dyke Young Old none of the above thing to do.
Such a simple thing is what a Revolution is.
