Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
If people are out of work, living in poverty, starving, barely existing, long enough....they have nothing to lose if they revolt.
And they will. They are.
"I’m scared," writes Georescu. "The billionaire hedge funder Paul Tudor Jones is scared. My friend Ken Langone, a founder of the Home Depot, is scared. So are many other chief executives. Not of Al Qaeda, or the vicious Islamic State or some other evolving radical group from the Middle East, Africa or Asia. We are afraid where income inequality will lead."
...Georgescu and Langone are telling their patrician peers that if 'inequality is not addressed, the income gap will most likely be resolved in one of two ways: by major social unrest or through oppressive taxes.'"
Why conservative billionaires have started talking like Bernie Sanders: “We are creating a caste system from which it’s almost impossible to escape”
