No, the other one. The one I replied today. Now I see it got posted.

Anyway, I stand on your side on this one. I believe riches should be reasonably shared and not be hoarded by a few to control the many. The report is good news to me. It is just that there are discrepancies which I pointed out earlier. The data is definitely not happily received by this organisation which produced this report. If you find me not replying, I do not mean to be rude. I will be busy for the next week or so.

Sometimes my posts are delayed too. I just had trouble logging in tonight.
You can bet hackers are busy at work trying to disrupt this and millions more websites. no matter
what the political motives they might have. Some are doing it out of shear boredom and mischief.
I've found that if I go back to a post I recently made to edit it for typos of what-not, it seems
to get lost in space for minutes, hours, or even a day.
That's the world wide web for you.

The point is, the people who produce the wealth, the laborers, should get much more of a share

I agree with that. Blame it on people who thinks you can enjoy wealth without putting in any effort such as Robert Kiworsaki (I may get his name or spelling wrong). They call it "passive income". Not only that, the financial institutions can make big money just by investing (with others' money). The list goes on. This is a big mess in the modern world. We should go back to bartering.


To engage in the blame game is passive and far too cheap a way of discussing justice. There is no justice when you start assessing the value of people in pecuniary terms, such as "workers" and "capitalists". Such income discrepancies only matter in societies that worship money. We should abolish money first before we start talking about redistributing justice. With money circulating in and fuelling economies, there can never be real justice. An economy works only if there are inequities.

Apportioning blame on the haves is counterproductive, as history has shown many times. After an exercise in redistributing wealth all people are usually worse off.

It also is ludicrous to think a man such as Li Ka-shing or Bill Gates can use up his wealth through consumer activities during his lifetime. Once you have so much lucre amassed in investments and bank accounts, you no longer use the excess money on personal purchases. Many superrich become hilanthropists No communist regime has ever done as much charity as Bill Gates for example.

What's a lavish and expensive way of discussing justice?
How many types of justice are there?
The workers always create things of value. The rich always take credit for these creations.

Justice is a beautiful thing. We should not touch it with our peasant or blue-collar worker hands.

Above all, justice is no thing. It is an impression, a belief as you can gather from expressions such as "justice must be SEEN to have been done..." It cannot be "created".

I didn't know you were such a fan of Plutocracy and had such disdain for common sense.
Who's your favorite master?

Where did I make any admissions of guilt such as those you just trotted out? You have characterized me wrongly and maliciously. Robert, where is your good heart? I am a peacenik, opposed to hating and to harming others. Envy and jealousy are bad guides in an adult person's life.
