We were warned

We were warned last year that if nothing was done the 1% would by 2016 own half of the world’s wealth, and it has now happened. It has been widely reported today 18.01.16 that 62 people on Earth now have half of the world’s riches. We saw late last year that 579 Australian based businesses were classified as Corporate Bludgers for failing to pay any tax on their $100 mil plus turnovers and today just 18 days into the new year we see this report which demonstrates both the selfishness and the mental illness associated with this position namely “insatiable greed.”
The Abbott/Turnbull LNP government will not legislate to make things in Australia fairer for the everyday people unless there is a groundswell of people who understand that this is not the way things should be, and that with a change in policy governments can redistribute money much more equitably than occurs at present, for the greater good of all, not the few, as we have seen last Friday at Yabulu. Malcolm Frazer used to use a quote “life wasn’t meant to be easy” however life was never meant to be this hard either.
Australians are in general an apathetic mob but when it is pointed out to them that 62 people on earth have as much wealth as the combined total of the rest of the planet’s population, surely something must stir inside them?
