1% now wealthier than 99% combined; 40% of US children in poverty; 30,000 children poverty-murdered daily. Arrests of .01% are when now???

hat tips: World Socialist Web Site, GlobalReseach

Credit Suisse documents in Global Wealth Report 2015 that the world’s wealthiest 1% now own more assets than Earth’s 99% combined.

This fact occurs simultaneously while 30,000 children die daily from preventable poverty, despite since 1969 these 1%-and-above wealth and political “leaders” of so-called “developed” and “former” colonial powers have promised to “end poverty once and for all, forever.” The total poverty deaths since just 1995 are ~400 million; more than all wars and violent deaths in recorded human history.

Please take a moment to experience that death from poverty is almost always gruesomely slow and painful, both for the victims and all who love them.

Please also note that “inhumane acts intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily injury” is the legal definition of “Crimes against humanity.” Given several world summits for presidents, prime ministers, and royalty that all global poverty can be ended with provable and simple methods, and for less than 1% of developed nations’ income (appropriately less than 1% of profits extracted from areas suffering poverty during colonialism), and that the end of poverty has been promised at the highest levels of government multiple times only to be reneged, current policies that allow ongoing poverty-deaths are intentional and therefore criminal.

For Americans still zombiefied to “believe” in America, please embrace the reality that 40% of US children live at least one year of their lives in under-measured poverty, while oligarchs most responsible literally laugh in grandiose glee of the poverty they euphemise as “income inequality.” Please absorb this 1-minute reality check:

To visualize this pyramid of wealth inequality/poverty, imagine a room of 100 people with a total of 100 M&Ms to be divided among them. This is the approximate wealth breakdown reported by Bank Suisse:

  • 1 person has 50 M&Ms.
  • 7 people have 5 each.
  • 22 people have one half an M&M each.
  • 70 people have ~1/20th of an M&M; literally taking 3-4 M&Ms to smash, then dividing the tiny pieces among 70 people.

Importantly, please confirm these economic facts that what we receive for economic leadership is literal criminal fraud:

I could go on to literally ~100 areas of crucial concern.

Please understand that I represent likely hundreds of thousands of professionals making factual claims with objective evidence anyone with a high school-level of education can verify. For example, the June 2015 Seizing an Alternative conference (and here, videos here) at the Claremont Colleges had hundreds of professionals presenting data and solutions in over 80 areas of speciality. My paper and videos for this conference is here.

The purpose of education since the “Age of Enlightenment” is to present facts for public verification, and to seize the victory of refuting lies by would-be dictators, especially when such lies are obvious and of crucial public importance.

The path forward as we build a critical mass of humans recognizing the Emperor’s New Clothes truth is to demand arrests and solutions, obviously:

  1. ARRESTS: the first responsible action upon recognizing massive crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions is to demand that law enforcement and military enact arrests of criminal leaders to stop the crimes and begin unwinding the truth of what happened in Earth’s tragic-comedy (four-part article series with videos on arrests as the obvious citizen response).
  2. SOLUTIONS: the .01% with corporate media have suppressed solutions documented beginning with Benjamin Franklin how government can abundantly operate without taxes: monetary and credit reform allow the public to have near-instant prosperity: full-employment, zero public deficits and debt, the best infrastructure we can imagine, falling prices, and release of public TRILLIONS held in “rainy day” accounts. Full documentation here.

We know for certain that until these .01% “leaders” are stopped, all we’ll have is ongoing lies, crimes, and immense suffering. The Founders of the US were keenly aware of the historical failures for people to live in a society free from oligarchs. Greece devolved into an empire demanding tribute, then fell to civil war. Rome devolved into a ridiculous tragic-comedy of corrupt empire, then fell. The American Founders admonished us in the strongest language possible that we face those same risks.

If the 99.99% is to win this time, arrests will happen from:

  1. Growing demand for arrests from those of us sufficiently educated that the facts prove obvious crimes. This is as easy as being the person in the Emperor’s New Clothes pointing-to and stating what anyone can see who looks.
  2. Law enforcement and military’s organic responses to honor their Oaths to arrest literal criminal psychopaths (and here) who ongoingly commit Crimes against Humanity.

I challenge professionals, academics, and citizens to add their voices for the benefit of all Earth’s inhabitants.

    Since our government is so keen on supporting the Saudi’s, perhaps we could apply Vedic law to the arrested. Scripture says there are six crimes for which someone should be killed immediately; burning homes, stealing another’s wife, using poison, using deadly weapons, plundering riches, taking another’s land.

    Isn’t this why they had to take out Hitler? I read somewhere that he threw out the Zionist bankers, and substituted Land Credits [?] and within five years had taken Germany from bankrupcy to being the strongest economy in Europe. Also, who funded the Bolshevik revolution and why?
